You can use these steps.

  1. Using your remote, go to your TV’s menu.

To know if your TV is connected to Wi-Fi, the signal strength and the transmission fields will be blank, or you will see dashes.

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Click the enter button on your remote. Your device will begin scanning for available 2 and 5GHz bandwidths.
  2. When the TV finishes scanning, you will see all available SSIDs.
  3. Choose your preferred SSID using the remote’s up or down button.
  4. Enter the password for the network you selected using the screen keyboard that will appear.

Step #5: Finish the Set-up

To do this, follow these steps:

  1. If the password you provided is correct, click the Done link.
  2. Press the Enter button on your remote. 
  3. The screen closes then another one appears with password spaces filled with stars. So, you have entered the password successfully.
  4. Click next on your screen, then press enter.

You will see a wireless connection appearing on your screen. It will show your SSID, security type, and key you entered when you started the connection.

If you aren’t sure about the password, you can re-enter it by pressing the return button.

Your device will start rescanning to check the available Wi-Fi networks. You will see the option to re-enter the password; kindly provide the correct password, then press enter.
