With a Smart TV, you can connect your television to the internet, you can share wifi network, you can play online video games, and you can even connect your social media accounts.

But before you start enjoying all these benefits, you must learn how to connect your Smary TV to the internet. So this post covers ways to connect your TV to the internet. Read on!

First, I will like to congratulate you on the purchase of your first Smart TV. Now it's time to connect it online so that you can enjoy streaming videos on Netflix and similar services.

There are two key ways to connect your Smart TV to the internet. One is via a wireless connection, while the other is via a wired connection.

To use a wireless connection, your Smart TV should support WiFi technology. One of the key advantages of wireless connection is that, you don't need to use cables here. So it's a more neat and better option. It will require a hotspot. You can use a router, a mi-fi, or even the hotspot feature on your smartphone or tablet to share internet with your Smart TV.
If you are using your smartphone, make sure you have a reliable 4G connection or else you must be prepared to endure a lot of buffering and stuttering while using your TV.

Here are the steps to connect your Smart TV to the internet via Wi-Fi. Note that depending on your Smart TV’s brand, the exact name and process may be slightly different, but will fit within these steps:
  1. Turn on your router/Wi-Fi/smartphone hotspot
  2. Press the Menu (or Smart) button on your Smart TV’s remote
  3. Select Network and then Network Settings
  4. Your Smart TV Should attempt to connect to a wireless network. If it doesn’t find one, it will attempt to connect to your Wi-Fi. If it does, skip the next step.
  5. Select Set up a wireless connection
  6. Select your Wi-Fi wireless network name from the list of available hotspots
  7. Type your Wi-Fi password using your remote’s keypad.
Your Smart TV should now be connected to your Wi-Fi and is internet-connected.

Method 2. USING A WIRED CONNECTIONWith a wired connection, you will need a LAN or Ethernet cable, with which you will connect your Smart TV to your router. The benefits of wired over wireless include faster Internet speeds and less interruptions.
Here is what to do:
  1. Find the LAN or Ethernet port on the back of your Smart TV (see the diagram below)
  2. Plug the cable into the LAN/Ethernet port on your TV and then plug it into your router as well.
  3. Select the Menu or Smart button on your TV’s remote
  4. Select Network and then Network Settings
  5. Your Smart TV Should attempt to connect to a wireless network. If it doesn’t find one, it will attempt to connect to your Wi-Fi. If it does not attempt any connection, skip this step.
Select the option to enable wired internet and click Start Connection

Your Smart TV will automatically connect to your wired network and it is online.
