How do I connect my TCL Smart TV to my Wifi network?
How can I connect my TCL Smart TV to my wifi network? It can find my network and when I try to connect it times out. It also recognizes the right password and tells me when it's incorrect. All my other devices are connected fine, so I know it's not my internet connection.

Can you please elaborate in details, what all you are trying or how you are planning to connect your TV. or Is your wifi and wifi router is working properly and wifi is configured properly on your smart TV.
If your tv is indeed a smart tv, you only need (through the appropriate tv menu selection) to scan for wifi networks, find yours, select 'connect' and then give the wifi password (see the tv manual in order to find where is that menu). If the list of the networks does not include yours then maybe the tv is out of range and you may need a wifi extender.
If your tv is not a smart tv then you should get a 'smart tv box' (about 50 euro cost)
You mention two separate issues, WiFi and smart hub. As you know Samsung built in manual is the worst idea ever. There is no picture of the complete rear panel connection for example.
If the smart hub is the actual WiFi antenna then if your system doesn't recognize Smart Hub then you have a bad smart hub.
to test smart hub plug something into hub ( DVD HDMI, video game) If your remote has smart hub button press and see what appears. Otherwise select source on remote see if your attached item appears. (That would indicate smart hub does talk to TV)!
Since you can access your network when hard wired your network password is stored.
Once you have verified Smart Hub is functional then work on WiFi.
i will say my Samsung is 3 ft from my router and hard wired for better streaming speed.
I use Bluetooth access to share photos from IPads.
I would leave TV hard wired.
I assume you want to connect your smart TV to your network (e.g. to get Internet access for NetFlix).
Depending upon the precise model, it will support WiFi or wired Ethernet (or both). If your TV supports a wired connection, that will provide the best performance. All you need is a spare port on your router/switch and a straight-through network cable.
If your TV supports WiFi, you'll need to get into the its setup to enter the settings matching your home network - that is, you must choose the SSID (essentially, your WiFi network name; so your TV connects to your network and not your neighbor's) and wireless security information.
