Hi sh123 and welcome
Do you have a wifi enabled laptop?
If so download inSSIDer - http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/ - and run it next to the TV.
Check the signal strength and also check if any other hubs/routers are also on the same channel.
If there are any, move your wireless channel to a free or less congested channel - done via the hub manager
See if the TV now works....

You could change the wireless interface to 802.11b/g (This should make the connection more stable) with it based on channel 4 or 7 which are usually the least congested ones.
You might find the Hub 3 a good investment at £47 if you want to buy outright or free if you recontract to BT Broadband for 12 months or more, I have the Hub 3 and it has the best wireless range of any router I have used before and it saves all of the hassle of faffing around with channel selection/ transmission speeds as it does it all automatically and monitors 24/7.
