Trying to link my Samsung 7 series to WI FI from Apple Time capsule. Panasonic in lounge OK. Sony in kitchen OK, iPads link when in family room but not the samsung. In auto it gets the MAC address and IP address but nothing more.
It's the 55 inch Series 7 UHDTV, the 4K version.
It's about 25 yes from Router and Apple Time Capsule.Since sending my question, the TV has now found the network with Automatic accessing of IP address etc. But now gives following message. "connected to local network but cannot connect to internet. Check the DNS settings in IP Settings or contact your ISP.
I don't know how to find another DNS number.
Like you, I think, I suspect the TV is too far from Apple Time Capsule. Somehow I have to improve the strength of WI FI signal without knocking down two walls between the rooms!!
I believe Powerline has to be on same ring main. Our family room is on one fuse in fuse box while Time Capsule in study is on a separate fuse but in same fuse box. does this mean it's on the same ring main?
