Internet frequently drops out when I turn on smart TV

DZ0126

Hi, I've noticed lately that once I turn on my smart TV, the internet will frequently disconnect and reconnect (about every 10 mins), whether I connect via cable or wifi. 

The internet is fine if I don't turn on TV.

Does anyone know how to fix the problem?

strange, might need to do more troubleshooting. Is the ip address on the tv DHCP or static? there might be an IP address conflict .

 

Maybe wipe the internet setting on the tv and run the network connection again on the tv.

Sounds like an IP conflict as @SillyGogo suggests (two devices with the same network address). Perhaps hardcode your TV address under network settings to something else?
