UE46ES6100 internet connection

by cblake843 / June 10, 2012 8:29 PM PDT

I bought a UE46ES6100 last week and have literally spent all week trying to get it connected to the internet. I've tried everything, i can connect to the modem but no futher. My ISP won't help as my PC and laptop aren't work fine. Run out of ideas now. The auto connection doesn't work at all. The manual insertion of IP's allows me to connect to the modem but no futher. I then get a DNS error message , contact ISP. All rather frustrating, i only bought it for the for SMART TV capability.

Any suggestions before i send it back. Any firmware updates to address this. I see only one for the UE46ES6100 on the website , is it worth trying?

Clarification Request
Please tell more

You wrote you can't access the router which is odd. Is the router yours or someone elses?

You also wrote that "my PC and laptop aren't work fine" which makes me think that a HDTV would not work either.

I'd start over with my router and get my PC working first. Then I would get my HDTV working.

- Can you tell the details of "a DNS error message" and when you get it?
- What does the modem/router management page say about the connection if you look at it from a PC or laptop connected via a Ethernet cable?

Things you don't mention at all:
- do you use a wired or a wireless connection from the TV to the modem
- if wireless:
+ do you use a Samsung vetted dongle?
+-did you provide the correct WEP or WPA2 key?
+ does it work if you set the modem to unsecured WiFi (if possible)?

I've tried both wireless and cable no success on either (same DNS error)
WEP or WPA2 Security Key = Correct
Don't use a Samsung vetted dongle (don't know what this is) , TV was 'wireless ready'.

DNS error message simply says "DNS Error, contact ISP for help" (they won't help).

Can't log on to modem or router tried 1000 times using in browser but won't connect. Haven't tried unsecured WIFI as can't access router.

Let's concentrate on the wired connection. That doesn't need a key nor a dongle. It should just work with the right Ethernet cable. And, indeed, I see in the specs that it has a built-in wireless LAN. So there is no need for a dongle.

Are you sure the address is correct? From a command prompt on a PC or laptop that is connected wired, run ipconfig /all and see what the IP-address of the gateway is. That's what you should use.
