How to Hook Up a 1080P Mitsubishi TV to the Internet

By Eoghan McCloskey

Certain Mitsubishi televisions are built with the capacity to connect to the Internet via an Ethernet local area network (LAN) connection. Integrating your HDTV into your LAN network is one way to ensure the consistency of your TV-viewing experience; the television can download updates over the LAN connection and stream movies directly from the Internet through media streaming services. If you own a Mitsubishi 1080p television and want to take advantage of all the Internet features, you can connect the television to your home network.

Step 1

Examine the back of your Mitsubishi HDTV to see if it has an Ethernet port. If it doesn't, you first need to upgrade to a different model of HDTV that features an Ethernet port.

Step 2

Plug the Ethernet cable into one of the numbered LAN Ethernet ports on your router or other home networking device and plug the other end of the cable into the television's Ethernet port.

Step 3

Unplug the power cord of the router or other networking device for 30 seconds and plug it back in. Networking hardware that uses Ethernet cables will not recognize that a new device has been plugged into until it has been reset and allowed to reboot. After the networking device has fully rebooted, you have integrated your Mitsubishi HDTV into your home Ethernet network.
