Re: TV WIFI CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING

I am convinced it's not an ISP issue, it's the wifi device in the tv.  Either there is a setting that is incorrect or the device is faulty.

Re: TV WIFI CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING

I'm having the same issue. All other devices on network are fine. I just have to go into network settings and keep accepting what I had filled out before and it will work again for a couple days. Router is an Apple time capsule.

Re: TV WIFI CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING

[ Edited ]

I'm having the same problems with my X50B.  It consistently takes down my entire router when I use a wired connection and less frequently when I'm using wireless but it still does it.  If I disconnect the TV from my network, everything else works fine.

 

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

 

UPDATE: It seems that disabling UPnP on my router fixed the problem.  I'll post back if that changes.

Re: TV WIFI CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING

The symptoms are different. Mine just disconnects randomly, but the router continues to work fine for everything else connected to it.

Re: TV WIFI CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING

I was having problems with wireless disconnecting on my XBR65X900B. Friend suggested I should swap my Apple router for a 5Ghz model, didn't want to spend any bucks so swapped in my old Trendnet N router. Been OK so far. Still want to try a 5Ghz router for the 4K speed. Anyone know of a 5Ghz model that is proven to work good with this TV?

Re: TV WIFI CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING

Yes, you are right, the apple extreme is 2 band. Unfortunantly mine keeps disconnecting from the TV. 2nd one I had, Apple exchanged it once. Still, the TV works ok with the trendnet. I am able to do Amazon and 4K netflix OK as is.

Re: TV WIFI CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING

I have the XBR-65X850B and have the exact same problem.  Video stops at 25% download on Netflix and Amazon.  The reason I know something changed (perhaps the latest firmware update) is that the TV worked perfectly fine with streaming before and nothing has changed in the configuration of the Wi-Fi network.  Also, the TV is out in the open with clear access to signal.  I have an Apple TV box in a hardwood enclosed cabinet below the TV, behind a lot of other items of equipment, and it receives a strong Wi-Fi signal and streams perfectly.

 

I don't think its the network.  I suspect something has changed in the TV, and the fact that the OP stated the video stops at 25% and the TV loses Wi-Fi completely, just like me, I suspect its a more systemic problem with the TV vs. the network.  Was there a recent firmware update that might have messed with the wi-fi?

Re: TV WIFI CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING

I have wifi loss issues as well without a doubt a wifi issue with the TV. Whoever responded with go hard wire and reset to defaults must be from Sony. The TV wifi is broken fix it don't tell people to hardwire TV and reset to defaults, what are you Microsoft. ? Just reboot

Re: TV WIFI CONNECTION KEEPS DROPPING

Some how it has managed for fix itself. (Fingers crossed). Didn't do anything, but it hasn't dropped in over a week now. Maybe it updated itself or something. We'll see. Agree, telling people to hardware because Sony can't make WIFI work is a bit silly. Then again, considering their network hacking issues, doing networking right really isn't their strong point.
