Samsung TV

Has anyone managed to connect a Samsung 42" Ue42500 series TV to the Plusnet router?

 

I'm using a TP Powerline Link and Ethernet cable to connect the TV to the router. The TV connects to the router but won't connect beyond that.

 

Am I missing something basic?

Mine (different model no.) connects fine on wired (Powerline) or wireless.
Have you tried seeing if wifi connection connects to the web.?

This may be the reason.

Samsung in their wisdom tried tried using the name localhost across the local network Grin

I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy

Thanks.

 

Just checked. It only looks for a wired network. There's no wireless option.
