Why is my Smart TV unable to connect to Wi-Fi router on certain settings?

Why is my Smart TV unable to connect to Wi-Fi router on certain settings?

Samsung Smart TV only supports the following wireless network security protocols and is unable to connect to non-certified wireless routers: 


●     Authentication Modes: WEP, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
●     Encryption Types: WEP, TKIP, AES

If the wireless router has been set to Pure High-throughput (Greenfield) 802.11n mode and the Encryption Type to WEP or TKIP, Samsung SMART TVs will not support the connection in compliance with the Wi-Fi certification specifications. 


If the wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), it is possible to connect to the network using PBC (Push Button Configuration) or PIN (Personal Identification Number). WPS automatically configures the SSID and WPA key settings.
