A few things to check.

Be sure this is the right adapter.

Next, it's incorrect this connects to your computer. It first connects to your wifi router and then your computer might show up if there is some DLNA server software. It's all a bit complex but let's take it one step at a time.

paracken,

The 2008 (A Series) televisions need the WIS08ABxx linkSticks. Unfortunately, production has stopped on those and the WIS09ABGN ones work only for 2009 and 2010 products at this time.

The one you have is not supported for your TV. The best I can offer is to get a wireless bridge or a gaming adapter that would allow you to connect to your televisions Ethernet port. (Pro-Tip: if you go this route, buy one from the same manufacturer as your router - then you can get assistance getting it connected without bouncing between router and bridge companies).

I'm sorry for the trouble, but I hope you can get it working correctly with that solution.

paracken,

A different USB adapter will not work.

I suggested the bridge, since there is an option to connect with Ethernet, and a bridge would allow an Ethernet connection, since the USB is not available.

I would like to point out that your TV (2008 model) does not do DLNA via WiFi. Even if you do find a 3rd party USB adapter that the TV recognizes (there have been reports on this Forum that those devices do exist), the only thing your TV can do wirelessly is InfoLink - it will get weather, news and stocks information. That's it!

If you actually want to connect your TV to your network and stream pictures and videos from your PC, Wireless bridge is your only option.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
