I second what Sam says. Wireless is a pain with a Smart TV. When I switched ISPs, they put my new modem/router/access point in the basement, which is where my Smart TV is. Direct plug to the TV is far more stable than wireless, especially if you use your TV to stream Netflix (which I do). If your router is too far away from your TV, consider a powerline ethernet connection, which is also more stable than wireless.

This is just FYI but I just felt people should know about what the LG smart tv does with or without your knowledge.  LG may or may not be the only one, but the LG smart tv keeps track of every show you watch, how long you watch it, how often you change channels and it sends this information to a server.  It is funny because I don't think LG tells you about this upfront.
