#4: Alter your IP and DNS settings

If your TV still can’t connect after entering your network name and password…

A message may show up telling you to change your Network or IP settings.

If you’re curious, IP means ‘Internet Protocol.’

Its function is to identify each device on the internet. And it’s composed of numbers and periods.

In some cases, this needs to be updated before your TV lets you connect to the Internet.

How to fix it:

Step 1: Know your IP address and DNS server number

You can use your mobile phone to get the info needed.

For iOS users
  1. Go to “Settings.”
  2. Find and select “Wi-Fi.”
  3. Click on the “i” icon on the right side of your current network name.
  4. Cycle down to view your IP address. 
  5. Write it down.
  6. For the DNS server, scroll down again then click “Configure DNS.”

Note: You’ll see your DNS server number at the bottom part.

  1. Again, write the info down. 
For Android users
  1. Navigate to “Settings.”
  2. Click “Wi-Fi Settings.”
  3. Select your current network.
  4. Go to “Manage Network Settings.”
  5. Choose “Show Advanced Options.”
  6. Click “IP Settings.”
  7. Set your IP settings to “Static.” (You’ll now see your network details.)
  8. Write down both your IP address and DNS server number.

Step 2: Input the info you gathered on your TV

  1. Press the “Menu” button on your remote.
  2. Go to “Network.”
  3. Select “Network Status.”
  4. Click “IP Settings.”
  5. Select “IP Setting.”
  6. Choose “Enter manually” or “Manual Configuration.”
  7. Input the IP address you listed down.
  8. Go to “DNS setting” and do the same.
  9. Press “OK” once you’re done. 

Then see if the connection issue still persists.

#5: Look at your TV’s signal strength

If your TV can’t connect to any networks, your router might also have a weak signal.

How to check this?

Follow these easy steps:

  1. Press your remote’s “Home” button.
  2. Go to “Settings.”
  3. Select “General” and click “Network.”
  4. Choose “Open Network Settings.”
  5. Click “Wireless.”
  6. Count how many Wi-Fi bars are shown on the screen. (This indicates the strength of your signal.)

Note: If the bars are full, you don’t have an issue with your connection. The problem could be in your Samsung TV. But if not, try the tips below to boost your Wi-Fi signal.

#6: Move your router

Do you only have 1 to 2 bars on your Wi-Fi signal strength?

If this is the case, try relocating your router first. As well as changing its antennas’ positions.

Why?

A router’s location greatly affects the quality of the connection.

If it’s too far from your devices, they may find it hard to connect with the network. 

And also, there will be many dead zones (spaces with little or no Wi-Fi signal) in your house.

Where to relocate your router?

  • Away from wireless devices: To prevent interference of signals.
  • On a high place: To improve connection as signals travel downwards.
  • In the middle of the house: To have a more equal signal distribution in all your rooms.

Then, if your router has an external antenna, turn it into a better position.

Where to best point your router antennas?

  • 1 antenna: Point it upwards.
  • 2 antennas: Point one upwards and the other one sidewards.

#7: Consider a Wi-Fi extender

If relocating your router isn’t enough to increase your signal, think of buying a Wi-Fi extender.

“What is it?”

It’s also called a Wi-Fi repeater. And its job is to expand your network’s coverage.

You only have to plug this in a power outlet. Then it’ll amplify the signals from your router and distribute them to all your devices.

How neat!

You can get this online.

But since there are many choices to choose from, here’s our best picks to help you decide:

#8: Use a wired network

This is perfect if you have another LAN cable at home. And also, if your router and TV are close to each other.

Connecting your device to a wired network will reduce your stress. As you don’t have to worry about unstable signals anymore.

Plus, you can do this in just a few minutes.

How to connect your Samsung TV to a wired network:

  1. Get a LAN cable.
  2. Plug one end into your router.
  3. Insert the other end into your TV’s ethernet port.

Then that’s it.

Note: The only downside of this is that you can’t place your TV further away from your router if you have a short LAN cable.

#9: Reset Samsung Smart Hub

Now, if the tips above don’t work and your connection seems fine…

There might be something wrong with your Samsung Smart Hub.

If so, the simplest fix for it is a reset.

But before doing this, let me remind you that restart and reset are 2 different things.

The former only turns your app on and off. So no changes will be made to it.

Whereas the latter erases all saved accounts and settings on your Smart Hub.

Note: So if you opt for a reset, make sure that you have everything listed down (e.g., account names, passwords).

How to reset Samsung Smart Hub:

  1. Press the “Home” button on your remote.
  2. Go to “Settings.”
  3. Choose “Service Care.” (This can be “Device Care” or “Support” in other TV models).
  4. Select “Self Diagnosis.”
  5. Click “Reset Smart Hub.”
  6. Enter your TV’s PIN. (If this is unchanged, the default is ‘0000’).
  7. Select “OK” if the reset is done.

#10: Update your firmware automatically

The next thing you need to do is make sure that your Samsung firmware is up-to-date.

“Wait. What is it?”

Firmware is said to be similar to an operating system in computers.

It’s the one controlling your TV. Plus, it also holds all the data, applications, and preferences of your device.

Now, Samsung gives occasional updates for their TV firmware. So ensure that your device is always up-to-date.

Why?

Samsung stated 3 important reasons.

You have to update your TV firmware to be equipped on any:

  • New features on HDMI or energy efficiency.
  • Current and future broadcast system changes.
  • Alterations in streaming app requirements. (Say, on Netflix or Youtube.)

How to update your Samsung TV firmware:

  1. Hold your remote and press the “Home” button.
  2. Navigate to “Settings.”
  3. Select “Support.”
  4. Choose “Software Update.”
  5. Click “Update Now.”
  6. Wait until your TV finishes scanning for available new updates.
  7. Select “OK” once it’s done.

“Help! My update button is grayed out.”

If you can’t click “Software Update,” here’s a trick you can try.

  1. Press the “Source” button on your remote.
  2. Click the right arrow to switch source (e.g., HDMI1).
  3. Then press the left arrow to go back to “TV.”
  4. Navigate again to “Settings.”
  5. Repeat the steps I listed above. (In ‘How to update your Samsung TV firmware.’)
  6. Check if you can now click the update option.
