How to Hook Up Sharp Aquos to the Internet Wirelessly

by C. Taylor

    Sharp Aquos TVs that include an integrated wireless adapter can connect to your home's wireless network. This feature enables you to access Aquos Advantage Live, which provides remote assistance to test settings and properly configure your TV. A wireless connection also provides Internet access for streaming content or accessing a multitude of Internet applications. Many modern routers support Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) that automates the connection process, but you can manually enter connection details as well.

    Step 1

    Power on the Aquos TV and press the "Menu" button on its remote control.

    Step 2

    Select "Internet Setup," "Network Setup" and then "Connection Type" by pressing the up or down arrow keys to highlight an option, and then select "Enter" to activate it.

    Step 3

    Press the left or right arrow keys to highlight "Wireless" and press "Enter."

    Step 4

    Select "Wireless Setup," "Change" and then "WPS." As an alternative to using WPS, select "Manual Setup" to manually enter your connection details, such as SSID name, wireless security protocol and passphrase.

    Step 5

    Select "Push Button" and then "Next."

    Step 6

    Press the WPS button on your wireless router or access point and wait until a connection is established, indicated by an onscreen display of the connection details.

    Step 7

    Press "Enter" to complete the connection.

    Warnings

    • Not all Aquos models support wireless connectivity. The information in this article only applies to models that include a wireless adapter.
