Samsung UE46F8005 TV crashes wireless network!

by mwaau / February 1, 2014 5:38 AM PST

Hi all,

I just bought the Samsung UE46F8005 tv and every time I try to stream a movie or something from my NAS, my wifi connection crashes after a while. Not just the tv's connection to the network, but the complete network itself crashes, and I cannot connect from any other device before I shut down the tv. Then the connection establishes itself again immediately, which is very clear from a wifi analyzer app I have on my phone. I have tried changing wifi channels several times and I also have the latest firmware on my tv and router. The tv is not far from the router, and I have the following settings on the tv:

Automatic IP:
Subnet Mask:
Automatik DNS:
Firmware: 1113
WPA2-PSK encryption

Does anyone know what the problem could be?

We saw this years ago with Windows Vista.

No network fix?

Thanks for your post Bob. However, it seems like most of the suggestions in the article are related to changing the settings on a Laptop when a network crashes, is that not right? I am not sure which part of it would help me, but maybe you can point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

I see it's too hard to see that eventually the router makers issued new firmware for the routers to work with the broadcast flag they didn't handle before.

That is, you want it to be fixed by Samsung so at this point you need to make the call or return the TV.
