    Hi, i recently purchased a LG Smart tv and i have had nothing but trouble connecting to netflix. Initially it worked fine for a couple of days then stopped loading. The error message that i get says nw-2-5 and when i check internet connection through netflix it says the following- netflix server 1 ok, netflix server 2 nw -2-5, netflix server 3 nw -2-5 and finally the last one says connected to internet.
    recently my son brought his smart tv round to our house and it worked straight away, then he took mine round to his house and it worked again straight away, when he returned mine and i connected everything back up it worked, but the day after i was back to square one with the same error code.
    BT monitored my line for three days and they say everything ok as do netflix and LG.
    Finally all our other devices ,smart phone and i pads connect without any problems.
    Any help would be very much appreciated

    it may be an intermittent issue - can your son use ot for a few days and see if the problem occurs
    as you say

    are you using wireless or a cable connection to your router?

    What's the exact models of the TV and the router? One or both may need a Firmware update to resolve compatibility or connectivity issues with certain devices.
