@anand shinde 

Is this the 43UK6780PTE TV model you were posting about back in June?

1) When did this start to happen?
2) Has anything changed since then (firmware update, New router, New ISP, change from 2GHz band to 5GHz band on the WiFi)??
3) what is the SSID name of your network on those bands?
4) Have you checked with you phone near the TV to see what the signal strength is (The WiFi bars icon, NOT the phone tower signal strength). Ensure you check the same band that the TV is using.

NOTE: for item 3, the reason I ask, is that some models of LG TV do NOT like connecting to SSID names with LONG names (over 8 characters, and/or with special characters in).

After firmware update

@anand shinde OK, thanks for confirming the model number, and that it happened after a firmware update. So, did you investigate what WiFi band you are using (2.4GHz or 5GHz), and what the SSID names are for these bands, that your router is broadcasting (see the 8 characters and over issue)? There could ALSO be another issue, regarding using high channel numbers, as the later firmware may have tightened up some channel range/restrictions for different countries rules (or maybe even got the tightening up too strict). The info below makes the assumption that you can log into your router, and you are able to view the advanced WiFi settings, and see the channel it is using for the 5GHz band. NOTE: if your WiFi is often dropping in and out due to the issues mentioned, it may well need you to re-input the password if it thinks it is a new connection. I know that should not happen if it has a previous "record" of the correct SSID name, BUT this firmware update could have introduced a buggy setup on the WiFi interfacing. 

I will reproduce my post on this below for your comment and feedback (as some users have found this fixes the 5GHz side for some TV models):

"For those who get frequent WiFi connection drop-outs, I picked this bit of useful info from another forum. Note that this may well apply to many other LG models than the C9, as they often use common WiFi internal cards/modules:

"Network/Ethernet/Wi-Fi

Problem: C9 [or other models] will lose the wireless connection and you have to reconnect daily (but wired is stable);
Conditions: TV is connected to a 5GHz router;
Cause:           (1) the router may be unstable on the 5GHz band [possibly too far from router]; (2) the router has the 5GHz band set on a higher channel - over 100;
Resolution: (1) change the TV to the 2.4GHz band
                          (2) set the channel [in the ROUTER advanced WiFi settings]!! for the 5GHz band below 100 (ex. 40-50) - [channel 36 is often OK]."

      Company Showcases Breadth of Technological Capabilities at
      Global Communications Conference in Seoul

      SEOUL, May 17, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing a diverse range of innovative, new mobility technologies, including connected vehicle solutions leveraging 6G and AI, at the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) 2022. Open from May 16-20 at COEX Convention & Exhibition Center in Seoul, South Korea, this year’s ICC adopts the theme of ‘Intelligent Connectivity for Smart World’ and features a hybrid format combining physical exhibits and in-person attendance with virtual content and online participation.
      One of the IEEE Communications Society’s two flagship conferences, ICC typically attracts around 2,000 attendees from over 70 countries. The annual event offers exciting keynotes and robust technical paper sessions as well as informative and engaging tutorials, workshops and industry discussions.
      In keeping with ICC 2022’s intelligent connectivity theme, LG is showcasing its OMNIPOD concept car; a fully autonomous, connected vehicle that can act as an extension of one’s living or workspace. LG OMNIPOD employs the unique, floor-to-ceiling Meta-environment Screen and a host of other advanced technologies to adapt to passengers’ unique needs. Able to serve as practically any kind of space, from an office or recording studio to a video-editing workroom or even a lounge, the OMNIPOD is a future mobility solution that completely reimagines the in-vehicle experience.
      Additionally, LG is displaying its world-class 6G communications technologies, including Full Duplex Radio transmission and reception tech that maximizes frequency efficiency, and a power amplifier device, jointly developed with the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), for the wireless transmission and reception of 6G THz data. The company is also demonstrating its Soft V2X (with V2X standing for “vehicle to everything”) smartphone solution, which enables a vehicle to communicate in real-time with nearby vehicles, pedestrians and infrastructure to create a safer driving environment. The company is also presenting its on-device AI chip, which can be applied to various home appliances providing a smart life experience.
      “As the automotive industry is transitioning to a software-enabled ecosystem, LG is proactively developing next-generation technologies,” said Kim Byoung-hoon, CTO at LG Electronics. “Based on its advanced 6G and AI tech, LG will continue to strengthen its capabilities in various fields such as 6G communications, smart mobility, metaverse and robotics to take the customer experience to new heights.”
      Named an IEEE Fellow last year in recognition of his research achievements and expertise in the field of communications, the CTO will be delivering a keynote titled ‘Technology Advances in Connectivity and Software Defined Architecture for Smart Mobility’ at ICC on May 17. Mr. Kim will introduce the company’s direction regarding the transition to the software defined vehicle (SDV), as well as its latest solutions and services based on SDV and smart mobility technology.

      I've got my ThinQ and Google Home apps and Google Home speakers set up to turn off my LG C1.  But they won't turn it on, I guess because the TV isn't listening for commands when off.   I expected that enabling these Settings|General|Devices|TV Management|Quick Start+ Settings|General|Devices|External Devices|TV On With Mobile|Turn on via Wi-Fi would do it, but it did not.
      OMG I just discovered that Alexa turns on the TV...and I never even had to open let alone set it up in the Alexa app!
