ok, what you need it so get this device

www.google.com/chromecast

It is a device you connect to your HDMI port on your TV and then it connects to your wireless network.

Then you can send the content wirelessly from your computer to the TV.

This includes Netflix, Youtube ect, anything the screen can see.

You can also use the device with your phone as well.

It is a very simple and straight forward product to use and will allow for this.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

THE TV SHOWS IT IS CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET WIFI
Expert:  Richard replied 10 months ago.

yes, but the wifi is only for use on Apps on the TV.

It is not related to the computer.

This is why you have the Chrome cast device (for $30)
