How to make None Smart TV smart !

Hi

I have a LG 43" TV 43LF540V , it is not a smart TV , but it has a LAN conection and it will connect to a Sky SC201 wifi hub ( used for Sky on demand ) I do have a Sky + hd box on free view ! . Anyway what I am trying to do is try to make my none smart TV into a smart to only to cast a web page to the TV from my PC ( ia a TalkTalk router ). But I seem to have problems with that scenario , I don't seem to be able to connect to the interent via this Sky hub via my PC , but the strange thing is if I turn my wifi of on my laptop ( there is a manual switch to do that ) I can connect to the internet via the Sky hub . Not sure if I am explaining this very well ! .

cheers

Spike

This might do. You have to subscribe to things like Netflix

Is your Talk Talk router dual band? Will your Sky Box connect to the 2.4GHz network?

Unfortunately your not. john bunyan's answer is the best option.

The LAN port is for software upgrade purposes only
