Samsung not so smart TV and ARP protocol
by mbrooks78 - 1/27/13 11:21 AM
I have a Samsung 55" plasma TV with the Smart Hub installed. The television broadcasts an non-stop stream of ARP packets to my Netgear router asking "who has 192.168.1.1, tell 192.168.1.2"). I am not seeing a response from the router, just more inquiries from the tv. All my other devices get responses from my router with my routers mac address. For some reason, my tv can still access the internet without a problem. I am just trying to figure out why the TV non stops broadcasting address requests and if there is a way to stop it.
