  2. Select [Wi‑Fi Direct settings].
  3. Select the TV name displayed on the TV screen with the Wi-Fi Direct device.
    If the device does not support Wi-Fi Direct, select the [Show Network (SSID)/Password].

To change the band setting (for experts)

When your TV is not connected wirelessly to a router, you can select the wireless band for the Wi-Fi Direct function. Press the HOME button, then select [Settings] — [Network] — [Wi‑Fi Direct] — [Advanced settings] — [Band setting].

[Auto (5GHz band)]
Use this option when connecting with devices that support 5GHz. This option may improve video streaming quality.

Note that when you select this option, the TV cannot connect with devices that support 2.4GHz only.
