05/03/18, I bought my 39" INSIGNIA Roku TV. For a few months now, it has started losing internet connection at least once a day. My wifi connection has not changed. All other devices in my home work perfectly fine. When I google this issues, it seems to be a VERY common issue for people who have purchased this tv. This was a large purchase for myself, and I really can't believe it has issues. Is there anything I can do to get this fixed (for free) or replaced? Do you have any suggestions on what I can do from my home to fix this? (Please dont say my wifi is too weak or not plugged in or any other wifi issue.. this is 100% the tv's connectivity.) I can't imagine buying a new tv after only less than one year of use. It is just heartbreaking to me.

Their is a possible software update needed to install. Check your current version and write it down.
Perform a power cycle on both the tv and your router by unplugging completely from the power source.
Reboot the router first and once ready then get tv back on.
This should connect automatically otherwise you can manually re-establish the connection from the network settings.
Once done, go back and check for and update to the latest software.
Please update if this resolves the issue.

I did as you suggested with fingers crossed.
The software version was the same before and after the power cycle in both the TV and router. This did not fix the problem, TV lost connection this afternoon. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Did you connect and then lose connection or never connected at all?
