Not all YouView boxes are Wi-Fi enabled. If they are not Wi-Fi enabled, they need a wired Ethernet connection to connect the internet, so that we can give you the best quality experience.
If you do not have a Wi-Fi enabled YouView box, 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.
If you have a Wi-Fi enabled YouView box, connecting to the internet is quick and simple. The Wi-Fi enabled boxes can connect to any 5GHZ router however we would recommend that you use the Smart Hub provided with the box for the best quality internet connection. If your box is too far away from your router, we would recommend a wired connection to get the best quality internet connection.
