Re: Why does smart tv lose internet connection after shutdown?

[ Edited ]

I also encounter this problem tv lose internet connection after shutdown... My KDL-32W674A is doing fine in Internet using Wi-Fi. But when I upgraded the System Software on Jan. 5, 2014 from PKG3.901GAA to latest Version PKG4.001GAA the internet connection got ruin, I having alot of problem in the connection since I upgraded the software version.

 

My KDL-32W674A internet connection now is better and stable, after a series of monitoring using the new firmware PKG4.001GAA.

1. reset my moderm/router - issues still the same
2. reset my dlink router - issues still the same
3. I call my ISP (internet service provider) and I ask them to Reset (refresh) my internet connection in their Server. --- FINALLY MY KDL-32W674A GOT A DECENT AND STABLE CONNECTION.

 

I thought that the new firmware update or code has not compatible in my internet connection. So I called my ISP to request that I want to reset my internet Connection in their server.

 

After they reset my connection in their server, my Internet TV got a decent connection now, and even if I connect my laptop to download some movies. while my TV connected to my Wi-Fi i got a decent and normal connection now.

My Router Wi-Fi is in the 2nd floor, and the TV is in the 1st floor.
Connection Speed: 2mbps

 

Call your ISP and tell them that you want to Reset your internet connection in their SERVER.

Re: Why does smart tv lose internet connection after shutdown?

My TV (purchased January 2014) drops the internet connection sometimes after being turned off and on again but more annoyingly it drops the WiFi and Ethernet connection mid-use.

I have updated the tv every time when prompted to do so, I had already manually set a static IP address (so as not to use one assigned by DHCP) and provisioned my router to play nice.

So whether I'm using the internet browser, streaming from a DLNA server on my local network, ABC iView, YouTube or whatnot, mid-video (ie while I'm using it) the TV drops the connection and is a royal pain to get working again.

Also streaming internet content (through ABC iView) skips forward to the next video at random so not dropping the internet availability but is still annoying having to go back and fast forward to the point of the video I was watching. It did that while it was connected via Ethernet as well as all the time on wifi. Wifi is the much preferred method to connect because there is no Ethernet connection available remotely close to either this Sony Bravia of which I speak and nor the non-wireless Bravia that's a few years older now.

Model: KDL-55w800a
Software: PKGA.470GAA

Re: Why does smart tv lose internet connection after shutdown?

I'm not sure why my reply was accepted as a solution, none of those things appear to have worked. Mind you I have not noticed it playing up as much as of late but saying that I have my Apple TV plugged in currently but it still forces me to stuff around trying to get the TV to recognise it's actually connected to WiFi just like it says it is to allow access to the internet features after turning on from time to time.
