Resolved Question:

Thank you Joy
I do not know what you have been doing with the trouble shooting so want to start everything over again please by resetting.
First, to reset the router, on the back of the router is a reset button. Hold this in (you will need a paperclip) and push the reset button in for 10 seconds, then release.
Once done, then on the TV,
Display the menu and select [Setup]
Setup
select
access
2 Select [System Menu]
System Menu Access
select
access
3 Select [Shipping Condition]
Let the TV reset and when it has go through the setup procedure and part of this is connecting to the wifi network.
Tell me if it then connects and functions please Joy.
