I believe you can read through the user reviews @ Amazon for this particular model, or a sister model, to learn about which ones have worked besides the pricey Panny dongle. Sorry I don't recall the exact make/model, but it was something that was priced between $20-30, if I am remembering the discussion accurately. Will check when I have time later if you don't find one...
The other option would be to utilize a second wireless router (if you have one laying around), and configure it to function as a wireless bridge. You would connect an ethernet cable from the HDTV to this wireless bridge, which connects to your wireless network.
First i must say CNET has been very helpful whenever i need to purchase electronics, kudos to them. ever opportunity i get i promote CNET.
My questions is are there an alternate to the WI-Lan module dongle for Panasonic TV (TC-L42E50). the recommended part is TY-WL20 but is a little expensive for me. The TV is not close enough to use a wired connection.
Someone please help! I have had good luck on this forum so far. Thanks in advance.
