Internet for my Panasonic tx-l42e30

by wibaki / November 4, 2013 11:37 PM PST

Hello everyone.
I recently bought my Panasonic TV tx-l42e30
I saw there are some pretty cool stuff like skype or random sports which i cant access because i need an Internet connection.I do have Internet for my PC.I also see there is a way to connect it wireless but everytime i go to do that it just doesnt work.
I am a bit new to all this and i i understand correctly i need one adapter to make this happen.Can someone explain me whats the name of this adapter and what should i go so i can connect my TV to the internet?
Thank you

I'd go back to the shop where I bought the TV and now buy a compatbible adapter. The user manual or installation guide should tell you how to install and use it.

I assume you know you need a wireless router also, to use Internet wirelessly, if your PC now is connected with a cable.

I do have a wireless router.But the TV was bought by someone else so i cant know where he bought it from.I was wondering if there is an adapter which i could order online to buy.

The user manual should tell what adapters are compatible. Then any shop (either brick or click) that has one of those might be good. I don't know, of course, what shops there are where you live and what reliable webshops you are customer of.

in 20 minutes. This is one of our least visited forums, I'm afraid.
But maybe someone will come along in the next few days.

Well i found the adapter i must use is the dy-wl10e-k.
The problem is its kinda expensive Silly
Wouldn't be possible if i found an old router i got and just connect it my TV wired?
Panasonic asks 70$ for the adapter Grin

Look up the Netgear wnce2001. I got my last one refurb at amazon.com

It's a nice standin and for power I used an USB port on the TV.
