As a TV connect to the Internet?

Not so long ago, I connected a 16-bit game console to my TV (instead of an ordinary antenna). I did not know that in general such an Internet, and I could not even think that after 10 years it will need to connect the Internet to the TV itself. In addition, it is not necessary on the cable, because now most of the TVs already have built-in Wi-Fi. Yes, technology develops very quickly. Now the TV with Smart TV can even to some degree replace the computer.

I noticed that many users after buying a modern TV immediately ask the Internet connection issue. True, not all this turns out. Why, tell in this article. Consider the main ways with which you can connect the Internet to the TV. I will give an answer to a very popular question: “What to do if there is no Smart TV in the TV”. But you want it to be able to watch YouTube, video via the Internet, set some applications, use the browser and T. D. And also we will try to find out what features the Smart TV function is provided after the TV gets access to the Internet.

If I’m not mistaken, then the first TV with SMART TV and, accordingly, with the possibility of connecting to the worldwide network, I appeared in 2013. It was LG, still with the old system. Now LG has its own OS on all TVs, it is called Webos. A few years ago I bought a Philips TV. It has already installed Android TV, there is a built-in Wi-Fi and LAN-input. On Samsung TVs, some SMART TV system. I did not have such a TV. I am not a strong SMART Specialist TVs, but it seems like LG TVs with your Webos are now best on the market. In terms of convenience, speed, functionality, etc. D. But this is not exactly and today is not about it.

How to connect to Wi-Fi on a TV

If you entered the correct password, the TV will be successfully connected to Wi-Fi. After that, the menu should appear network icon. On LG TVs, you must go to the “Network” tab “Network connection” “Configure Connection”. On devices from different manufacturers, the connection procedure may differ slightly.

The need for Wi-Faya and what can be TV

Television now provides a huge selection of channels, but simply switch them in the search for something interesting quickly boring. Wi-Fi TV connection will give many advantages.

Currently, there are many options for using Wi-Fi compounds with a TV:

What if the TV without Smart TV?

TV without SMART TV to the Internet do not connect. This does not need any meaning. SMART TV function ensures Internet access and all these programs on TV. If there is no SMART TV. no Internet access. Connection to the Internet is just not needed.

If you know for sure that you have a TV without smart. good. If you doubt. check. Here is a detailed instruction: the Smart TV function on the TV: there is or not, how to check?

If there is no SMART TV, then there is no Wi-Fi and LAN?

Not always like this. Explain. If a TV without smart functions, then it definitely does not have built-in Wi-Fi (such TVs, wherever he was, I did not see). I wrote already on this topic, you can read if I wonder if there is Wi-Fi in the TV? How to find out where to see?

But on such a TV can be a LAN-port. Why he need it? It is needed to connect to the local network (not to the Internet!). On the local network there is a DLNA technology, and this TV most likely supports it (see characteristics). I wrote about this in more detail in the article why Lan connector on TV.

Briefly about DLNA: technology that allows you to broadcast on TV video, photo and music from other devices that are connected to one local network. For example: PC and TV are connected to one router. You can withdraw a movie on the TV (not online, and start viewing a file). For example: DLNA server in Windows 10. Configure, with TV.

It happens that the TV with SMART TV, but without Wi-Fi. This means that it can be connected to the Internet only on the cable (or through an external Wi-Fi adapter if it supports them). Or use the way from this article: as a TV without Wi-Fi, connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi.

How to connect the TV to the Internet

To access the Internet, you need to decide what you have a TV model, and whether there is a built-in Wi-Fi module. There are several ways to connect the TV to the Internet:

  • on Wi-Fi network;
  • via network cable;
  • through a router;
  • with the help of a media plan;
  • with PC or laptop;
  • Using the WPS system;
  • Using PLC adapter.

All SMART TVs have built-in modules for a wired connection, so if you have such a TV, you do not have to buy additional devices or wires.

Using Wi-Fi Wireless Network

The use of a wireless network has two weighty advantages, due to which this method is optimal:

  • Enable TV panel and go to “Setting” settings.
  • Further log in to the “Network” tab and select “Network Connection”.

  • In the list find your Wi-Fi, choose it and enter password.

  • In the “Settings” click “Extended Settings”.
  • Further go to the “Network” point and click “Connecting to the Wi-Fi network”.
  • Select your Internet from the list and enter the password.

Through the cable connected to the router

Router allows you to create a local network in the apartment to which you can connect phones, tablets, computer or laptop, as well as TV. To do this, you need to activate the DHCP server function in the settings of the mahruutizer, and then connect the TV panel automatically (all settings will be powered by default). To connect the TV through the router, you must use the network cable and do the following:

  • One end of the wire connect to the router in LAN port.
  • Free end of the cable from the router to stretch to the TV.
  • A window will open, which will report on the installation of the connection. Don’t do anything, it quickly closes.
  • On the TV Remote Control Select “Settings”.

  • Comfortable inteeis;
  • compact form;
  • Many programs to choose from;
  • low cost;
  • Built-in popular custom programs.

  • For 2 minutes quickly press the button on the “WPC” router.
  • A second later, you will have a connection.

Using PLC adapter

PLC adapter is created to expand the existing local network in the house, but it will not be able to connect to the provider directly. Adapter allows without using cables to connect all gadgets to the Internet. It works as follows: the adapter is connected by the wireless method to the Internet and receives a signal from it, and then transfers to devices.

Wi-Fi Router Adapter for Smart TV TV without built-in Wi-Fi Module

Everything is very simple. Almost all modern routers can operate in different modes: amplifier (repeater). Access point, adapter, wireless bridge. In more detail about this, I wrote in the article: Router as a receiver (adapter) Wi-Fi. This scheme works as follows:

  • We buy router. Perhaps you have some kind of old. You can even an inexpensive model. Good and budget options have Totolink and Netis. Other manufacturers are suitable.
  • Nutators in the adapter mode. If this mode is there, the router will receive the Internet from your main Wi-Fi network and transmit it to a TV on a network cable. The same bridge mode is suitable, or network amplifier. True, in this case, the router will still enhance your wireless network.
  • We connect your Smart TV TV with a router via a network cable.
  • Internet on TV works on Wi-Fi.

What is the result: router, or the repeater can be bought in almost every store. Compared to branded Wi-Fi receivers for LG, SAMSUNG and T TV. D. Yes, and it will get cheaper (though, depending on which router you select). Since the price of original adapters is very high.

I wrote about the setting of different operating modes on different routers in the article: which router can take and distribute the Wi-Fi signal (work by repeater). If you have a model of some other manufacturer, then you can search for instructions for setting up through a search on our website. Or ask in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев.

TV connected with Wi-Fi, but no connection to the Internet

A similar “phenomenon” in 99% of cases is associated with the settings of the router and the quality of the Internet provider.

TV has access to the router, but not to the Internet / connection status on TV

In general, I recommend connecting to the same network using a laptop (PC), enter the router settings and check:

  • After, see the Internet access parameters in the router web intees, did they come down (approx. : This data (connection type, password, IP address, etc.) You can find out in a contract with an Internet provider);
