3. How To Connect Hisense TV To WiFi Using A Wired Connection (Ethernet Cable)

This connection process will only work on a Hisense TV that has a LAN (Ethernet) port. Also, you’ll need the Hisense RemoteNow app.

This process will also require that you bypass the wireless network issue by connecting an Ethernet cable from your router to the TV’s LAN port.

Below are the steps to follow:

  • Connect an Ethernet cable from your router’s LAN port to the LAN port on your TV.
  • Turn on your TV using the power button on the bottom of your TV. Note that since you’re using a wired connection, your TV will already be connected to your home network, so, you won’t have to input any passwords.
  • Connect your phone to this same WiFi network.
  • Then, download and install the RemoteNow app on your mobile device (iOS/Android). Since your TV and your phone are now on the same network, you can use the app to navigate through the settings.
  • Proceed to pair your RemoteNow app with your TV and use it to navigate through settings.
  • Select ‘network’, and then click on ‘network configuration’.
  • Refresh the list of available networks and search for your network. Once you find it, click on it using the RemoteNow app.
  • Enter your password, and click on ‘connect’. When you get a prompt that your TV is connected to Wi-Fi, you can unplug the Ethernet cable.

When trying to connect the TV to WiFi again in the future, your TV will remember the network name and password and will automatically connect to it when you turn it on. So, you won’t need to use the Ethernet cable next time. All you have to do is turn on your TV, go to the RemoteNow app, and use the app instead of your remote.
