Samsung TV won't connect to Wi-Fi
If your Samsung TV isn't detecting a wireless network (or continuously loses its network connection), the problem might be that your TV simply isn't properly connected to your network. There are a few things that can lead to connection issues, like old firmware or your smart TV needing a reset.
How to connect Samsung TV to Wi-Fi or internet network
- Grab your remote and navigate to the Settings.
- Select the General option, and then select Network.
- Click on Open Network Settings.
- Select your Wi-Fi network from the list.
- If prompted, enter your network password.
- Select Done, then OK.

- Grab your remote & press the Home button to get to Settings.
- Navigate the menu to go to Settings > General > Network.
- Hover over the option to Reset Network and select YES.
