Re: how do I get Netflix on my tv
First you need a Netflix account. Then, if you have a smart TV, it needs to be connected to the internet and have the Netflix app. If your TV is not smart, your DVD player probably has Netflix on it and that needs to be connected to the internet. Then you have to log into Netflix on your computer and authorize the new device. They will give you an activation code to enter on the device.

There's a lot of missing information. Does your TV have wireless WiFi capability? If not, then there is no way to connect to the internet. Do you have a wireless router? Without this information containing makes and models, it's difficult to give a meaningful answer.
Netflix is a streaming service that runs as an application on an internet capable smart tv or similar device. Choices for stand-alone hardware include "AppleTV" "Google Chrome" they will connect to your tv and your wifi to stream content. You will still need to register for an account. If you have Sony PlayStation or Xbox they also have Netflix apps. If you have a smart tv you should either already have it in your tv app list or be able to download it from the connected App Store.
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.

Lol I used my standard AV cables for the component, and I used an adapter to plug the audio into my speaker ...
What device? Smart TV? Blue ray player? Roku? Phone? Whatever it is make sure it has WiFi and not just Ethernet hard wire capabilities. Also if u have WiFi then disconnect then reconnect. Same with Netflix app ..uninstall then reinstall. ..being more specific would be a great help
A smart TV is a TV that has more then just basic connections for DVD or TV provider. A smart TV has built in applications that use your WIFI to connect to the internet. Most smart T'S have applications that can provide movies, Web searches and or music channels. Smart TV is kind of like mixing your TV with your PC. Just more basic then your PC.
You must have WIFI in your home to use the features.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Do a search by type in the brand name of your device at its search box. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Vizio will not connect with Netgear wi fi, BUT if you want to try it, you have to adjust the security
If you have the skilset then..........
Set your router to use both WPA-PSK (TKIP) and WPA2-PSK (AES) and the TV finally connected using the WPA-PSK (TKIP) security!
