Wired Router

Network in Smart TV

Here, almost everything is the same as in the previous method. If your provider uses the Dynamic IP connection technology (you can check with support), then just connect the cable to the TV and everything works.

But, if the technology is PPPoE, then it is already a little more complicated. For example, on my LG 32LN575U there is no way to configure such a connection. There is already only one option, install the router and raise the connection on it. And already by cable, or via Wi-Fi to connect the TV.

But, as far as I know, for example, some Samsung TVs can raise a PPPoE connection. See the specifications, check with the manufacturer.

We set static IP and DNS on the TV

It may be necessary to set a static IP and DNS when connecting via LAN (the provider can also use this technology), this can be done. Showing how

Go to Smart TV and select the network icon (you can also through the settings).

Click the Configure Connection button.

Select the Manual Settings button.

The cable must already be connected!

Select the “Wired” button.

Next, set the desired IP and DNS manually. Click Ok.

The TV will build a network map and display the result of an Internet connection. Like this (your card may differ, this is normal):

Click Finish. All wired network with static IP is configured.

The provider makes binding by MAC address. Where to watch MAC on TV?

If your provider is binding on the MAC address, and the Internet is already tied to a computer, for example, then connecting it to the TV will most likely fail. It is necessary that the provider changes the binding to the MAC address of the TV.

In this case, we need to find out the MAC address of our TV. This can usually be done in the settings.
