Got a new router which my Samsung Series 9 tv won't connect to. It had previously connected to other wifi sources, and other devices can connect to new router. Any ideas?

Solution found - apparently Samsung TVs have an issue connecting to routers with long (more than 15 characters) names.

Changed the router name and now works
