Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toshiba Dual Band WLAN Adaptor WLM-10U2 - Network adapter - USB (Personal Computers)
Bought this for my 42VL863B as I couldn't run a network cable in my house. Other reviewers have complained about difficulty in setup and signal problems, which made me nervous, however in my case the tv is quite close to the router (2m max) so no problems with signal.

The instructions in the package aren't worth the bother, just look up your tv model on the Toshiba website [...] get the full manual and find the relevant section. Then follow the instructions from there. You will need to know the full details of your particular network before you start, but from there I didn't have any problems.

Overall had it set-up in under 10 mins and iplayer up 2 minutes later. However get your TV manual before you start!

--Edit--

As you can see on the comments on this review you must check with Toshiba (via their website and if required via direct contact with them) which adapter to use with your relevant TV. My TV manual does not clearly state which one to buy, and I had to do digging to find out that this was the correct one for my model. This is definitely something Tosh. should have sorted before shipping manuals which are vague!

I have the same tv 42VL863, but according to its manual, the required dongle is the WLM-20U2 , not the WLM-10u2...so I am surprised you stated it worked??

I had the same issue tracking it down. I'd suggest checking on the tosh website, bit it definitely works on my set!

Indeed, it is the WLM-10U2 that works (I just received this wifi dongle), so now I am stuck with a superfluous & useless WLM_20U2 dongle, thanks to Toshiba's mistake in user manual !!
