Answer: 
The LG Wireless LAN for Broadband/DLNA Adapter, which is sold separately, allows the TV to connect
to a wireless LAN network.
The network configuration and connection method may vary depending on the equipment in use and
the network environment. Refer to the setup instructions supplied with your access point or wireless
router for detailed connection steps and network settings. You can refer to page 58 of your owner's manual for additional information.

Some portion of the network addresses is not being recognized by the television. Press the MENU button. Select NETWORK. Select Network Setting. Select Wired. Select RESETTING. Select IP AUTO SETTING. Press ENTER on the remote control. Using the Auto Setting option should allow the television to search and find all necessary aspects for your network.
