Wireless Network Precautions

• This Smart TV supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g /n communication protocols. Samsung recommends using IEEE
802.11n. Otherwise when you play video over a network connection, the video may not play smoothly.
• To use a wireless network, the TV must be connected to a wireless router or modem. If the wireless router
supports DHCP, the TV can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless network.
• Select a channel that is not currently in use for the wireless router. If the channel set for the wireless router is
currently being used by another device, the result is usually interference and/or a communications failure.
• Most wireless networks have an optional security system. To enable a wireless network's security system, you
need to create a security key using characters and numbers. This security key is then needed to connect to the
wireless network.

Network Security Protocols

The TV only supports the following wireless network security protocols and is unable to connect to non-certified
wireless routers:
• Authentication Modes: WEP, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
• Encryption Types: WEP, TKIP, AES
If the wireless router has been set to Pure High-throughput (Greenfield) 802.11n mode and the Encryption Type to
WEP or TKIP, Samsung Smart TVs will not support the connection in compliance with the new Wi-Fi certification
If the wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), it is possible to connect to the network using PBC (Push
Button Configuration) or a PIN (Personal Identification Number). WPS automatically configures the SSID and WPA key
