plug the mouse into usb port
  • Wait a few seconds, so the TV will pick up the mouse. Now it will show the pointer on the screen.

2- Use Ethernet Cable

Ethernet cable provides a faster internet connection and is one of the easiest ways to connect your Hisense to the internet. 

If you’re using an ethernet cable, you don’t need to enter the passwords and navigate to wifi settings.

Unluckily, if you’re using the older model of Hisense TV, it lacks the ethernet port, so you can’t use this method. 

And if the Hisense TV has an ethernet port, follow the below-mentioned steps to connect it to Wifi. 

  • First, you need an ethernet cable; it’s available on Amazon. 
  • After you have the cable, connect one side to the ethernet port of the wifi router. 
  • And plug the other side of the cable into the ethernet port behind the Hisense TV. 
  • You don’t need to do anything else. Now your Hisense TV is connected to the internet.

Once the Hisense TV is connected to the internet, you can use the smartphone app to connect it to Wifi. 

3- Use Smartphone App To Connect Hisense TV To Wifi

You might have used the universal remote controls, which are super nifty because of hybrid compatibility. If you have a universal remote control, you can use it to connect Hisense TV to Wifi. 

I love the universal remote because it helps to avoid the cluttering of remotes. If you have a lot of remotes, you can replace them with a single universal remote control. 

There are a lot of universal remotes available, but we recommend Logitech remotes because they offer screens so you can easily navigate devices. Also, this remote is easy to connect with the Hisense TV. 

Once the universal remote is connected to Hisense TV, go to Settings > Network Settings > Turn on the Wifi. Enter the credentials of the wifi network, and you’re good to go. 

6- Cheat Your Hisense TV With Mobile Hotspot

Almost all smart TV automatically connect to the wifi network with whom they have previously connected. Taking the benefit of this, you can cheat on your Hisense TV using a mobile hotspot. 

If you remember any previous wifi network with which you connected your TV, you can use its name and password to trick the Hisense TV.

Open your mobile hotspot, and change its name and password to a previous wifi network. Now turn on the Hisense TV, which will automatically connect to your mobile hotspot. 

Note: If you have connected the Hisense TV with a mobile hotspot, it might need the data, so make sure you have a mobile data plan subscription to operate the TV.
