Connecting Your TV To Wi-Fi With Mouse And Keyboard
This is one of the easiest ways to connect your TV to Wi-Fi without a remote controller. You need a wired Mouse and a wired Keyboard to do this. Here is a step-to-step guide that might help you.
Connect your Mouse and/or Keyboard through the USB Ports on your TV. You can find them either on the back or on the side of your TV on most Smart TVs.
Once plugged in, they should be working on your TV.
Press the Windows Key on your keyboard and a menu should pop up. This might differ depending on the brand of your smart tv. If it does not pop up, try using your mouse to navigate to the settings option like you would with your TV remote.
If the Keyboard method works and you see a menu, go to Settings and click on it using your Mouse.
In Settings, go to the Network Category (Might be named differently for different brands, but just go to your network settings, like “Network and Internet” or just something like that.)
Once in the Network Settings, Select the “Wifi” option and set up your WiFi connection.
Doing this should connect your SmartTV to WiFi without needing a remote controller.
Using An Ethernet Cable
