Is there any way to connect an LG 47LM6700 to a isolated wireless router without internet connection for WiDi?  Right now it refuses to connect to any wireless network without internet.

No you can't with wireless so that is correct.
If you want to connect to the smart TV with no internet you need to use a wired connection that is not through a router but from point a TV to point b PC with an Ethernet cable.
That will work to a point, as far as I understand it any programs you want to use on the TV all use internet right? except for the free to air.
To see free to air TV on your PC you could just use a TV adapter on your PC.
What your purpose is here I need to know, because you can't actually watch anything on your PC that is on the TV with no internet.
Please explain what you need to achieve.
thanks.

That seems to be the problem, the inbuilt wireless in the TV is automatically attempting to find an address from your wireless router.
And since you have no internet right it cant find a signal?
OR you dont have an account to use the services on the wireless TV?

 First step, with the TV remote control enter your television's settings menu and find the option for wireless networking setup. After finding your network in the list of available access points, you'll have to enter your network password — if you don't have this already, ask the person that set up your wireless network. Some newer routers and TVs also support WPS (Wireless Protected Setup) — so instead of entering a password, all you have to do is press the button on your router when prompted by the TV. When you've entered a password or hit the WPS button, you should receive a prompt that wireless setup is complete.

Once you've set up Internet access on your television, you should be able to access Web services directly — on most televisions there's a menu that allows you to choose and configure services as you want. Connecting your TV to your router and the Internet should also give it access your computer, allowing it share media files via DLNA.

or open the network sharing center from network icon then click on home network
choose  select view or change home network  then pick out what you want to share
