TV Model Code: UN50NU6900
Router: Netgear MR814 v2
Just received a new SmartTV, on network connections it is able to pick up my SSID and Signal Strength bar (at full). After I enter the router passcode, I get stuck on "unable to automatically assign an IP address". My router DHCP mode is client (automatic). Even if I try to manually assign an IP, the connection errors out. Is there a compatibility issue or is something defective? I did update the firmware with an USB stick to 1271.
I connected the cable directly to the TV and got internet access. Googling around it implies MAC filtering? I added the MAC address of the TV to my router and the problem still persists.
Also tried only manually entering the DNS address to 126.96.36.199
You may need to cold boot the TV in order to fix this symptom. This can be done by holding the power button on the remote until the TV turns off and back on (about 5 seconds). Also, are you located in the US?
