Samsung TV check dns settings


Novice Member
Hi guys

I was wondering if any of you had an answer to this or soming I could try

I bought a samsung UE32F4510 smart tv last week and connected it to the internet, it works really well, fantastic tele for the bedroom but when it comes to watching on demand I seem to get half way through a program and the internet drops out.

I go to the network status and it shows wireless network connected but not to the internet - check dns settings in IP settings or contact your internet service provider.

If I turn the tele off then straight back on again it connects and I might get another 5 mins or a couple of hours before it does it again,

I have laptops androids phones and an xbox all connected wirelessly to the router and never have this problem with them.

I'm using the latest bt infinity router receiving around 30mbps download speeds, So far i have

Turned the 2.4Ghz off so everything runs though 5Ghz
Turned 5 off so it all runs through 2.4ghz
set the TVs ip address as static
changed the DNS to googles

But as yet it still keeps dropping

Problem i get after 10/15 minutes of watching on demand
When its working ok
IP settings
how its connected to the router
description of the tele in the router
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

I gave up on Samsung's WiFi and use an Ethernet cable for both my Samsung TVs. Samsung just can't do WiFi it seems.

Ye mate after a couple of weeks messing with the wifi I managed to get it working for a couple of days without a problem, but I didn't trust it would continue to work,

I had a couple of home plugs so i used them as the tele and the router are in different rooms and it's been perfect ever since.
