Question

I bought a OLED55CXPUA and the ethernet was only getting 5Mbps using Fast test , and 18Mbps using Ookla test . I get 495 Mbps when connecting ethernet to PC ,so Spectrum said its not their router. I called LG support 3 times and couldn't solve issue , so I returned TV and bought a OLED55CXAUA at Costco. I get exactly the same ethernet speeds. I'm not very experienced with network issues , so I would appreciated any input. I did get an email from LGCareCenter saying "Regarding this one, we have received an update from our specialists. The maximum speed of an LG TV when wirelessly connected to a home network is 1.3 Gbps or 1300 Megabits per second. If 1.3Gbps is supplied via Cat 5 (hardline) speed test may not show that as actual speed available, but please do take note that the unit will only take what it needs to stream or surf the net. If you stream a movie and it buffers, please try to run a speed test using the URL of

. If speed shows say 5 Mbps, please check the router settings for Priority settings." Does this  sound accurate , I do get about 50Mbps over WIFI so why wouldn't  WIFI show the same speed results unless its only ethernet that only takes the speed needed for steaming. I contacted LG support again and they said a tech would have to come to diagnose and if its not a TV defect I would have to pay for service . The TV is only 10 days old.

@HankO Even if you router LAN connections, and any LAN Switches (to split single LAN cable to several hard wired boxes), are 1GB speed (i.e. 1000MBPS), the TV Ethernet chip-set will ONLY support up to 100Gbps, and even then you "lose" some bandwidth due to protocol loss (i.e. TCP/IP - Ethernet data packet dissassembly and re-assembling into a usable digital data stream).

I do not know of any LG TV's that support 1GB speed yet, not sure of any other makes/models.

Can you please confirm if you have the TV connected via WiFi or Ethernet LAN cable? 

If you are close enough to your router or AP (Access Point for WiFi), then good routers can supply that 1300Mbps you are after. It DOES depend on the channel your router is using, and the level of any interference from neighbours routers or AP's. If you have a modern laptop, that has 5GHz WiFi card in it (do NOT confuse that with phone 5G, that means Fifth Generation, NOT the 5GHz band!) a good place to start is to check the WiFi strength (signal quality)  near the TV.

I use this free software from Nirsoft. It wil show you your OWN WiFi network, the channel SSID for both the 2.4GHz and the faster 5GHz SSID (if they are not merged under one SSID, that makes it difficult).It also shows the signal quality, and OTHER nearby routers, and channels that THEY are using. For WiFi on the 2.4 I found channel 8 is often good, and channel 36 for the 5GHz, but channel 44 is also often good. 

Here is the link:

NOTE: this will give you a ZIP file to download, so place it into its own folder, double click on it, and let it extract to the same folder. You can then just double click on the .EXE file in there, if you have "show file types" ticked on your file explorer view tab.

By the way, if you are not sure about logging into your router (and it is one of these in the Spectrum page below),  click on the down arrow by your router make/model, log in and check yout WiFi details for the channels (often in WiFi advanced settings), and change the channel numbers to avoid interference from others in the area, if needed:

I'm using Ethernet , WIFI not reliable . I don't expect 495Mbps to TV but I only get 5Mbps with Fast speedtest and 18 with Ookla . Netflix says you need 25 Mbps for 4K streaming. I did see in post someone used a usb to ethernet adapter . I got one from Amazon and connected through it. Going through USB my speed increased to 15-25 Mbps with FAST and 50 Mbps with Ookla. When I check network settings it say both wired not connected , but it works with Netflix and other Apps . I could live with that , but I dont think I should have to use a $15 adapter to work around an ethernet connection on a brand new high end TV.  And I'm not sure if any other internet apps would be affected. Thanks for your reply , I appreciate any help.

      Hello,
      Is it possible to add the driver for external usb 3 gigabit ethernet adapters  in the firmware to support them and get more network bandwith like on the oled TV C9 and CX (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgJUUNCsHao) to give to the product the ability to play 4K hdr mkv remux of high bit rate blurays without stuttering (like gemini man or billy lynn for example streamed from Plex server with giga network) ? If you play the same file on direct attached usb drive, no stuttering at all and it's ultra fast to load and fast forward for example.
      It already supports external usb2 FastEthernet adapters with ASIX AX88772 chipset and work well on both type A and type C ports, I have tested it, but it is also a 100Mbit/s adapter like the integrated one, so same bandwith, and stuttering is always here.
      The driver that need to be added to the firmware is the one for the usb 3 gigabit ethernet adapters with ASIX AX88179 chipset like on oled C9 and CX, but no luck, at least with firmware 3.0.0.8 it is not supported, eihter with type A  ports or with the type C port (I have tested both, RJ45 leds stay OFF, the same with a power usb 3 hub in between, driver not included in the firmware).
      I have also tesed usb3 gigabit ethernet adapter with realtek RT L8153 chipset, wich is seems to be supported on older oled C7 and C8, but it is also not supported (blinking leds this time but no connection, driver not included in the firmware).
      This is very frustrating for a 1800$ product !

All apps are upto date.  Any suggestions?

      Connecting with consumers is critical to gaining their attention in a cluttered environment. To drive home the superiority of LG OLED TVs with consumers, LG in the USA has launched Only on OLED, a campaign and content strategy that positions LG as the necessary and exclusive partner to the biggest moments in entertainment. Focusing on key consumer passions that are drivers for TV purchases, the campaign will feature unparalleled access to unique events and moments best enjoyed on LG OLED TVs.
      The key components of Only on OLED include a live celebrity gaming showdown series, docu-style short films featuring professional star athletes and exclusive sneak peeks at never-before-seen content from some of this year’s most anticipated movie releases available only on LG TV’s FOMO Channel app on the webOS smart TV platform.


      “The Only on OLED program embraces the entertainment passion points of our consumers taking them beyond the actual movie, sporting event or gaming play with never-before-seen events and behind-the scenes content best experienced on OLED TVs,” said Peggy Ang, LG US’s senior vice president of marketing.
      The campaign kicked off last week with the first LG OLED Ultimate Gaming Showdown featuring multi-platinum-selling music mogul DJ Khaled and world-renowned actor Megan Fox. The two stars competed in a head-to-head Fortnite battle, live streamed on professional esports team Evil Geniuses’ .

      The event, which generated more than one million live views, focused on LG OLED’s unrivaled superiority as the best TV for gaming. PR coverage in lifestyle and gaming publications including People Magazine and Hypebeast, and a series of witty social media videos featuring Fox and Khaled were the key drivers generating consumer attendance.
      Khaled and Fox were both coached by Evil Geniuses talents Justin “FearItSelf” Kats and Wilton “Zews” Prado. Fox’s celebrity boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly also made an unexpected cameo appearance.
      Following the live event, LG TV owners will have exclusive access to behind-the-scenes content plus the ability to watch the event on-demand on LG’s exclusive FOMO Channel app. Future Gaming Showdown participants and battles will be announced throughout the year.

      Only on OLED will also deliver exclusive sports and movie experiences featuring star athletes and some of the most anticipated movie releases of 2021. Launching this spring, Only on OLED will debut two bespoke short films featuring professional football and basketball superstars taking fans behind-the-scenes for a glimpse into the story behind the player. And this summer, LG TV owners will have access to exclusive content from a few of this year’s highly anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures film releases. More details on these programs will be announced at a later date.
