As far as I know you have internet connection right? The router may produce a signal but you will need to connect your TV to that router if your TV in fact accepts wifi connections. If not, you will need to use whatever utility your TV uses to sync to your PC. I don't know of any other way to get a TV to join the network. Its either gotta be connected to the network via ethernet cable/wifi OR it needs to sync to your PC in some way, similar to Windows Media Center syncing to your Xbox etc.

Oh it's not a smart TV but the main thing is getting the Amazon fire TV device to connect to my pc but it connects to my Hubby's laptop.

Im not familiar with the Amazon Fire Tv device, how does your husband connect to this device? Via wifi? Your PC will need a wifi adapter if so. You can get one at the store for I think about $30-40.

Yes his laptop is on WiFi. I was hoping the network adapter that was once a router I'm using connects to Xbox one. Weird.

What type of network adapter do you have? There is a difference between connecting to your Xbox and connecting to Wifi.

When your husband connects to Amazon Fire TV, what does he usually do and/or when he first set it up, how did he connect?

He connects through WiFi. I'm assuming my netgear wgv8 router which I turned into a network adapter would connect like regular WiFi adapter to the Amazon fire TV but I will try to unplug it and hook it up via USB to my PC to see what happens.

Or should I connect to the router first?

Your PC needs a Wifi adapter to connect wirelessly. To me is seems you have an ethernet card with no wifi capabilities.

Are you saying your Amazon Fire TV has a USB stick that allows you to connect to Wifi?

To connect to your Amazon Fire TV, I'd assume you have a utility CD or something so that you can sync it to your PC.

What steps did your husband perform to get the Amazon TV to connect to his laptop and what exactly does he do each time he "connects" to it?

Oh OK. I will just have to buy a USB WiFi network adapter then. I was thinking my router that I turned into WiFi adapter connected good to my Hubby's PC and Xbox that I would be able to connect to amazon fTV. Thanks anyway I'll just do that. As for the steps for my Hubby's laptop which has built in WiFi adapter which most laptops do, all I did was allow homegroup then go to network and it was there.
