It has come to our attention that when using certain Wireless Access Point devices the WPA2 Personal security mode will not connect wirelessly to the TV. To resolve the connection issue, change the security mode to WPA2 Personal Mixed or WPA.

If you are unable to change the security type on the wireless access point you can still connect with the TV using manual entry mode:

IMPORTANT: Some of the following steps will require that you know what the specific settings were when the router was set up. If you do not remember these settings, refer to the manual supplied with the Wireless Access Point device for model-specific information or contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for further assitance.
