I recently acquired an LG Smart TV that helped bring my living room into the new century with its amazing picture quality and all its bells and whistles. However, I hit a small snag when I tried to connect it to my wireless network. After entering my password, the TV would stay connected for about a minute before it dropped and forgot its connection. I tried to research this issue online and tried implementing a few of the suggested solutions I found, including disabling my wireless security and creating an LG account for it to save my settings, but nothing seemed to work.
What finally fixed the problem for me was simply resetting my modem/router’s Wi-Fi password to the default password, which is printed on the side of the modem. I was previously using a generated 63-character long mess of letters, numbers and characters to try making my wireless network as secure as possible. All my other wireless devices worked despite the complicated password, so I don’t know why the TV couldn’t stay connected. That’s the least of my worries, though, for my TV finally the works as intended.
