How to Connect a Samsung Dongle to an LED TV

Save

Much like cellphones, a number of LED TVs are being manufactured with built-in apps such as Netflix and Pandora. Although all these TVs can be hard-wired to your modem or router using an Ethernet cable, it is possible to link them to a Wi-Fi network using a USB dongle (sold separately). In order to take advantage of your Samsung LED TV's Wi-Fi capabilities, you must use a Samsung brand wireless dongle, as other brands are incompatible with Samsung TVs.

Things You'll Need

  • Samsung brand wireless LAN adapter
  • Plug the Samsung USB wireless LAN adapter into any of the USB ports on the back of your Samsung LED TV.

  • Switch on the TV and press the "Menu" button on the remote control.

  • Select the "Settings" or "Setup" option.

  • Select "Wireless Network Setup" and select "Internet Protocol Setup" from the list of options.

  • Select the "Auto Setup" option.

Tips & Warnings

  • Your Samsung LED TV may prompt you to select an access point and enter a password to access the network. Talk to the person who set up your home Wi-Fi network to get the network name and password.
  • Not all Samsung LED TVs are Internet connectible.
  • Although Wi-Fi setup is generally the same for all Samsung TVs, there may be slight variations in the menus of different models.
