How to disconnect cable box, but keep internet

I am canceling my cable and bringing the box back to Comcast, however; since I've disconnected the cable box, my wifi/internet isn't working properly.  Does anyone have step by step directions on what needs to be connected to the Smart TV so I can watch Netflix, Hulu, etc..

You connect your TV to wifi just like you connect your smartphone.  Your user manual should have something about connecting to wifi, assuming it supports wifi.

 

If it doesn't support wifi, it might have an ethernet connection, which I doubt because you say you have a SmartTV.

I am not a Comcast Employee.
I am just a customer, volunteering my time to help other customers here in the Forums.
