How to connect via a router?
This is the most optimal way of all. In newer modern LG TVs with Smart TV, the Wi-Fi module is usually already integrated. The main plus of this option is the wireless connection. It is carried out through a Wi-Fi router.

If you have a laptop or computer, then you have to choose one device on which the Internet will be stable. If you connect a TV via cable, you will have to make an access point out of it.
If you nevertheless chose this method, then the connection instructions are as follows:
