Connect your Samsung TV to the internet

Man and women in the living room watching TV

Just when you thought your Smart TV or Odyssey Ark gaming screen couldn't get any smarter, it turns out it can access the internet too. If you connect the TV to Wi-Fi or a wired network, you can download apps, stream your favorite shows, search for information online, and so much more.

Connect to the internet using Wi-Fi

Connecting to Wi-Fi is the easiest and most seamless way to access the internet on your TV. Make sure you have your wireless network name (SSID) and password before trying to connect.

  1. Use the directional pad on your TV's remote to select Settings, select General, and select Network.

  2. Select Open Network Settings, and select the name of your Wi-Fi network.

  3. Enter the network password, if prompted, select Done, and then select OK.

2018 models NU7100/NU710D, NU7200, and NU7300/NU730D only support 2.4 Ghz networks. They will not detect 5 Ghz networks. This will cause your Wi-Fi network to not appear on the list.

Note: If you have any trouble, check out Samsung TV won't find or connect to my Wi-Fi network.

Connect to the internet using a wired network (Ethernet)

  1. Connect an ethernet cable to the LAN port on the One Connect Box or back of the TV, and then connect the other end to your router or modem.

  2. From the Home screen, use the TV remote to navigate to and select Settings, select General, and select Network.

  3. Select OK, and your TV will connect to the internet.

Note: If you have trouble with this process, see our guide for TV does not connect to the internet.
