How To Reset Network Settings On Samsung Smart TV

Connection issues are common to smart TV’s including the Samsung 7 Series. Such issues can be very annoying sometimes as they often occur without apparent reason or cause. But the thing about them is that they’re not really that difficult to fix. 

Estimate Cost : 0

Time Needed : 4 minutes

In fact, you will be able to fix them by simply resetting the TV’s network settings, and that’s what we’re going to show you here. 

Here’s how you do that: 

  1. Press the Home button on the remote.


    It will show you the main menu at the bottom of the screen.

  2. Press the Left button a few times to find Settings and once found, select it.


    It’s the gear icon which can be found at the left-most part of the screen. To select it, you have to highlight the icon and press the OK button at the center of the arrow buttons.

  3. When the menu pops up, select General.


    The menu will be positioned automatically at the center of the screen and it often has a blue background. 

  4. Select Network.


    It will show you more network-related settings on your TV. 

  5. Select Reset Network.


    A small window will then pop up prompting you if you really want to reset the network settings. 

  6. Select Reset and the network reset will then proceed.


    It will take just a few seconds for your Samsung Smart TV to finish resetting its network settings. 

  7. When the reset is finished, select Network Settings.


    This will bring you to the screen where you can have your TV reconnect to the network. 

  8. Select a Network Type.


    If your TV isn’t connected to your router physically through a cable, then select Wireless. 

  9. Select the Network you want to connect to.


    It’s better to connect to a 5GHz network as the connection is more stable and fast. 

  10. Enter the network password.


    You’ll have to do it manually through the remote unless you have a keyboard connected to your TV. 

  11. Once you’re done entering the password, select Done.


    You will then have to wait a little as your TV tries to connect to the network. 

Tools
  • Netflix
Materials
  • Samsung 7 Series

But once it has established a connection, then you can continue using your Samsung TV and stream your favorite shows on Netflix or Apple TV. 

So basically, resetting the network settings on your Samsung TV will delete all its existing network connections and Bluetooth pairings. It will also fix most of the network-related issues you might be experiencing. 

We hope this guide can help you.
