Try this, get a Linksys Wireless-N Ethernet Bridge with Dual-Band
(WET610N). around $90
Then get a 4 port "switch" about $20
Router, to wet610N, to 4 port switch, and then 2 eithernet cables, one each going to the TV and the other device. This should also leave you with 2 more ports to connnect 2 more devices later on if you want to.
I'm NO expert, so I hope others will comment on the above bridge/switch.
We just purchased a 52" Samsung TV as well as the BD-P1600 blue ray dvd player. The TV works great and has many outstanding features (including connecting to our wireless server that has music and photo on it). We were also excited about streaming movies from Netflix. That was until we realized in we have to purchase an Samsung proprietary dongle even though it said on the box that the DVD player is "WIRELESS READY" and the guy at Best Buy did not inform us that we had to buy additional device to stream movies wirelessly. Now we have to get two dongles to take full advantage on our new TV and DVD player. That cost will be close to $200 in addition to the money we spent on Samsung TV and DVD player.
What is the alternative to using the Samsung proprietary dongles?
We are disappointed that this is how Samsung treats loyal customers.
