Sorry but your question makes NO SENSE and is impossible to answer.

The REMOTE control DOES NOT USE WIFI OR ETHERNET, it uses RF direct from the remote to the TV.

So you were able to ask the TV, via the remote control, to download something from the internet, remember simply making the request DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY NETWORK INTERACTION. However the TV now needs a network connection in order to get the APP from the Internet.

Now that connection can be WiFi or Ethernet.

Are you sure that the TV uses Blue tooth to connect to its remote control, it is more usual to use Infra Red, which your phone probably does not have.

You have to construct your questions in a more concise manner, otherwise anyone trying to help you is simply GUESSING at what you are talking about.

For instance you use the phrase "one TV's button" DUH?

I have left my remote contol at home.

I have only one TV button interface. You make to change program channel, Up/Down volume and Power off.

You cannot launch applications using one button interface.

      Hello,
      Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 
      Kind regards,
