Problems connecting my LG smart TV to my BT homehub 3

Go to solution

OK so my tv picks up the wifi signal, but everytime i put the password in it fails? and yes its the right password.. Ive even turned the network security off and still no connection.

 

I have used my phone as a wifi hotspot and it did connect, so its definatley a problem with connecting to the homehub.

 

Any suggestions?

Welcome to this forum.

 

Why are you bothering with WiFi? It will work much better if you connect it to the home hub using an Ethernet cable or broadband extender?

Wireless is going to really struggle with the bandwidth requirement of a smart TV, and is likely to make other wireless devices run very slow.

Are you plugging the WiFi dongle straight into the back of the TV?

 

My new Linsar TV came with a wireless dongle and a USB extension lead - but no instructions.  After a lot of trial-and-error, I discovered that the WiFi dongle was extremely flaky and unreliable - unless I moved it away from the TV using the extension lead.

 

Until I moved it, the dongle could see the Home Hub's network fine, but it struggled to connect at all and soon lost the connection if it did connect.  Now it seems to connect every time.
