Firmware updates make no difference on mine. It will lose connections after a day or so and won't connect until I soft reset with the power button on the remote. Same ever since my tv was new with firmware 1142...

I have tried smart hub resetting in the past to fix the YouTube logging out issue, which never worked because it was a firmware issue. I've never heard of a country code reset. I'd rather not reset the smart hub again because of how long it takes me to reset all my settings.
At the moment I've changed the d.n.s. from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 following some advice I found from a forum a year ago that they said resolved their issue.
I did the Smart Hub reset and have the DNS set at 18.104.22.168 (Google), you have to set it and unplug the set for a minute or so to get the changed DNS to stick, and am still having Youtube login, VUDU network and streaming issues from a wired connection. Just updated to FWv1167 and no joy. There are issues that need to be addressed by Samsung.

Unno if you were replying to me, but tv is roughly 3 feet from router.
Since changing the DNS from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, I haven't had the original issue happen again, I'll give it another week before I'm confident enough to mark this as solved.

When I had problems they had me set the DNS to 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206, both Google, not sure they appreciate their use. I surmise that it's getting pretty crowded there. I had to pull the power on the set for a minute to get the DNS to lock in. But things have worked since. Now why can't it work with regular proper DNS's? I've been using them for ages to test connections on networks.

Wanted to give an update since it's been a week since I changed the DNS to 220.127.116.11. Still haven't had an issue.
For the heck of it I tried to switch back to Auto Obtain and it worked. Kinda. Some stuff worked and others didn't on the TV. All the rest of my gear, media included, works great on my ISP DNS's. Upon switching back to 18.104.22.168, which is the lesser known and used of the two in the wild, I trust is getting very crowed, because tons of companies tell people to use these DNS's, still some stuff worked and others didn't. Thus, my first switch. Samsung needs to isolate this and fix the ability to use DNS's related to your Internet service. It's gonna get crowded up there. When I get bored tonight, I'll try other direct DNS's for my personal service and see what happens.
