The K5100 is a entry level TV with non smart hub, or built-in wireless functionality.

You can buy a wireless adaptor for the TV, however the fact there are is no app store, and WIFI-Direct isnt supported, would suggest you still wouldnt be able to stream your Laptop to your TV. The best option would be to use a HDMI cable from the Apple Laptop to the TV.

If you advise the model of laptop I can recommend a suitable cable.

Thanks! So that explains why I couldn't seem to find the functionality on my TV (which was provided by my landlord). I relocated from US to UK recently and my own TV in US connected to wifi with no problem at all! I have a Macbook....thanks.

No problem, the cable you require can be found here, if you want to display your laptop content on the TV via HDMI.

Hi there - please could you forward to me the link again - it went to Viking web site but not the actual product (i.e. The cable). Thanks, alison

The link above works for me when I click it, on the Viking website search for Q29-6567074 that should take you to the cable.
