WiFi off


Silentmeow

Question

Since last update,we have had a problem with not being able to connect tv first to our WiFi and then after resetting our modem,etc. It now says WiFi is turned off. Have done a reset but didn’t help also had the annoying message about something being disconnected until I put in store mode. Our model is 55UJ6300. It seems a lot of people are having this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?

It's tough to troubleshoot WiFi issues.   There could be several reasons and not just one single fix.    My LG TV is an older model and had a few issues years ago with connecting to WiFi.    Here's a few dumb scenarios that could have an impact.   1.  Is your modem located in different room?   2.   If you reset your modem, sometimes it will take minutes for it to fully reset (hence, will not detect your WiFi /  says it is disconnected).   3.   Weak/lost signal from your internet provider outside of your home (which can occur during high-traffic time of day over cable lines or their tech problems).    The only thing I suggest is to power off the TV.   Then, pull the power cord on the router-modem/then plug it in again.   Wait for as long as 10 mins for the modem to reboot (sounds like a long time, but just to be certain it has fully rebooted).    Power on the TV,  then go to the TV's settings menu for Network.   Choose Wi-Fi Connection and look for the name of your router/modem, select it and enter the password.    I would avoid putting the TV into Home|Store Mode until you determine if this works at all.    Store Mode has nothing to do with saving your Wi-Fi settings.   That's it!   Also, consider if your router-modem may need to be replaced.   Good luck!

Hi,

Add to the list of possibilities:

Are you running on 2.4GHz or 5GHz WiFi?  If it is 2.4GHz then there are a multitude of things that can affect it from cordless house phones to microwave ovens.

Channel overlap.  Do you have neighbours close by?  If so their WiFi could be interfering with yours by using the same channel (between 1 & 15 depending on your country), there are plenty of apps for your mobile device to check this problem out.

I had done all of the things you had suggested before and unfortunately none of it worked. The reason I have in store mode is so we don’t have the annoying message that something is disconnected constantly appearing on the screen. We know it’s not the router as when I hooked up an amazon fire stick it worked fine. Thanks for your input.

It is easier for us to use an Amazon Fire Stick which works fine when attached to the tv then to hook up the Ethernet. Our router is in another room and since we have a phone modem  it’s too complicated to move it all. I checked here to see if there was something I had missed. Since it says the WiFi is off. Thanks for your input.

Good luck. I'm betting there's an issue with the TV - this problem is all over the forum. I can't get the wifi to work - I'm using ethernet. I'm also constantly getting that damned pop up about network devices being disconnected, then reconnected. This is an LG issue and for anyone in their support team to suggest otherwise is denying what is clearly an LG problem. Time for LG to step up and deliver a little customer service.

      I have a  LG OLED55C14LB WebOS TV in the same room as my xubuntu desktop computer and router.

      I have installed Gnome Network Displays on the Linux PC and both machines are on the same 5G network.

      When I connect the PC to the TV via WiFi the TV puts up a 'cancel' option and no option to connect. The Network display app only has an option to 'Return' which closes the connection.

      If I do nothing and wait the connection times out and returns to the TV program. The TV is obviously waiting for permission to connect.

      I cannot see any way to 'accept' the connection via the TV remote. Can anyone tell me how to accept the connection?
      In addition, is it possible to have the TV remember the WiFi password? Passwords are complex nowadays and it is a pain to keep having to input it. This make casting your desktop a chore.

      J'ai un problème avec le bouton activer/ désactiver le WiFi. Je mets bien le curseur de la télécommande dessus, je clique avec la roulette de la télécommande mais il ne se passe rien.
      Quelqu'un pour m' aider? 
      Merci

      i thought of using my handphone to act as a remote control for the TV.............but it will only work with WiFi ??!!

      i had BlueTooth still turned on..............TV is using LAN connection only.........and the phone can no longer control the TV (the phone can control the TV with WiFi on)............is this normal ?? 


      many thanks in advance............

      My LG SJ850V stopped finding any wifi network about a week ago. The software version is 6.10.30. I don't know the reason this could happen, as it was working perfectly fine a week ago.

      Hi,
      I recently bought an LG UK6500PLA TV (my first LG), but I have a difficult time streaming content (Wifi connected), e.g. Netflix series is streaming in low resolution.  The router is only 10 feet away from TV (but ethernet is not an option) and uses a 5GH frequency range.
      I have tried making a speed test at fast.com, for both the TV (through the Webbrowser) and for my laptop and iPhone. The speed test for TV showed 2.5 Mbps and my laptop and iPhone showed 110 Mbps. Can there really be such a big difference? I am starting to wonder if this might be a warranty issue?
      Do any of you guys have experience with bad Wifi reception on your LG TV or have any suggestions on how to fix it? 
       
      Br,
      Nick
