A lot of you guys are seeing what i am seeing that i making using the in internal apps a challenge. The slow wi fi and center channel drop outs are getting to be a problem.
Here is what i am seeing and tried:
* High end Asus router right next to TV. Tried using the 5Ghz and 2Ghz bands. Initial speeds come in around at 100 to 175 mbps. Try it again later and the speeds drop down to between 2mbps to 8mbps. This is not acceptable for 4k HDR streaming.
* I have tried reboots, reloads of the TV OS, locking my router to a specific channel and the issue stays consistent.
Most likely you can either a) deal with it and it may not bother you b) hardwire into the TV c) Buy a AppleTV, Roku, Chromecast etc.
It bothers me as i see buffering and less than 4k quality. Add in to the fact that as we stream more, you will see this issue.
You can check your speed within the Netflix app (help -- check network) or use the LG web browser and goto to fast.com or speedtest.net.
Personally, I love the TV and i am going the Apple TV hardwire route. LG has supported this TV very well so they may fix this but its not guaranteed.
