There is a TP link that you can get from places like Jaycar that will turn your house wiring into extension cords for the router
the operation can be explained at the shop but it means that you can extend the wires to any part of the house and by using ethernet cables will connect other computer, printers and tv units easily
cheaper that new modems and routers

I have a Westinghouse smart TV and I have the WiFi home but it is not connecting to the internet or netflix what must I do


Hi Samantha
Assuming that the WiFi is working around the house with other devices like iPhone / iPad and other computers?
The Westinghouse TV is just another device connecting to your Home Network via a WiFi Signal. Unless it uses a dedicated Ethernet Cable at the back of the set > to Modem Router Box.

So... the problem would require setting up the Westinghouse smart TV with the necessary settings.
Netflix is just a web site and will become available when the TV connects to your Network & External Internet GateWay.

First, you need to know your WiFi Name & Password.
I find it easier to use the iPhone as a test device to check the WiFi signal and set up details first. To Test Password etc.
There is a helpful tool on the App Store called iNet - Network Scanner - See Below
So... you must find the settings for Network on your smart tv.
Setting the tv for DHCP is allowing it to Automatically search for an internet connection. Thats what most people do.
Just choose your WiFi name (SSID) & Password.

But... you can choose your own IP addresses if you like to keep all your devices on a known address.
Eg. Your Router or Modem Box Gateway address 192.168.1.1
Each of the other devices have a unique address.
Computer 1 192.168.1.10
Computer 2 192.168.1.20
Camera 1 192.168.1.100
SmartPhone 192.168.1.130
You can use the end numbers between 1 & 255
Your Gateway might also use another IP Group e.g. 10.0.0.0
Your really only interested in making the last numbers different from each other.

Cheers

Network issues with Samsung Smart TV UN60JU6500FXZA


You mention two separate issues, WiFi and smart hub. As you know Samsung built in manual is the worst idea ever. There is no picture of the complete rear panel connection for example.
If the smart hub is the actual WiFi antenna then if your system doesn't recognize Smart Hub then you have a bad smart hub.
to test smart hub plug something into hub ( DVD HDMI, video game) If your remote has smart hub button press and see what appears. Otherwise select source on remote see if your attached item appears. (That would indicate smart hub does talk to TV)!
Since you can access your network when hard wired your network password is stored.
Once you have verified Smart Hub is functional then work on WiFi.
i will say my Samsung is 3 ft from my router and hard wired for better streaming speed.
I use Bluetooth access to share photos from IPads.
I would leave TV hard wired.

WiFi with my Samsung TV. Today I get wireless connection; next 3 days no wifi. It comes back and then goes away again. I use wired connection, I get internet. I disconnect the wire and no wifi.


Sounds like your wifi signal strength is marginal, or you have interference.

How far are you from your router/access point?

Are there cordless phones, microwaves, fluorescent lights, large motors nearby?

I would just the wired connection. It will be far fewer problems!

How do I get Netflix on my tv


First you need a Netflix account. Then, if you have a smart TV, it needs to be connected to the internet and have the Netflix app. If your TV is not smart, your DVD player probably has Netflix on it and that needs to be connected to the internet. Then you have to log into Netflix on your computer and authorize the new device. They will give you an activation code to enter on the device.

How do I connect to the smart tv


I assume you want to connect your smart TV to your network (e.g. to get Internet access for NetFlix).

Depending upon the precise model, it will support WiFi or wired Ethernet (or both). If your TV supports a wired connection, that will provide the best performance. All you need is a spare port on your router/switch and a straight-through network cable.

If your TV supports WiFi, you'll need to get into the its setup to enter the settings matching your home network - that is, you must choose the SSID (essentially, your WiFi network name; so your TV connects to your network and not your neighbor's) and wireless security information.

\I wish to start up Netflix on my TV


Do you own a smart tv or a streaming device like a Ruko, a blu-ray player with streaming capabilities, or a xbox or other gaming console with streaming feature?... Also you need high speed internet with a downstream speed of 15Mbps or greater for streaming video in HD, an updated modem and a and very fast router running at least 300Mbps or greater. IMO. This works for me.

Watch netflix with samsung TV


Hi , It is easy to have bbc iplayer or UK or US netflix on Samsung smart TV and watch it outside the UK or US
there are two way to do , one is using DNS ,, but no recommended because it blocked occasionally, so the best way is use reliable VPN provider which you can get from this link http://www.overplay.net/#a_aid=vpnprovider
you can get the account and pay for one month 10 $ or one Year 100 $ VPN + smart DNS , also you can ask for refund if not work for you so you are in safe side!

after getting your account ready , you need VPN Router , and technology of VPN better should be openvpn it is faster more stable than pptp or l2tp because it reconnect if even your main connection drop and restored
once your VPN router is ready , just reset your samsung TV to factory default , you can go to TV manual and do it
connect your TV directly to the VPN Router for your reference connection should be like below
Main Internet Router -----> VPN Router ------> TV
restart your TV and live it for 30 minutes ! vola you will see netflix , Pandoora , Spotify will apear on TV apps , just enter your user name password of netflix and start enjoying it !!! let me know if this helps?

I was given Netflix (stream-in) for a gift, but can not get it to come onto our tv. Please help.


Your TV must be a 'smart' TV i.e. it should have software enabling it to connect to the internet and access features such as Netflix. If you don't have a 'smart' TV then you can purchase a set top box which can be connected to your TV and will allow you to access on-line services such as Netflix. If you have a 'smart' TV then you still need to connect it to your internet router, either with an Ethernet cable or via WiFi if the TV has WiFi built in (or you can buy a WiFi adapter for the TV). If you connect with an Ethernet cable then the TV will connect to your router (and internet) with no further setup. If you use WiFi then you will need to access the WiFi settings menu on the TV and configure the settings for your router.

On my Samsung smart tv Netflix movies stop all the time. We have to login all over!


This could be many things. Are you using an Ethernet cable from the router to TV or is it wireless??? Im guessing wireless right??
The router is either too slow or too far away from your Tv. Try moving your wireless router to a location closer to your Tv. If that isn't possible, you could buy a faster router. I'm not sure what router you have, so google it and see if it's outdated. Some of the newer routers are much faster than the old ones and will stream Netflix perfectly.


Also check with Samsung (online) to see if there is a firmware update for your model of TV. The firmware is the software that runs the "smart" portion of your tv. If it's outdated it could cause bugs like lagging Netflix.

Good Luck!!!
