Hello.

 

Ive got a Viera wifi/smart TV. (dont ask me the version number, as it took me 20 minutes just to find the brand name - Viera)

 


Spark modem HG659b

 


Anyway, my TV can connect to my wifi network, & get things like Netflix etc..

 

.

 

The problem is, that every few days or every day (I forget to take note), i have to spend 10-20 minutes to RE-CONNECT to the network.

 

Is there a way either via the TV or the modem - to remember the settings & as soon as the TV is turned on, it auto-connects to the wifi & if i do want Netflix, I do not need to go through the process of QUICK SETUP - NETWORK CONNECTION (the wording on the tv) each day.

Assign the TV a static IP address rather than relying on DHCP. Test.
