I recently updated the firmware on my LG43UH610V. Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.
Cable was working fine. Had to unplug TV and cable to reboot because the TV screen kept cutting to black and was up to about 30 seconds each time (it gets progressively longer, until I unplug the TV and cable box, and do the hold-the-on-button-for-10-seconds-and-start-over fix, which has worked in the past for this problem, as well as the app restarting for memory thing). Well, now I’m unable to get the cable signal back.
— I swapped cable box from HDMI 1 to 2 and Apple TV from 2 to 1. No signal from cable in HDMI 2, but Apple TV worked in 1.
— Bought new HDMI cord. No signal.
— Restarted the TV from scratch and re-setup everything No signal.
— Called cable company and had them troubleshoot. No signal.
— Hooked cable box to another TV. Bam! Signal! Works fine!
So, why won’t the TV recognize the cable box? I have Consolidated Communications, but cable’s worked when accidentally set to AT&T, as well as Comcast in the past.
Sorry if I sound dramatic, but I’m really, really irritated that I spent $1900 on a TV that has to be rebooted multiple times a week, and the fact that I’ve seen posts on here regarding the app reset problem dating back to 2017, yet LG’s chosen not to fix this issue. It’s ridiculous.

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.
The latest FW 05.80.55 has completely messed up my tv and I have rolled back to 05.80.15 successfully. However I would like to have my TV on FW 05.80.35 since I was very happy with that one.
Anyone who has a copy of that one, 05.80.35?
