I have a 47" LG Infinia LE8500 and I have problems connecting it to the internet. I'm using the built-in ethernet jack, and I have a cable running from it all the way to my Actiontec FIOS router. When I try to automatically detect settings, the TV fails the tests and fails to make a connection. If I try to manually add an IP address (from within the DHCP range) it also fails. I'm putting in the correct IP, Gateway, DNS server, etc and it still doesn't connect. I can't seem to find a lot of information about this on the net, but I'm almost thinking that maybe there's something wrong with the TV? I'm considering buying the WiFi adapter for this TV and giving that a shot. Thanks in advance!
The Wifi adapters seem to be much less reliable than a wired connection. When you connect using the ethernet connection it should fire right up. When doing wireless sometime I configure a manual IP to get it going but never with etherent connections. I would try another ethernet cord first. Or even take your connection an plug it into your laptop to see if it works there, Also try unplugging the router for about 30 seconds and trying again. Let me know what happens.
Hey thanks for the reply! Been a while since I've checked back but I'm still more or less having the same problem.
I've tried what you've suggested except for trying another network device off of that ethernet cable. The cable is ran throughout our house into a central router, and everything else connected to that router works except for the TV. I'm going to try to plug my notebook into the TV's assigned cable though to see if it experiences similar issues. I'll report back with my findings
I even had Verizon send me a new router (newer revision), and still the exact same problem. The last thing I want to try is getting a long enough ethernet cable and running it from a DIFFERENT router to the TV to see if it makes a difference.
