Very disappointing Ethernet connection on 55NANO796NE


Laurie Reynolds

Recommended Posts

I just upgraded my old Sony TV for a LG 55NANO796. The  WiFi and wired ethernet speeds are not adequate to support 4K streaming over Internet. I installed a FTTH 900meg service with intention of streaming 4KHD TV,  stream is  pausing every minute or so for 3-5s while download catches up.  TV is very close to a WiFi mesh AP with RJ45 socket, WiFi and cable speeds on TV webOS are similar, ping of 40ms, 16Meg down and 95M upload.  I'm  measuring speed with Speedtest.net.  I connected Raspberry Pi4 media Centre (£35) and got  7ms & 110M up and down  from same AP connection.  LG have clearly  underspeced  the Ethernet buffer for 4K streaming.

Depending on the LG model and firmware version, one (or both) of these might fix the slow WiFi issues:

1) Open the built-in app, Screen Share, from Recents.

2) Click on Listen Mode.

3) Set it to Off.

The other setting to turn off, is Quickstart (or Quickstart+ on some models)

When done, power off and unplug your TV for 30 seconds, plus back in, and turn on.

If the WiFi is still slower than it should be, ensure it is on the 5GHz band rather than on the 2.4GHz band, as depending on your router and Internet service,you SHOULD be able to get a minumum of 600Mbps with 5GHz (hopefully higher with better routers), but the 2.4GHz tends to max out at 300Mbps. NOTE: this will still be 3 times the 100Mpbs max for the Ethernet LAN cable connection, as there are no 1GBE LAN cards (1000Mpbs) in LG TV sets at the moment as @George Hofmeister  says.

If your 5GHz Wifi is still slow, log into your router, and go to the WiFi advanced setup for the 5GHz network, and ensure it is on a lower channel than 100, I find that channel 36 works well in my location, some find 44 is good.

      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!

      Recently my LG C1 has been pausing on its own and going back to the profile selection screen while using native apps. This issue occurs while using Netflix, Disney+, Paramount+, etc.  I tried using my Firestick and it kept pausing my program. I tried a hard reset and that fixed the problem for 2 days before it started again with Disney+. 
      I need a fix for this issue ASAP.

      I brought LG LED 124cm 49UK7500  UHD/4K from India to UK. Will the TV support UK TV channels such as BBC and others through a TV Aerial cable or do i need to buy a FreeView box?
