TV Problem or Internet Problem?

Would put me off buying any lg products.
Agree to a point ,

Ethernet port is the only issue on an otherwise excellent TV , and dont really want to face the panel lottery when I have a good one albeit with a dodgy ethernet port , and that seems to be a software bug in any case , as its intermittent and a latch , you can reset it and it will work for a while.

In any case , the workaround is far better , its gigabit and I can stream lossless UHD rips directly to the TV over ethernet which is something a 100mbps port cannot do.

So in this case , even if the original issue is fixed with an update ( I wouldn't hold my breath waiting ! ) it still wont be as good as the workaround, so ...... not so bad really ....

The OP is having exactly the same problems as we have with our Sony AF8 OLED.
We lose the internet at least 12 times a day. ETHERNET NOT CONNECTED!

We have fast fiber internet 200Mbps. The dropouts occur only ever on YouTube.
The PC alongside can happily play YT when the TV is showing No Connection.
We are almost convinced it is a fault with the countless YT adverts we suffer.
Often two compusory adverts per video watched. With no option to skip.

We are cable connected to the TV but have tried changing to Wireless with no improvement.

The TV takes ages to wake up even from standby. Then shows a black screen until we hit Home.
When we have a dropout and change to Netflix it will usually reconnect.
Then we can change back to YT. Which we watch quite a lot.

Have you tried disabling ipv6 on your router?

Thanks for the suggestion. I shall see if that helps.
It is ages since I accessed the router.
Fortunately there is loads of advice online.

EDIT:I disabled ipv6 by clearing the enable box.
The router needs to be rebooted but not in the middle of TV watching.
I'll report back after the reboot.
