Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the exact error or message when entering your wi-fi / wireless network on the TV?

Do you know how to check / confirm your Wi-Fi / wireless password?

What is the model of your Internet modem/router device?

Do you have a laptop / wireless computer that is currently connected via wireless? If so, does it have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, 10, or Mac?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

Was this same TV working fine with this same modem / router device previously?

Have you also tried to disconnect the power cord from the AT&T modem / router device for a few minutes, then re-connect, then wait a bit and check?

Please keep this web page open. When you re-plug the power cord to the internet modem, we will be reconnected. I've also emailed you (from JustAnswer / Viet.) Please disconnect the modem/router device for a few minutes, then reconnect, and check. Please let me know. Thank you.

TV Technician: Viet - TV Tech, Technician replied 2 years ago

When you pulled the cord from the modem, did the internet stop working on this computer? After reconnecting the cord to the modem, please see if you can connect to Wi-Fi on the TV. Please let me know. Thank you.

TV Technician: Viet - TV Tech, Technician replied 2 years ago

When you pulled the cord from the ATT modem, did the internet stop working on the computer?

Was the TV working with Wi-Fi previously or not?

Everything is on a power strip. When I pulled the cord, everything was off. The computer had to restart also.
TV Technician: Viet - TV Tech, Technician replied 2 years ago

Sorry, you should have only pulled the power cord from the modem's end.

Was the TV working with Wi-Fi previously or not?

When you select your network name, does it ask you to enter a password?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The TV has a picture. Still not connected to the internet
TV Technician: Viet - TV Tech, Technician replied 2 years ago

No, I mean, I'm not asking if the TV picture was working or not. I'm asking if the TV was able to connect to Wi-Fi previously or not.

When you select your network name on the TV, does it ask you to enter a password?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it says unable to connect. try another network
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I verified the password ***** it is correct accordint to ATT.
TV Technician: Viet - TV Tech, Technician replied 2 years ago

Was this TV connecting fine to Wi-Fi with this same ATT modem previously? Or was it with another modem?

Is any other wireless device, such as a laptop or tablet or smartphone, currently working fine with your modem / router? (not a device that is connected straight to the modem with a cable)

Please let me know. Thank you.

TV Technician: Viet - TV Tech, Technician replied 2 years ago

Sorry, we guarantee our service, so don't worry. So this TV has never worked on Wi-Fi. Does the computer you are using have windows xp, vista, or 7 or 8 or 10?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Viet - TV Tech, Technician replied 2 years ago

For some TV model, the modem's Wi-Fi setting needs to be adjusted in order make the TV compatible with the modem. Can I connect remotely to your computer, so I can check on the modem directly for you? Please let me know. Thank you.
