router supports DHCP, the TV can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless network.

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, and then enter that key into
the router through its menu. You then must enter this security key into any other devices you want to
connect to the wireless network.
