@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]."

      I recently purchased LG commercial TV UTc640s (Asia) and found out that content store is missing and thus can’t even run a simplest application such as Netflix, is there any way we can update firm ware or something to add the content store or am I stuck with that very expensive smart box, that can’t even run a Netflix ? Kindly help please.

      FuboTV’s fantastic live TV streaming service finally arrives on LG TVs
      FuboTV, one of the best over-the-top services for sports enthusiasts, is finally arriving on newer LG Smart TVs.
      While the app was already available on many set-top boxes like the Apple TV or Chromecast, it’s now available on LG’s native webOS platform on 2018–2021 Smart TV models (including LG’s fantastic OLEDs). That’ll give any consumers with newer LG models the ability to access the service’s 100-plus sports and entertainment channels directly from their sets, rather than having to rely on a third-party device for access.
      “Over 90 percent of FuboTV’s viewership is on the big screen and today’s launch on LG Smart TVs expands FuboTV to even more smart and connected TV platforms,” Mike Berkley, FuboTV’s chief product officer, told The Verge.
      Starting at $65 per month, FuboTV offers one of the most robust catalogs of sports-specific programming, though it has plenty of entertainment and news channels peppered in as well. ESPN, ESPN 2, Olympic Channel, CBS Sports Network, Big Ten Network, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, and beIN Sports channels are among those available on the service’s base tier.
      But FuboTV really shines with its sport package add-ons, which offer more diversity in additional sports channels than similarly priced live TV services like Hulu with Live TV or YouTube TV. That said, regional sports networks are fairly limited, but that’s a persistent problem that plagues nearly all OTT live streaming services — not just FuboTV.
      Users on LG Smart TVs will now be able to easily record an entire series with a single click, customize their guide with their favorite channels, and add up to six user profiles, each of which will support personalized recommendations and user-specific recordings.
      Unfortunately, one of FuboTV’s best features, the MultiView tool that supports up to four simultaneous channel streams at once, is still limited to the Apple TV, a spokesperson told The Verge. But hey, at least you’ll be able to use the app on your fancy LG OLED without the help of a third-party box, stick, or dongle.

      Hi,
      I got 2 LG smart TV's running Software Version 06.00.15 and after this update WiFi has stopped working and the WiFi in both TV's will only stay connected when I am in All settings-->Network-->Wi-Fi Connection and the TV's are also feeling really slow in the menu but the moment I plug in a ethernet cable and disable WiFi everything works and the menu is smooth so I believe there is something up with this software version.
      I have a iPhone 12 Pro Max, Laptop and some other devices on WiFi no issues at all.
      The TV in the living room is a LG 49UJ701V the one in my bed room is a LG 55UK6100PLB.
      Anyone got a suggestion I can try? I do not want to reset them because I do not want to calibrate them both again it's a pain.

      Hello,
      The WiFi would abruptly disconnect and the smart TV becomes extremely slow when navigating to the settings and becomes almost unresponsive. Unplugged, waited overnight and restarted, the WiFi connected for a minute or so, and again the same issue. The mouse cursor would disappear after few seconds and navigation only possible with the up/down/right/left key. WiFi list is empty and the TV keeps "searching..", even if it lists my WiFi, after entering the password (takes a very long time) it gives a message "Cannot connect to the network, retry" 
      Tried the following options and no luck, can anybody help??
      - Unplug the TV, WiFi router and restart
      - Set the date and time manually in the TV
      - Turn off Quick Start
      - Selected appropriate country in location
      - Firmware updated (No more updates found) 
      TV model: 43UJ632T-TA, Software Version: 06:00:15, webOS Version: 43UJ632T-TA
      WiFi is 5 GHz with more than 120 mbps connection, couple of other devices connected without issues.
