Looking for some help before I have Samsung come out and check my TV for a repair.
I have used Wifi since I got the TV about 4.5 months ago, but last week it just stopped working in the middle of a show and wouldn't connect no matter what I tried.
I tried turning the TV off and on, killing the power to the tv for a bit and then plugging back in (which usually corrects any errors I had in the past), connecting to a different network on the same router, and power cycling my modem and router.
Nothing has helped yet and I finally just connected via ethernet to get by for the week or so until I can really look into the problem. Ethernet connected right away without trouble.
I will do some more testing and trial and error, but I think the WiFi card in the TV died or something because my phone and tablet haven't had trouble connecting to the internet during all this and I also tried to cast my phone to my TV after it was connected via ethernet and that wouldn't connect either (it worked fine when WiFi worked).
The only thing I haven't tried yet is a full factory reset which I will likely try before having Samsung come out, but I need to write down all of my settings first.
Have you heard of this issue before or how common of an issue is this?
Is there anything else I should try or am I likely on the right track to needing a Samsung tech onsite?
