I want to hardwire my internet instead of using wireless on the new onn. roku tv and I bought the adapter so my Ethernet can plug into the USB port but the tv doesn’t have an option to use wired connection. How can I get the tv to use the wired connection instead of wireless?
Not sure if every TV is capable/recognizes the USB to LAN ethernet adapter feature. Have not used it before on a RokuTV, but you are supposed to be able to just plug it in, do a system restart and if it is going to work should be recognized when system boots back up.
then let TV Reboot.....
SETTINGS....NETWORK....SET UP CONNECTION
Try steps above since you already have the adaptor. Maybe it just failed to recognize or you didnt do system restart. Or maybe the ONN is lacking the feature.
A lot of people knowledgeable in this forum so maybe they will be able to offer you better advice.

onn is Walmart's own brand and they usually specify stripped down versions where things they deem as nonessential are not included.
Does this model not have an Ethernet port you can connect to directly without having to use an adapter?
An Ethernet-to-USB adaptor will only work if the TV's USB port explicitly supports an Ethernet function. Many/most don't. If the tv has no Ethernet port, it seems unlikely that they'd have a USB port that supports Ethernet. This sounds like a question that should be referred to onn.
