Nice to meet you, *****!
Do you mean you want to connect LG TV directly to the modem?

Customer Replay


You need to plug your Ethernet cable into one of the RJ45 sockets on the rear of your internet modem/ router and then plug the other end into your TV. That should be it with no need to change any settings on your TV.
