Connecting your Mi TV Stick to Wi-Fi without a remote may seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually quite simple.
Whether you’ve lost your remote or it’s not working properly, there are a few ways to connect your Mi TV Stick to Wi-Fi without it.
You have a couple of options:
you can either connect an external device like a keyboard or mouse to your TV, or adjust your current Wi-Fi settings to match the ones your device recognizes.
How to Connect Mi TV Stick to Wi-Fi Without a Remote
1. Using USB Devices
One of the easiest ways to connect your Mi TV Stick to Wi-Fi without a remote is by using a USB keyboard or mouse.
Simply plug the USB device into the back of your TV, and you should be able to navigate to the TV’s settings and connect it to your Wi-Fi network.
From there, you can connect your TV with your Mi Account and start streaming your favorite shows and movies.
If the USB device doesn’t work as expected, it might need additional configuration before you can use it to navigate your TV.
In this case, you have a second option, which involves editing your Wi-Fi network details.
2. Editing Your Wi-Fi Network Details
You can achieve this by leveraging the last known WiFi network your device was previously connected to.
Here’s how you can do this:
1. Recall the Last WiFi Network
The first step is to recall the WiFi network your Mi TV Stick was last connected to.
If you remember the name (SSID) and the password, you’re well on your way.
2. Rename Your Current WiFi Network
Access your router’s settings, typically done through a web browser on your computer or mobile device.
Log in with the router’s credentials. Locate the option to manage your WiFi networks.
3. Rename Your WiFi Network
Now, rename your current WiFi network (the one you want to connect your Mi TV Stick to) to match the exact SSID (network name) and password of the network your Mi TV Stick remembers.
Make sure you enter this information precisely, as it needs to be an exact match.
4. Reboot Your Mi TV Stick
Unplug the Mi TV Stick from your TV and then plug it back in. Allow it to restart.
It should now detect and automatically connect to the WiFi network with the familiar credentials.
By following these steps, you can successfully connect your Mi TV Stick to WiFi without a remote.
Remember to be cautious while altering your WiFi network settings and ensure you have the correct details to avoid any connection issues.
This simple trick can save you from the hassle of searching for a lost remote and get your Mi TV Stick back online in no time.
