Yup - have the same on my TV - just use the same Id passwords that I use elsewhere. Some apps/tv just have you logon to your account on another device and enter a code that the TV provides - than all logged in

Can I ask a streaming Remote Question here or do I have to start a new post ?
Since your remote control has nothing to do with the Internet and everything to do with the streaming device itself, it would be better asked in the IPTV sub-forum:

As far as getting a new Wifi router can I or will I put in a new username and password in wifi on my tv ?
If you use the same username and password that you used before on your WiFi network you won’t have to change anything on any device. I never have and have had at least 3 routers. If you get a new device - phone, tv, tablet, etc. you will have to log into those apps on that device with whatever password you use for them. Now some routers will have or can have a separate log in to access their settings. But I use the same password for the router as I do for the WiFi network.

Same here. Any time I change wifi routers (as I did just last week), I log into its settings (through a web browser or an app provided by the router manufacturer) and change the name of the wifi network and its password to the same thing I was using on the previous router. This way I don't have to change anything on all the different devices that connect to wifi throughout the house.

Thus extending the opportunities for another couple years to hack your password.

I have to get a new Wifi router from verizon which is the best and newest to get ?
Do you need a router from Verizon or just one that will work with Verizon?

It is important that you tell us which Verizon broadband service you subscribe to.

If you are on Verizon FIOS, the new G3100 - WiFi 6 Modem/Router goes for about $210.

[EDIT:]

Verizon FIOS G3100 Modem/Router - WiFi 6

New from Verizon, (see Link, above), goes for $299.99. [EDIT 2:] As per the documentation at the Link, (above), the G3100 'can' be extended, (IF needed), with an additional G3200 Range Extender for an ADDITIONAL $199.99 from Verizon.

Since you've got the G3100 just 3 weeks ago, I'd have them send out a Technician to check services, the Modem/Router, and connections to and from the Modem/Router. If they determine the unit is bad, (which by your description, it seems to be), they should replace the unit at no charge. (I'd assume there's AT LEAST a 1-Yr Warranty on the unit.)
