Every Smart TV has WiFi support by default. But sometimes, you may experience connectivity issues while using WiFi. Likewise, JVC Smart TV has trouble connecting to the WiFi network sometimes due to some errors. You can fix these errors by following some of the troubleshooting methods available for Smart TVs.
Reason for JVC Smart TV Not Connecting to WiFi
There are some common cases where you have WiFi connectivity issues. Some of the common cases are,
Weak WiFi Strength: The WiFi network you are connecting to may not have enough strength. For a long-range connection, you can use the 2.4 GHz network, but it will provide a slower speed. For a short-range connection, you can use the 5 GHz network to get high-speed data.
Router Problem: If the router you use is too old, it may have some performance issues. In this case, you need to buy a new router or repair the existing router.
TV Problem: The JVC Smart TV might have software issues. If you are using the older firmware on your JVC Smart TV, this type of issue will occur.

Place the Router Near Your TV
A WiFi router must be placed in the central spot of the house where everyone can access it in every room. Additionally, if your WiFi router is far from your TV or has many obstacles, it will reduce WiFi strength. This weak WiFi signal may cause your TV to not connect to the WiFi. So, we recommend you place the WiFi router around 5 to 6 feet around the TV for a better connection.
Connect JVC Smart TV to WiFi Using Ethernet Cable
If your JVC TV is not connecting and not performing well with a wireless WiFi connection, then you can connect it using a wired Ethernet cable.
By plugging one end of the Ethernet cable into the back of the TV and the other one into the router, you can connect the TV to the internet. With a wired connection, there will be no network lag and you can get a strong internet connection.
