Connecting your SunBrite TV to Wi-Fi without a remote can seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually quite simple.
Whether you’ve misplaced your remote or your TV doesn’t have one, there are several solutions that will allow you to stay connected.
One way to connect your SunBrite TV to Wi-Fi without a remote is by adjusting your Wi-Fi network details to match the last Wi-Fi network your SunBrite TV remembered.
This will enable your TV to identify and automatically connect to this wireless network during startup, requiring no effort on your part, especially if you don’t have your TV remote with you.
Let me walk you through the process.
How to Connect Sunbrite TV to Wi-Fi Without Remote
Connecting your Sunbrite TV to Wi-Fi without a remote can be a bit tricky, but it is possible.
Before you can connect your TV to Wi-Fi, you must first find a Wi-Fi network that is named exactly as the last Wi-Fi your Sunbrite TV was connected to.
In this case, you’ll have to change your wireless network details to the exact name and password your SunBrite can recall.
This is quite easy if you’re using your smartphone as a personal hot-spot.
Here’s how to go about it on different devices;
- Open “Settings.”
- Tap on “Personal Hotspot.”
- Select “Wi-Fi Password” to change the hotspot password.
- To change the hotspot name, go back to “Settings,” tap on “General,” then “About,” and finally, “Name.”
- Open “Settings.”
- Look for “Connections” or “Network & Internet” and select “Hotspot & Tethering.”
- Tap on “Wi-Fi Hotspot” or a similar option.
- You can change the hotspot name and password in the relevant settings.
Changing Wi-Fi Details on Router:
- Access your router settings through a web browser (typically by entering the router’s IP address).
- Log in with your router credentials (usually admin/admin or provided on the router).
- Locate the “Wireless” or “Wi-Fi” settings.
- Change the SSID (Wi-Fi name) and/or password.
- Save the changes, and your router will reboot with the new settings.
Note: Steps may vary slightly based on your device’s model and router brand.
Once you have found the Wi-Fi network, follow these simple steps to connect your TV to Wi-Fi without a remote:
- Turn on your Sunbrite TV. If your TV is already on, turn it off and then turn it back on again.
- Wait for the TV to boot up. Once the TV has booted up, it will automatically search for available Wi-Fi networks.
- The TV will automatically connect to a known Wi-Fi network which is your device.
It’s important to note that if the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to is not named exactly as the last Wi-Fi your Sunbrite TV was connected to, you won’t be able to connect your TV to Wi-Fi without a remote.
In this case, you will need to either find the remote or purchase a new one.
Troubleshooting Connection Issues
If you’re having trouble connecting your Sunbrite TV to Wi-Fi without a remote, there are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the issue.
Here are a couple of solutions to try:
Resetting Network Settings
If your TV is having trouble connecting to Wi-Fi, try resetting your network settings.
This will erase any saved Wi-Fi networks and passwords that your TV has stored, so you’ll need to re-enter them after the reset.
To reset your network settings, follow these steps:
- Press the “Menu” button on your TV’s remote control.
- Select “Settings” from the menu.
- Scroll down to “Network” and select it.
- Choose “Reset Network Settings.”
- Confirm that you want to reset the network settings.
Once your network settings have been reset, try connecting your TV to Wi-Fi again.
This should resolve any issues that were preventing your TV from connecting to Wi-Fi.
