5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the other reviews.... 14 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase
I too read all the reviews about the samsung internet dongle and people not being able to use it but still decided to buy it at the same time as my samsung LED telly from amazon and it's amazing.

I struggled with the wireless code for about 20 minutes until I realised I'd not changed the letters i was imputting from caps to non-caps and the bt hub password I was imputing was in upper case BUT I was entering my bt home hub password in lower case. you change the case using the red, green, yellow, blue buttons on the remote like you would use to control the remote. The reviewer saying it doesn't have numbers to enter is wrong, it clearly says in the set up that you use the remote to add in numbers 0-9 and the left right buttons to select the letters. (p.s. password can be found on the back of your bt home hub or your router password if you have set one). Also as you are doing the set up don't touch the volume or the channels or anything like that as you may need to start the process again. When I made an error I just pulled out the dongle. and put it back again and started from the beginning.

If I did all the above first time around I would have been set up in 2 minutes.

Then once I was synced with my home hub I updated the internet services to download all the apps to the TV's memory. This took about an hour to download so don't do this if you are wanting to watch tv or a film immediately, BUT once this had happened i was then able to get bbc iplayer, daily motion videos, youtube clips, and stream films from love film. It also had google maps and facebook and twitter. A photo manager, some more games, weather applications, a history channel app with what happened this day in history.

It's amazing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Internet feeds to your TV 17 July 2009
Verified Purchase
You may wonder why you need a Samsung special WiFi dongle instead of any of the other more widely available brands. The answer lies in the fact that you cannot load device drivers on to a TV, so it has to be a specially designed device that can be configured via the TV setup menus.
As soon as the device was plugged in, it detected all the nearest wireless routers easily enough, but the only way to get it to connect successfully to my home network was to enter its MAC address into the router. Apart form this, operation was reliable and unobtrusive. The dongle is fairly compact and is hardly noticable from the front, although I am surprised Samsung did not make it connect in an upright position. (The right angle adapter is only intended for use with Samsungs' BD player).

4.0 out of 5 stars Samsung 2009 Wireless Dongle 17 July 2009
A good piece of kit which does exactly what it says on the box. Connected my Samsung TV (L40B650) to my home network perfectly, and no problems with the security I have in place.

The supplied file sharing software (Samsung PC Share Manager) is a bit flakey. The interface response is very slow, and I gave up trying to share all of my media files(287GB)using the software. It worked fine when sharing 10GB though.

Once online the TV found some widgets, which now include a YouTube app. Each time it connects it's reasonably fast (20 seconds) to boot. Which I don't find a problem.

For £49 it's a handy addition, not essential but I'd recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its OK but surely not worth this kind of money. 17 Oct 2009

If you have a recent Samsung LCD tv (series 6), this is the thing that will take it online. It does what it says on the box, but for a wi-fi dongle this is a rip off. The only way Samsung is getting away with this is that this is the only dongle which has drivers pre-installed in your tv, so there is nothing else you can use. Yes, it will get your TV to access your DLNA content on your wifi network, yes, it is easy to set up, but you do not get full internet connectivity, the yahoo widgets give you very-very limited choice of content. If you want stuff beyond youtube, weather, news (very limited), stocks (so-so) - well, you cant. You can get flicker, but forget myspace or facebook and pretty much all else.
All in all, if you want the full functionality of your tv, you need this, but be aware, services are limited and the price is ridiculous!

3.0 out of 5 stars do you need this ? 26 May 2009
By Akunaz
Verified Purchase
After buying my samsung tv i was disappointed that it was not already wireless built in and i had to make a separte purchase to ulitise the other features of my tv. i must admit it was quite simple to use, i plugged it in and pretty much found my router.

however, not the fault of the dongle, the features of samsung internet tv are quite poor, limited and most importantly SLOW! its faster to access ceefax or freeview teletext and thats says something. youtube if anyone is interested is not yet ready and the news articles which i would be most inerested are only headings and brief 4 lines.

you can use this also for streaming media from pc to your tv via dlna which is quite smooth. but u should be aware it works only for a limited range of files and u cannot forward or rewind.

i would consider strongly before purcharsing if u really need it or can wait this they SPEED up internet tv (as they state they trying to do) and make it useful

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for LE40C750 23 Jun 2011
By Ian
Verified Purchase
I took a leap of faith really when ordering this one, I couldn't find any reliable source that would confirm this WiFi adaptor would work on my Samsung LE40C750.
So let me tell you, it does.
I'm using it with the BT Homehub 3.0 and set up was a breeze. In a few short minutes I was enjoying glorious, technicolour cinemagic from LoveFilm, direct to my TV.

So, in short I can confirm it works with the c750 series Samsung TVs (the 3D ones) and also it works with the BT HomeHub 3.0.
