It is a Saturday and you are sat on your cozy sofa with popcorn in hand, ready to binge-watch that favorite documentary series on your awesome Hisense TV. You grab the remote to your Hisense TV and are struck with the realization that the thing won’t work as the batteries are dead, or you can’t even find the damn thing in the first place.

Fret not, your weekend is saved as we are about to tell you how to seamlessly turn on and connect your Hisense TV to Wifi without a remote. 

Connect Hisense TV to Wifi without a remote

Only after connecting your Hisense TV to wifi will you be able to take full advantage of the amazing features that your awesome display has to offer. If your Hisense TV doesn’t connect to the internet with or without a remote, you lose access to a multitude of functions that made your TV such an attractive purchase in the first place. 

The easiest way to access the internet through wifi on your Hisense TV is, of course, the remote. But if, for some reason, you are left with no remote, you can still connect your Hisense TV to wifi. 

In this simple, step-by-step guide, we will inform you of the easiest ways that you can use to connect your Hisense TV to wifi without a remote. You can start with any one of these steps which is more convenient for you in terms of logistics and technical know-how.

Using the physical buttons on the TV itself

Products required: No additional products required other than your Hisense TV

Does a Hisense TV even have buttons, you ask? 

You are in luck because Hisense is one of the few brands that enable you to fiddle with TV settings using physical buttons on the TV itself. It is one of the simplest ways to tinker with TV settings without a remote. 

Most Hisense TVs come with two physical buttons on them, one for the Menu and the other for Navigation. In some models, the TV has a single button that can be used for the Trifecta i.e. Power ON/OFF, Menu, and Navigation. The duration of presses on the button on TV models with a single physical button is what performs any of the three functions. 

Bonus Tip: A helpful guide on the length of the press is always hovering around the TV screen on these models.

In rare instances, some Hisense TVs come with a dedicated WLAN button. Pressing this button automatically connects your Hisense TV to wifi without a remote.

Suppose your TV lacks the rare WLAN button, you can easily use the following steps to use the physical buttons to connect your Hisense TV to wifi:

How to connect to wifi using physical buttons:

  • Turn your TV “On”
  • Press the dedicated “Menu” button or press the lone button for the required time to go to “Menu”
  • Navigate to the “Settings” box
  • Move to “Network/Network and Internet” bar inside “Settings”
  • Select “Wifi Settings”
  • Among the list of available Wifi networks, select yours.
  • You will either be asked for a password or the TV will connect automatically to your wifi connection (you can put in the password by using the Navigation key)
  • Press “Connect”

The above process is not exactly replicable for all Hisense models as the names and placement of certain settings may differ. But the overall gist of the operation remains the same and internet can easily be accessed through your Hisense TV without a remote through this method.

Bonus Tip: Using the “Navigation” key to put in the wifi password is quite a hassle so make sure you put in the correct password in one go.

And this way, you can watch your favorite Netflix series on your Hisense TV without a remote.

Using Ethernet Cable

 Products required: 

  1. Ethernet cable long enough to connect your internet router to your Hisense TV
  2. Hisense RemoteNow app on your smartphone

Another useful way to work your Hisense TV without a remote is to use an Ethernet cable. Where is the ethernet port on your Hisense smart TV, you ask? Just have a peek at the back of the TV and you will see the ethernet port, along with the USB ports, on your TV. 

To use this port to connect your Hisense TV to wifi without a remote, you need to get hold of an ethernet cable long enough to connect both your internet router and your TV. Or, you can also bring the router closer to your Hisense TV if you have a shorter ethernet cable.

Bonus Tip: Make sure your Hisense TV is turned off before plugging in the ethernet cable

Steps to connect to Wifi without a remote, using an Ethernet cable:

  • Plug in one end of the ethernet cable in the ethernet port in your Hisense TV and the other end in your internet router
  • Turn your TV “ON”
  • You will see that the TV is connected to the internet, with access to all the goodies that come with an internet connection.

Bonus Tip: You can keep using the wired internet connection or you can opt to connect to a wireless network from here on.

Pro Tip: The wired connection provides much better speeds than wireless ones, which is always better for various streaming platforms.

  • You can connect your Hisense TV to wifi from here through Hisense’s original app on your phone, called RemoteNow. 
  • Use these links to get the iOS or Android versions of the app.
  • In order to connect your Hisense TV to wifi, make sure your smartphone is connected to the same internet router as the Hisense TV.
  • Since both the TV and the phone are on the same network, you can pair them using the RemoteNow app on your smartphone.
  • Once paired, you can easily use the built-in digital remote inside your RemoteNow app to navigate through the TV’s “Settings”.
  • There, you will find “Network/Network and Internet” option.
  • Inside that, you will find your wifi network mentioned by name, selecting which will connect your Hisense TV to wifi connection.

Bonus Tip: You can control your Hisense TV without a remote with this digital replica and enjoy your weekend as usual.
