Are you having problems connecting your LG TV with WiFi because your TV remote control is damaged or not working? Without your LG TV remote control, it should be difficult to connect to Wi-Fi.
But don’t worry – it’s a bit of a challenge, but not impossible, and there are ways to connect your LG TV to a Wi-Fi network without your remote.
I will explain to you how you can connect your TV to wifi without the remote controller in this guide.
I will not recommend installing the LG Smartify app, since that requires you to have your TV connected to a WiFi network.
Therefore, in this case, there are only two ways to get internet on your LG TV in case you don’t have its Remote Control.
The first one is by connecting a USB mouse or keyboard and then connecting the TV manually to Wifi, and the second one is by using an Ethernet cable.
All you need is a USB mouse and the USB port of your TV. Simply plug the mouse into your television’s USB port, and hold the center button on the underside of the TV, located directly below the LG logo. This will then cycle through until it finds your mouse.

Steps To Connect LG TV To Wifi Without Using The Remote
The first thing we need is a USB Mouse or Keyboard. We will use the Mouse, as it will be easier to navigate the options using the mouse rather than the keyboard.
You can also use the USB Keyboard in the same manner if you wish to.
So here are the steps to connect to WiFi using the USB mouse
- To activate the USB Mouse, connect it to the USB port of the TV and press the center button below the LG logo to switch between inputs.
- Click on “Live TV” after that and wait for the menu to close.
- Click on “Recommended” all the way down on the right side of the TV screen.
- Click “Yes” when “Network Disconnected” appears.
- A window will appear with your network settings. Enter your WiFi network details and you will be able to log in!
With the steps above, you will be able to connect your LG Smart TV to wireless internet without using Remote control. Further, You can continue to use it by installing the LG Remote control application on your Smartphone.
How would you connect your LG Smart TV to the Internet if you do not have a Remote, and nor a USB Mouse or Keyboard? Below I have covered that topic as well, so let’s take a look.
How To Connect LG Smart TV To Internet Without Remote?
Now that you know about the USB Mouse and Keyboard option I mentioned above.
To access the Internet, we are going to use an Ethernet cable to connect LG TV directly to the router’s Ethernet port.
Obviously, you’ll need to make sure your LG TV has a LAN ethernet port first.
In that case, connect one end of your Ethernet cord to the TV and the other end to an empty LAN port on the router’s back.
When you do this, your LG TV should automatically connect to the internet. If it doesn’t, you can unplug your TV for 60 seconds or so, and then plug it back in.
By doing this, You should now see your LAN internet connection recognized on the TV.
Once this is completed, you can connect your LG TV to the internet and start using it. You can also install the LG Smartify app to pair your LG TV with it and control it further.
I hope with the above steps you will be able to get your LG TV connected to Wifi and Internet without the Remote.
In the event you lose or break your LG remote but still want to connect your TV to WiFi, you can use a USB mouse.
After connecting your wireless mouse to your LG TV, you will be prompted to enter your WiFi network and password details while establishing the Wifi connection.
Aside from that, if you don’t have a USB mouse, you can try connecting your LG TV directly to your router via an Ethernet cable.
As a result, once you have established an internet connection this way, the LG TV Remote app will again need to be used as your remote for the time being.
I hope you have been able to connect your LG Smart TV to Wifi without using the Remote.
