I have a Samsung SmartTV (UE40D5700) and I want to connect it to the internet. Since it has no built-in WiFi, the only commercial option Samsung gives is to buy their own wifi bundle (70$) (no other WiFi USB works).
I have a D-Link Access Point which works as client mode and the internet works fine. The problem comes when I try to use DLNA/NAS software to stream media to my TV or even using the offical Samsung remote iPhone app: the TV is visible in the network for a while and then it disappears and I have to set up the connection again (TV) to make it visible, which is quite annoying, specially if you're streaming a movie or music to your TV.
I had a TP-Link router unused so I decided to install DD-WRT and use it as a Client Bridge. This works fine, my TV has connection to the internet with no problem at all, but now it is even worse: It is not visible at all, not even for a while.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong – but I certainly know that there must be a configuration problem in the router somehow.
Does anyone have a clue?
