This is such a broad arena so I'm just going to drop the ball here. If there is a better place to post this, or if this horse has been beaten, I'd appreciate some direction.

We bought a Samsung 32" LED not so 'Smart TV' that seems to have a mind of its own. It will show no network connection monday through thursday. Then usually on friday it gets charged up by Samsung with an update and its good for the weekend. Monday morning its back to no connection.
I'm guessing that this is a Samsung issue, since the TV is the only thing in the house that has a problem. Otherwise, as simply a TV, the thing is fabulous.

Has anyone experienced this with a Samsung not - so -smart product?

The wireless radios in those TV's suck! Try running a hard line from your router to the TV.

In order of reliability & functionality:

1. Cat 5/6 ethernet cable (always preferred)
2. Powerline ethernet adapter
3. Wireless extender w/ethernet connection
4. Built-in WiFi

There is also MoCa but you would need to have an extra coaxial cable in the area.

Thanks. Yeah the wireless was blamed by Samsung of course, So I ordered a bunch of stuff from Monoprice and wired every room in the house. Same issue with the TV though.
I have a strong suspicion that it has something to do with Samsungs server though since it is their updates that seem to kick it to life, albeit just for a couple days.
