SAMSUNG PN50B650 AND WIRELESS WIS09ABGN

by barrysam78 / December 1, 2009 12:57 PM PST

I just purchased this tv and the wireless WIS09ABGN.TV works great but does not recognize the WIS09ABGN and it will not let me access the network cable to wireless selection. The WIS09abgn works fine on my Samsung Blue Ray player and is suppose to be the same for my TV model. Does anyone know how I can get this to work on my TV, please!
Thanks for any help. The TV was made in May of 2009 and I have updated the firmware to the latest one from the Samsung website.My Blue Ray player is model BD-P1590.

barrysam78,

Are you inserting the dongle while the television is on? Do you get any message?

yes I inserted it in when the TV was on and received no messages, i.e., found new hardware, etc. However, when I put it in my Blue Ray player it recognized it right away and allowed me to do the set up, etc.
Any suggestions?
I was going to try and hook it up with a cat 5 wire and see if this would allow me to change the network from cable to wireless.

Thanks for the help

barrysam78,

It should detect it as you insert the LinkStick into the USB port. So I would agree that there is something going on with the set. If you hook it up with a Cat5, it will likely initialize and Wireless will remain off.

The other "wireless" option I can think of is to get a bridge and then hardwire the bridge receiver into the back of the television. On occasion, some owners aren't able to acquire a LinkStick due to region, but find that a wireless bridge is a good way to solve the problem.

Just an idea, but then again, if you want the LinkStick to work, it may require service on your TV - which would be covered under the manufacturer's warranty. Without hesitation, I would say that yes, it should detect it, and if it doesn't, there may be something wrong with the port or something on the internal board.

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?
