Hello, what can be the problem? TV can see router but can not connect. Other wireless devices can connect to router.

TV can only connect if wifi security is disabled. Do I need a new router? I have the latest routertech firmware.

Why do you think it will work with a new router? I think you need to find out what is wrong with the TV.

I read in another forum that a user had the same problem. These samsung TVs are having issues with some older routers. So the problem is on TV side. My mobile phones hotspot works with it. I wonder if there is a setting in router causing these issue. Thank you.

Well, you have to try every form of encryption that is supported by both router and TV. If none of them works, then you're out of luck.
