My WebOS tv will not pick up WiFi anymore. It says searching and never finds it. This has been going on now for about 3-4 months. I keep calling LG and they keep repeating the same thing. I’ve tried every way and it still won’t connect. Why did it stop? It’s annoying me!
My Chrome browser version is so old by now that it doesn't work well with many sites.. I don't see how I can update it, but I'm positive there must be a way. Any tips? How do I update my firmware as well?
Hello, Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV? The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame on you LG!!!) while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX.
Hello Does anyone know what the changes are in 05.05.70?

I did a refresh of my LG TV 3 days ago. Sold the old LG 47" 3D LED TV and bought new 55" LG Super UltraHD TV with WebOS. I believe, the biggest con of this new TV is WebOS. Its totally frustrating. Sorry for WebOS fans.
It isn't that smart and functional they way it looks. The problem I having since 3 days and being a network engineer, I am unable to solve a network issue myself which is even more frustrating for me.
Ok, let me explain the issue. The TV when installed was connected to LAN cable to my router which has direct internet connection. The TV works and none of the apps were working. Basically TV wasn't able to connect to internet via apps. If i open web browser, it was working fine with all webpages showing correctly.
I'll skip the part of contacting LG support which was useless. All troubleshooting steps like resetting, formatting, changing time zone, location, region was done but no luck. Finally I connected the TV via mobile hotspot and it just worked which gave me the clue that some ports are being blocked by my ISP or router.
My internet setup is this way. Internet cable from ISP -> ISP Modem (can do NAT and work as router) - WiFi Router (NAT, DHCP, etc) -> all LAN clients. I put my LG TV in DMZ, opened all ports, etc but no luck. Then I converted my ISP modem as router and connected the LG TV directly to it and it started working..!!!
My WiFi Router is TP-Link Archer C7 and I was using stock firmware. Thought it was creating issues and I installed DD-WRT, Open-WRT but no luck at all. The apps which were installed in TV when TV was connected directly to modem are still working fine. Youtube, Plex, Netflix, etc all are working but when I open LG Content Store, it just refuses to load.
I am not sure what wrong my TP-Link router is doing. There is something wrong with the LG TV content store. If it requires to open ports, then I would like to know which ones.
Sorry for the long port, may be my frustration of 3 days with no luck.!!

I am having some issues with wifi connectivity on my TV.
Anything in the 1 tier of 5ghz channels I get proper speeds.
But anything in the tier 2 or 3 gives me awful speeds.
I have tested with multiple routers and accesspoints and the problem is the same on all of them.
The only channels on the 5ghz band that give good speeds are tier 1 (34-64)
Any firmware update planned ?
I have LG 49UB850T Smart UHD TV. Recently, I updated the WebOS, from that point, I observed my TV is very very very slow while browsing the Youtube / Netflix / Amazon Prime / SBS OnDemand any live streaming.
Here are few details:
Seriel Number: 404KCZPR3501
Software Version: 05.05.75
WebOS Version: 1.4.0-2334(afro-ashley)
Can I get any fix to this OS version or suggest me what I have to do to fix this issue.
