Question about Miscellaneous

2 Answers

Hi. I am having wifi issues with a Samsung un60ju7090 tv. Very intermittent. Would be working fine then drop connection. Sometimes searches and finds no networks, or finds networks but can't connect

For about a month turning off and on the tv would fix it but rarely works now. Recently, when going into the contact Samsung area of menu, sometimes the wireless MAC address is blank. If I stretch a Ethernet wire across the room, which I prefer not to do, it always works fine.i friend said it might also be a problem with the"main board", but issue is only with wifi.

My Samsung TV gets lots of updates. Once in a while an update causes problems. Check your firmware version and make sure it is the latest. Setting the DNS manually also helped. is one of the settings typically used. You may need to do a factory reset as a last resort. It the TV is forgetting settings is sounds like a hardware issue. And make sure the TV air vents are clean and getting good air flow to prevent excessive heat build up.

SOURCE: wireless router dropping then disappeared

I don't know a solution but the router will appear in the list along with neighboring routers but it will disappear and the others will still be there so it's not an adapter problem something in the router stops sending a signal

SOURCE: can't find mac address on my acer to connect to wireless network at work

i think the wireless at your work filter computers based on their MAC address as a security measure hence you are unable to connect..
to find your comp's MAC address follow this:

  • From the Start button select Run
  • In the box which appears type cmd and click OK
  • A new windows will appear - at the prompt type ipconfig /all
  • The MAC address will be referred to as the Physical Address and is made up of 12 characters e.g. 00-D1-AB-F2-G3-89
    You will have a separate MAC address for your wireless card and your Ethernet card. Make sure you use the correct one

  • do ask the admin of your work wireless system to add your comp's MAC address so that you are able to connect..
    am no expert but love to help out...hope it helps you...all the best!

    You should enter the "Wireless MAC Address" of the XBOX and not just the "MAC Address". You can see it on the system info of the XBOX settings.

    and look for new version of network wireless driver might have. let me know if this doesnt fix the problem.

    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.

    A dongle... There's your problems right there as to why the internet is lacking. Look on your tv for an ethernet port or check in the tv menu for a wifi option.

    wifi will be easy and no cords, but wired with an Ethernet cable sometimes brings better speed and more reliability..

    TV goes off suddenly. Searching for connection.

    'Searching for connection' sounds like it's looking for a network link. check your internet connection. If it's supposed to be watching cable or broadcast TV, check the setup menu.

    Samsung 55" turns ON/OFF by itself and will not connect to wifi network

    I have the same issue. I read and watched online tutorials about the compositors but after opening the set up I was unable to find any that had gone bad. I was able to upgrade the software by using a USB thumb drive but the issues are still there. I'm thinking of swapping out the motherboard and/or the power board next to see what the fix is.
