skip internet connection check

Post by mcbane » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:47 pm

Hi All,

Is there a lib or some other kind of hack which makes it possible to skip the checking for an internet connection on tv?
Because at the moment my samsung tv says there is no internet connection. The animation shows, that router is reachable but internet not. But this is just a big lie.

I assume the tv is checking some special address or url on samsungs site to determine if internet is working or not. And if this url isn't giving the expected resonse, then the stupid tv refuses to use the rest of the internet, like youtube, which is fine.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, thanks. But just changing the DNS to something local doesn't seem to work. I think it really needs this URL written in the second last post. I'll try some reverse proxy with apache. Let's see.

Well, URL checked by TV for internet connection looks ok:
http://www.samsung.com/global/products/ ... ink/us.xml
It even says "OK" :D

Look at your browsers URL. It immediately changes to https. Maybe this is the issue. Maybe old TV Firmware isn't able to handle this.

My Browser on Laptop is showing the XML content with OK inside.
My TV just says no Internet

Probably because of https as you said. I guess Samsung switched everything to https without thinking of blackout it was going to cause on zillions pre-Tizen TVs. Let the info pass, can only be temporary imho :)
