Re: Have i missed something?

A fridge, for example, its unlikely you will have an ethernet point in the kitchen, so it must connect wirelessly, therefore, it must be configured to connect. If i choose not to configure it, then it cant connect can it?

Or is it like these unwanted smart meters using MESH to connect.

You have to get the TV to really really promise not to tell the fridge the WPA key and hope that the TV isn't as tempted by cold beer as you would be
