Samsung smart TV internet connectivity issues

I am having difficulty getting my Samsung smart TV to show internet connectivity. I say "show" because it is connecting, but it is showing a red X on the connection icon in the Network Settings submenu. The wireless connection is excellent (modem is 2 ft from the TV) and all other devices in the house have internet connectivity. I can stream Netflix, Vudu, Amazon Instant, etc., but cannot get Pandora to connect as of recently. It has worked in the past, but I went to connect yesterday and it said to check my internet connection. That is when I noticed the red X in the network settings menu. Again, it IS connecting because I can stream other apps, but for some reason it is showing an X and Pandora won't work.

When you set the TV up did it request the WiFi password ?

Yes, it did. Pandora is working today, so it must be something with their server. I haven't checked to see if the red X went away. It's pretty much meaningless because it IS connecting to the internet.

Possibly a little glitch in the setup process. Good that everything is working now.
