Problems connecting UN55D6000SF with home wireless network

by oldandconfused / July 4, 2011 6:48 AM PDT

I have a UN556000SF TV with a WIS09ABGN Wireless Lan Adapter that I cannot get hooked up to my home wireless network.I have a D-Link N+300 Router that no other wireless device has any problem hooking up with anywhere in my home.I have worked for hours & days with Samsung Support trying to get this system to work to no avail.I have finally been told by Samsung that there is a 20 to 25 foot distance limitation between a wireless router and this TV's wireless lan for wireless internet operation.Of course there is no mention of this distance limitation anywhere in Samsung's literature that I can find.I can get the TV to recognize my wireless network when I place the TV very close to the router & it will hook up directly with the router using a patch cable.D-Link Support tells me any wireless device should work wirelessly with my router from 200 or more feet away.Has anyone else had similar problems & or been told by Samsung that there is a 20 to 25 foot distance limitation between this "wireless lan adapter" for wireless internet connectivity? <span id="INSERTION_MARKER"><span id="INSERTION_MARKER"><span id="INSERTION_MARKER">

200 feet?

That would be under IDEAL conditions. I agree that no one wants to learn all about wifi but your post sounds as if you need it to "just work."

In your case I won't write about the Cnet Networking forum sticky note and suggest you use some AV POWERLINE NETWORK kit.

In reply to: 200 feet?

I was just quoting what my router support told me concerning normal wireless distance coverage of my router.A laptop,telephone, Wii,& i touch will all recognize my network from the same placement as my TV.Additionally, my TV is recognizing a couple of my neighbors wireless networks that are across the street from me.I know wireless isn't perfect but I think this particular Samsung product has some wireless connectivity issues that are not normal & I was trying to determine if individuals other than myself were having the same problems with it.I emailed Samsung's Office of the President concerning the issue & they called me today & are suppose to call back tomorrow after they research my case further. Thanks for the info on the AV POWERLINE NETWORK kit.as it may end up as the final solution to my problem. oldandconfused

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?
