The TV has stopped accessing netflix. Frontier

Customer Question

the TV has stopped accessing netflix. Frontier Communications, my provider, has suggested I remove the netflix app and reinstall it. I don't know how to do either
JA: What's the make and model of your tv, and can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Sharp Aquos 7-8 years old
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Only that my router has a two to three bar signal, but that hasn't changed. I called Frontier and an earlier technician said it was on Frontier's end not mine. Emphatically said that my router was fine.
JA: The TV expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
Customer: cost?

Thanks. Also, how far away from the TV is the router, and have you gone through the basics of rebooting the router, as well as unplugging and plugging back in the TV?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
the router is about 40 ft away and yes i have tried to reboot the router and unplugging and plugging the TV
I get 2 - 3 bars for the strength of signal from the router
Expert:  Aric replied 11 months ago.

Thanks. 40 feet is quite a ways a way and 2-3 bars is not a strong signal in most cases. I know in homes I install in that 2 bars is usually no connection (since Netflix is streaming and requires a strong signal). Anyhow, how many other devices are connected to the router (smart phones, laptops, etc.)?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
three smart phones, two ipads, an iMac and one laptop
the router has worked from this distance for years.
Expert:  Aric replied 11 months ago.

Okay, I'm sorry but something came up and I need to leave, so I will opt out and open the question up to other experts.
