  • What is this unnamed TV?
  • What is the "netgear" you own? (Is it really one of the "Mobile Routers, Hotspots & Modems"?)
  • How are you connecting the TV? Wired? Wifi?
  • Where are you entering this password?

 

Connecting a TV to the network is usually best done through the TV's controls and set up routine. The router rarely does much more than spit out the wifi signal. It is then down to the TV to do its thing.

 

Where possible, it is usually easier to use a wired connection from the router to the TV. It is easier to set up and less likely to fall over. If you can't run Ethernet cables around the place, you could look into Powerline Ethernet. It turns your mains wiring into an Ethernet circuit.

 

 

Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.

My network DM200 -> MK93; R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> R7000P
