Easiest way is to root yourself. Also if your net setup isn't really, really messed tv was NOT "the point of entry". Therefore you should check other stuff...

As I explained above rooting is NOT the problem. Rooting is the solution :) :D
I do NOT support "latest fw" at ALL. If you have one you should block updates on router and wait for it to STOP being "latest":)
If you want me to help you please paste FULL log(s) to "spoiler"/"code" bbcodes or provide link(s) to pasted file(s) on http://ctrlv.it/ Otherwise "NO HELP"!!!
If you want root DISABLE internet access to your device!!!!
DO NOT EVER INSTALL FIRMWARE UPGRADE !!!!
