IP address - can’t connect tv to WIFI

Hey! 

we set up our broadband yesterday and all is working fine on our phones and laptops. 
However I tried to connect our TV to the WIFI and it’s come up with the below message on my tv…

“IP auto setting failed. Try the following to set up the IP automatically or set up the IP manually by selecting settings. Ensure that the DHCP server is enabled on the wireless network, then unplug and plug the wireless network back in again” 

 

Any ideas what I need to do? 

Many thanks! 
Jess

Do other WiFi devices work?

Re: IP address - can’t connect tv to WIFI

If your WiFi is working you can try a reset of your TV. Doing this varies by make and model, but mine requires the following to be done.

• Switch the TV OFF
• Unplug all cables and accessories from the TV
• Wait for at least one minute before plugging all cables in again
