LG wireless adapter, 47LV5500

by Normmm22 / February 17, 2012 4:08 AM PST

I recently purchased a display model LG tv. It had everything except for the wireless adapter. I saved $500 by buying open box, so I figured it wouldn't be a big deal to purchase the adapter separately.

Given the lessons so far. Only LG parts for that.

But one could use any wireless bridge and connect the bridge to the ethernet port.

It's a common device and I'm going to defer to the maker and seller for support.

Wireless issue with LG
by MsMLucas / August 18, 2014 3:53 AM PDT

I also purchase an LG 47LV5500 out of box and did not receive a wireless adaptor. I do have an LG blue ray player with an adaptor and this is how I watch Netflix. At the time I purchased the TV wireless wasn't a want. Now I want to add LG apps so I can stream from my Amazon prime account and cannot seem to do this thru the Blue ray player. Can this wireless adapter work on the TV? Or am I going to have to buy a Roku or other device? I have an LG Network Blue Ray Disc Player BD640.

Amazon Prime access on LG TV

Thank you for the suggestion. I actually did have the LG wireless adaptor, but after several failed attempts to connect to my wifi I gave up. Will check out Fire TV definitely!

Most of these can use a wired connection.

As that's a good way to test if the TV can do all this, I test wired and if it works look at something like the Netgear WNCE2001.

HOWEVER LG is pretty spooky about their Smart TV and never did give a good response to

To me LG's silence on this was all I needed to advise turning off the smart bit.
