@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]."

      For the past few years I have been using a 2nd generation Apple TV to watch YouTube videos on my LG Smart TV, however as of today Apple have disabled their YouTube app for this particular device.
      I presumed I would be able to use a YouTube app on my TV to continue watching videos in this way, after all has anyone ever heard of a Smart TV without a YouTube app? Since most new TVs are smart TVs these days most people I know have one and they all have the capability to play YouTube videos, usually you don't even have to download the app as it is one of the ones that comes pre-installed.
      However I cannot find a YouTube app in the LG content store. I've not really tried to install new apps on my TV since getting it so I don't know if I'm looking in the right place, or it is one of those things like with smartphones where there are multiple places you can go and download apps from.
      Bizarrely though, despite there being no YouTube app, there is a YouTube kids app, so it's not like LG have never heard of YouTube or anything, they just don't seem to have realised that people other than kids watch videos on it.

      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,

      My Lg TV which has the smart functions and magic remote is playing up. 
      I often use web browser or you tube or similar apps to watch videos etc. 
      Recently however, it keeps crashing and displays a message to the effect that the memory in the app is low or it need to close to free up more memory? 
      My TV is less then 2 years old and is doing this. I love the telly and the smart features especially the web browser function, however this recent issue is making me think about the longevity of such LG smart TVs and whether I should've spent a few hundred more and got another telly. 
       
      Please can someone advise what I can do to fix this as it takes away the whole point of smart TV. 
      Thanks

      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. 
      Kind regards,
