How to connect Smart TV to the Internet by WiFi, without WiFi and by cable?

connect Smart TV to the Internet by WiFi

I am going to explain the different ways to connect Smart TV to the Internet, whether or not it has Wi-Fi integrated.

If yours is new then surely it has it, if it is something older or of a lower range it surely does not have it.

But don’t worry, there is a solution for everything.

Although the ideal is that the one you choose already has it integrated to save you problems.

Connect Smart TV to the Internet with WiFi

I explain how to connect your Smart TV to the Internet by Wifi and although it is easy, this already depends on the person who is going to do it.

First of all I will tell you that there is nothing better than a cable Internet connection. Better speed, stability, no cuts, etc.

But if the router catches you far away you will have no choice but to connect it wirelessly and it is the same as when connecting your smartphone or computer.

I leave you as it is done in the televisions of the best known brands and beware, it may vary depending on the version of the software.

  • Go to Network and then select Network Settings.
  • Choose Wireless connection.
  • Find your WIFI network and choose it.

If you do not know what your WIFI is, go to your router and look below that there is a sticker with the name of the ESSID or WIFI network.

There is also the password that you have to enter and it is the one that you have to put on your Smart TV. Be careful, if someone has changed it, you will have to ask them.

Be very careful not to make mistakes with uppercase, lowercase, confuse the uppercase “o” with zero and other possible confusion.

Connect Smart TV to the Internet without Wifi

If your Smart TV does not have WIFI we have several options, including connecting it by cable.

For me of course it is much better, but as I have said before, it depends on whether you find the router nearby.

Let’s first see how to give your TV a wireless connection.\

Add the Wifi with original adapter

We can give the wireless function to your Smart TV through different options and one would be the WIFI adapter that different brands sell separately.

It would be like a pendrive that connects to a USB port, but something bigger and with the WIFI function.

For this adapter to work, your Smart TV has to be Wifi Ready. Bone ready for Wifi. Quiet that most of the Smart TV without WIFI are.

I recommend that you look in the instructions of your television for the name of the adapter that is compatible. Or in the specifications of the adapter, the model of your Smart TV must be included.

Use a WIFI extender or repeater

I suppose you already know that a WIFI repeater or extender and if I do not tell you that it is a device that serves to extend the WIFI signal where it does not reach you. But what not many people know is that this repeater has a network cable connection or RJ45 that provides cable Internet signal.

It means that if you buy this device and connect it to your home’s WIFI network, you can give Internet to your TV from a cable from it to your Smart TV.

The advantage of this is that you make an investment of money in a device that in addition to improving the WIFI connection of your home, in the future you can use in others.

I bought this one a few months ago to give Internet to an Xbox and it works like a charm.

Connect Smart TV to the Internet via cable

The wired connection is always the safest, fastest and most stable. The only downside is that if you don’t have the router nearby, it’s a bummer.

For this you need a network cable or RJ45 and you probably have one at home, although I recommend a quality one like the one I link to you.

Once you have the cable connected to both the Smart TV and the router, your section may connect automatically, so you won’t have to do anything.

In the event that it does not connect, follow the same instructions as if it were through WIFI, but choose wired connection instead of wireless and it will connect itself.

Use a PLC if the router is far away

In the event that your Smart TV does not have WIFI and you also take the router away or on another floor, with which the signal arrives regularly, there is another option and that is to use a PLC.

With the PLC TP Link you can take the Internet signal from the router to the Smart TV through the electrical cable.

For it:

  • Unplug the router, plug in the PLC and this is the router (to save a plug).
  • Connect a network or RJ45 cable from the router to the PLC.
  • Unplug the Smart TV, plug in the other PLC and this is the Smart TV.
  • Connect a network cable from the Smart TV to the PLC.
  • Follow the instructions to connect it to the Internet via cable.
  • You will already have Internet on your Smart TV.

Share your mobile Internet with your Smart TV

If there is no Internet of any kind where you are, there is an option to be able to enjoy the Internet and that is to share the Internet on your mobile with your Smart TV.

To do it from Android:

  • Go to the Settings of your mobile.
  • In the More option, enter anchoring to WIFI NETWORK.
  • Go to Portable WIFI Zone.
  • Make a note of the name and password or change them if you want.
  • Activate the Portable WIFI Zone.
  • Follow the instructions of the Smart TV and search for your portable WIFI network.
  • Ready, you already have Internet, but be careful with the data rate and control data consumption at all times.

Are you going to connect your Smart TV to the Internet now?

I think I have explained all the ways to connect Smart TV to the Internet or at least the ones that I know today.

For color tastes and that each one takes the option that he likes or interests the most.

If the router is next to it, I recommend using the cable because there is nothing more robust than a wired connection.
