Connecting to a Wired Network - TV - Wired Network Setup

Setting up a Wired Network is quite simple. Plug an ethernet cable (see image below), from your modem or router into your TV. The cord is the same on both ends, so it doesn't matter which end goes into which device. Once the cord is hooked up, the router/modem and TV will take care of the rest.

Note: There is a small clip on the bottom of the ethernet connector, this is the only part requiring attention. Squeeze the clip to remove the cord from a device, and make sure the clip is facing the correct direction when inserting it.
