How To Connect My Insignia Tv To Wifi Without Remote

Step 1: Turn on your TV and connect to the device you want to use to set up wifi.

First, you need to power on the device you will use to connect to your network. This can be a computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. You can also use the remote control app on your smartphone to set up your wifi connection.

Step 2: Press the ‘Menu’ button on your remote.

Once your device is powered, use the remote control to navigate to the ‘Network’ option. This will allow you to set up wifi on your Insignia TV. Press the ‘Menu’ button once to open up the network options.

Step 3: Choose ‘Wireless Network’ from within the network settings.

Depending on your device, selecting ‘Network’ might not be in the menu. We have found that pressing ‘Menu,’ inserting your tablet/smartphone/PC into its charging slot, and then selecting ‘Network’ usually works to get wifi hotplugged on your Insignia TV!

Step 4: Connect to Settings WLAN

Choose ‘Settings. WLAN’ and press left or right until you see the Wi-Fi Checkbox that says “Enabled.” Shut down all other connections on your Insignia TV and turn off its power—alternatively, press SELECT(TBD), which will turn off all connected devices immediately. The risk of power loss equals delayed setup!

It’s that simple! If this fails, perform step 1 after turning on your device (whether it’s a computer at work as mentioned above or a powered smartphone as mentioned above), then repeat steps 2-6 to correct any further problems with connecting to wifi.
