Then just go to the TVs and network section and look for available networks and when you see yours then try and connect. You will need the wireless password and then connect

no difference to basically to connecting mobile to your network

Re: L:inking my TV to my computer

If possible the best, most reliable solution is to run an ethernet cable from the router (Homehub) to a network switch by the TV. Then connect the TV and the Youview box and any other "smart" AV box (eg DVD player) to the network switch with short ethernet patch cables.

How you hide the long run of cable depends on your particular home but I have mine tucked under the edge of the carpet running all round the dining room (where the router is which doubles as my study) and the living room.  General advice is that the cable can be up to 100M long so more than plenty for the typical size of home.
