How to hookup tv to router/Internet with no USB connection

by Thehandymancan / August 9, 2013 1:54 AM PDT

One of my tv's has no USB or Ethernet port. It only has HDMI, DVI and a 75 ohm coax connection. What hardware would it take to get this tv on my wireless network ?

I use a few and since each has its strengths and weakness as well as well discussed on the internet I'll list what I use.

1. Laptop.
2. ChromeCast.
3. Apple TV.

I answered a similar question but forgot this one.
4. Kindle Fire HD 7.

Seems to be a lot more solutions out there today.

What I have is Roku 3 and HD Homerun on my network and want to get it to the tv that isn't yet on network.
