    Network status

    After performing the network status test on your TV, the network status results appear as follows:

    Troubleshooting the built-in wireless LAN connection

    Steps may vary depending on your TV. For model-specific information, check your TV manuals. Manuals are posted on your model support page.

    1. Make sure the built-in wireless function is enabled
    2. Perform a power reset or restart of your TV
    3. Perform the network diagnosis again


      • If your built-in wireless function is enabled, your TV should be able to find available wireless networks nearby. If your TV cannot find a Wi-Fi connection in the Network Connection list (even from other nearby sources), the TV may have a hardware issue and require repair.  Go to Product Repair. 
      • If your TV can't find your Wi-Fi network but can see wireless networks from nearby sources, your TV is functioning properly, and there may be an issue with your network. Try performing a power reset of your modem/router or contact your provider.

    4. Power reset your modem/router
