Connecting Smart TV to Internet

When trying to connect my recently purchased PanasonicTX-40DS500B smart TV to the router it tells me home network available but connection to internet not possible and IP address not acquired - any suggestions?

Re: Connecting Smart TV to Internet

We've seen in the past that some Panasonic devices don't seem to play ball with the DHCP server so you may need to specify an IP address manually.
Take a look at this post (and the rest of the thread) for details.

Thanks - I will give that a try later and see how it goes.

Re: Connecting Smart TV to Internet

Had the same thing happen with the Amazon Fire TV stick connected to my non-smart television. Resetting it back to factory settings sorted it out - so maybe something along those lines?

WiFi (if that's how you are trying to connect) can as we all know be rather fickle at the best of times.

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.
