How do I connect to a wireless network with a Philips model 32PFL5403D/F7 TV?
The Philips 32PFL5403D/F7 is not a Smart TV and can only be connected to a network through a set-top or streaming stick. The ChromeCast, Roku Stick, Roku 3, or AppleTV are examples that would work. The hotspot would not be recognized by the TV since it can't access the needed data (drivers, etc). The Playstation Wii should communicate with your wireless network and connect to the TV via the composite input on the TV. Make sure that you know the router password. The Wii supports WEP and WEP encryption. (If you have a problem viewing the Wii content on the Philips set, make sure that you used the composite output and used the Wii cable. Ordinary composite video cables don't work.)
An error of 51330 or 52130 from the Wii means that the password that you entered was not accepted by the router (or hotspot). You should have a device that is already connected to the hotspot, use that to check the SSID and password. Please add a comment with information about the model of hotspot for additional assistance. The information should be under Settings > Wi-Fi for most models but it may vary. (Check that the hotspot isn't in a sleep mode and that you are close to the Wii and still get a strong connection to your cell network.)
(If you are using a router to extend your network, I recommend using a wired connection to check the wi-fi network SSID and password. You have to log into the router to check or change things. If you reset the wireless network during this, you lose your connection to the router.)
