Network settings

You can set up your television to a network either with a wired or wireless broadband connection. For the most reliable network connection, Bang & Olufsen recommends making a wired connection. Bang & Olufsen also recommends that you use a separate router and access point – a Network Link router – to ensure the most reliable playback of digital files.

In some countries, it is not possible to set up a wireless connection, and you must use a wired connection.

  1. Connect your television to the router with a LAN cable for a wired connection or turn on the power of your router to make a wireless connection. The router should be connected to the internet beforehand.
  2. Press  to bring up the Home menu.
  3. Use the arrow buttons to select Settings and press the centre button.
  4. Press  or  to select Picture & Programmes... and press the centre button.
  5. Press  or  to select Network and press the T20-Nav-Right.jpg button. 
  6. Press  or  to select a menu item and press the centre button. To set up a wired connection, select Wired Connection (Ethernet). To set up a wireless connection, select Wi-Fi connection
  7. Follow on-screen instructions.

Network Setting Warnings

  • Use standard LAN cable (connect to Cat7 or higher with RJ45 connector, 10 Base-T, or 100 Base TX LAN port).
  • Resetting the modem may fix some network connection problems. Turn the power OFF, disconnect and reconnect it, and then turn the power on to solve the problem.
  • The network connection may not work properly because of network settings or the Internet service provider.
  • DSL service must use a DSL modem; and cable service must use a cable modem. Since only a limited number of network connections may be available, TV network setting may not be used depending on the contract with Internet service provider. (If the contract does not allow more than one device per line, only the already-connected PC may be used.)
  • A wireless network can experience interference from other devices that use the 2.4 GHz frequency (wireless phone, Bluetooth device, or microwave oven). Although interference can also happen when using the 5 GHz frequency, it is less likely to occur.
  • The wireless environment can make wireless network service run slowly.
  • Failure to turn off all local home networks may cause excessive traffic on some devices.
  • The access point device must support wireless connections and wireless connection feature must be enabled on the device to have AP (access point) connection. Contact the service provider for availability of wireless connections on the access point.
  • Check SSID and security settings of the AP. Refer to the appropriate documentation for SSID and security settings of the AP.
  • Invalid settings of network devices (wired/wireless line sharer, hub) can cause the TV to operate slowly or not operate properly. Install the devices correctly according to the appropriate manual and network.
  • The connection method may differ depending on the AP manufacturer.

Depending on the market, Wireless LAN connection may require a wireless adaptor, which is purchased separately.

When you connect your television to the internet, make sure to check the information provided by your internet service provider and refer to the guidance for the router.
