You can auth your tv to use wi-fi without password via mac from wify setup when detected.

disable passphrase from router and connect tv, auth tv and pus back passphrase and it should work, if not, change security type of router to another, WPA/WPA2 where it would let you enter any password you like.

Trying to login to my hulu account on my smart tv. I can't figure out how to capitalize the letters on the hulu tv keyboard. I have capital letters in my password. What do I need to do ?


Hi Glenn,
Depending on the version you have , there is either a key labelled "upper" or there is a button with a "123" on it that cycles modes from letter to numbers to upper case to lower case etc or I have been told there is a button labled "!@#" which apparently does the same thing.

How do I find the MAC address?


Should be a sticker on the tv somewhere that have numerous sets of either letters or numbers in sets of 2 separated by either colons ":" or periods. It may also be under an access panel behind the tv. Last you might try running a set to a network and see if it displays during the setup.

WiFi Security Best Practices

Use WPA/WPA2 encryption. Avoid using Open or WEP-encrypted WiFi. Use WiFi Protected Access (WPA) or WPA2 with 802.1x authentication if possible. If you use a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) authentication, use a strong passphrase (aka WPA shared key) that is at least eight characters long and is a combination of alphanumeric and special characters.

Ntel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN i want to


To secure the wireless network or to change any settings on the router you will need to access the router set up interface.
Open the set up interface of the router . Make sure that your computer will be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable.

Once you open the set up page of the router , you will find the place to change the wireless settings of the router. In case of Linksys wireless router , you will see the Wireless Tab at the top.

SSID : It is the name of the wireless network. This name will be shown on your wireless computer or the wireless device so that you can identify your own wireless network. All the routers come with their factory default settings. For example , the Linksys router will come with the Linksys network name.
It will be better to change the wireless network name.


Wireless Security

Change the security mode to WEP. This security type is supported by all the operating system. When change the security mode to WEP, you will find the Network key box to type the network key. Do not type anything in the Passphrase box. Type your network key in the Key 1 Box. If you set the encryption to 65 bits, your network key will be 10 digit hexadecimal number. that means you can use the combination of 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and letters a,b,c,d,e,f only. remember it should be exactly 10.
If you set the Encryption to 128 bit, your network key will be the combination of 26 digits. You will need to remember the network key.

WPA

This is one of the most secured type of encryption.
Open the set up interface of the router. Change the wireless security mode to WPA personal. You will find the passphrase box. in this box you can type any password for your wireless network. The password should be the combination of number and letters and it should be 8 or more than 8 characters.
This security type is supported by WINDOWS XP SP2 and above Operating system.

WPA2
This is one of the highly secured type of encryption.
Open the set up interface of the router. Change the wireless security mode to WPA personal. You will find the passphrase box.In this box you can type any password for your wireless network. The password should be the combination of number and letters and it should be 8 or more than 8 characters. Keep the Algorithm to TKIP.
This security type is supported by WINDOWS VISTA and above.

Once you change the wireless settings on the router , try to connect to the new wireless network .
