Using Wi-Fi to connect to your box
YouView boxes aren’t Wi-Fi enabled. They need a wired Ethernet connection to connect the internet, so that we can give you the best quality experience.

We recommend using powerline adapters if your router is too far from your box. These help carry your broadband signal over long distances, using your household electrical circuit. Want to know more about powerline adapters?

Alternatively, you can use a Wi-Fi bridge to connect to your box. These adapters are the same as powerline adapters, except they use Wi-Fi to connect to each other, rather than your electrical circuit. They’re a little more complex to set up so we’d recommend speaking to your local electrical retail shop to find out more.
