I want you only to give one advice. I have already met on the Internet a few times that in Smart TV, however, on Samsung TVs, a vulnerability was discovered. The data that was injected on the TV could get to the attackers. I now have inserting passwords to different sites, and what is more terrible, payment details.

I hope that now this vulnerability has been repaired. But, do not forget that Smart TV on any TV, this is a new and some more raw technology. So, while it is better not to pay different services through the TV, and do not enter your payment details. For this, it is better to use a computer.

Types of Wi-Fi connection to TV “LG

Thanks to the SMART TV special platform on TVs, simple and fast Internet logs are possible on Wi-Fi.

On a note! All the well-known SMART TV platform, currently implemented in televisions, Blu-Ray players and video game devices, was previously known as “Connected TV”.In essence, televisions that support Smart TV are nothing more than computers in the interpretation of the TV, with one goal. accessible to each Internet access.

Connecting to the local network can be carried out with several ways.

With the router it is possible to connect devices not only with a cable, but also thanks to the wireless network. To configure such connections, it is recommended to use the instructions.

Connection directly using the LAN cable is quite real, but not recommended for such reasons:

  • Wi-Fi access to other devices is limited. However, at the moment, the use of televisions included in which the distribution function of the wireless connection is built.
  • Not all models of these devices have the ability to connect in this way.

On a note! Twisted pair. isolated pairwise twisted conductors. LAN cable, representing 4 such pairs, is actively used in the data network.

Connecting through router

This option suggests the lack of direct connection. TV Thanks to the settings, connect to the network and provide the Internet. Special router settings are not required. Wi-Fi to watch TV use DHCP server. Its activation is carried out in the connection parameters. In the future, the TV will be connected in automatic mode if you configure the wireless network.

LG TV is connected to the router. To do this, a network cable is inserted into the standard LAN port. Supplied cables with a TV or router. short, so long bought separately. One end is connected to the router in a free connector of type LAN, the second. to Ethernet port.

The cable connection ensures the stability of the connection, compared with the wireless. The main disadvantage. the presence of wires in the room. With wireless communication check the quality of the signal to prevent problems with video broadcast.

A window will open on the TV screen confirming the setting of the desired connection. Now the Internet will work. Additional actions are not required.

Unfortunately, I can show how to do it only on TV LG. The process itself, on other popular TVs such as Samsung, Sony, Philips, Toshiba. is not different.

When you first turn on, the TV itself offers to connect to the network, via Wi-Fi, or cable. But I will show how to do it through the settings, because you most likely missed this item when you first turn on. Or in general, the first time included in the store and without you.

Wireless Connection (Wi-Fi)

Look in the user manual, there is a built-in Wi-Fi module in your TV model. If in your model it is missing, you can connect the TV via the Wi-Fi adapter for the USB port LG AN-WF100 (purchased separately). Connect the Wi-Fi adapter to the free USB port of the TV.

Before connecting, you must configure the access point. It is recommended to have no closer than one meter from the TV to avoid interference and conflict with the control panel. If the wireless connection to the network is available for your TV, item will appear on the settings screen: Network Setup: Wireless;.

Select it by clicking OK button on the remote.

In the window that appears, select the desired connection method:

  • Setup from the list of access points (AP);. If you know the name of your home Wi-Fi network and additional parameters.

If your Wi-Fi network is password protected, enter it using the remote control by pressing the red PIN button;.

TV will check the network settings and displays the connection result.

Connection directly, network cable from the provider

Here almost everything is the same as in the previous method. If your provider uses the connection technology “Dynamic IP” (you can clarify with support). then just connect the cable to TV and everything works.

But if PPPoe technology is already a little more difficult here. For example, on my LG 32LN575U there is no way to configure such a connection. There is only one option, install a router and raise the connection on it. And already cable, or on Wi-Fi connect the TV.

But, as far as I know, for example, SAMSUNG TVs are able to raise pppoe connection. See the characteristics, check with the manufacturer.

Specify static IP and DNS on TV

Perhaps when connected to LAN, you will need to set static IP and DNS (the provider can also use this technology). It can be done. Showing how

Go to Smart TV and select the network icon (you can and through the settings).

Select the setting button manually.

Select the “Wired” button.

Next, set the necessary IP and DNS, manually. Click OK.

Click Finish. All, wired network with static IP configured.

The provider makes the MAC address binding. Where to see Mac on TV?

If your provider makes binding on the MAC address, and the Internet is already tied for example to a computer, then you will most likely be connected to the TV. It is necessary that the provider would change the binding on the MAC address of the TV.

In this case, we need to learn the MAC address of our TV. Make it can usually in the settings.
