RE: It sounds like a bug or router setup....

I was on a Network Forum about this problem, and there was a guy on there that used to write code for routers and has come across this problem before.

Apparently there are some routers and devices that don't always 'play well' together. And some TV manufacturers have 'strayed from standards' to accommodate different Network devices. He also said there was a lawsuit a while back involving TP-Link, that caused a lot of Manufacturers to start going 'By the Book'

He said, since it is a new TV, Samsung has probably written their code "By the Book", and that may be the problem I am experiencing.

At any rate, I have manually assigned a fixed IP address, so that I have a good work around for the problem.

Most users don't even look at their IP addresses on their network, so the problem is not widely known.
