Samsung TV and Internet Access

by rwilabee / December 15, 2008 10:44 AM PST

I have a Samsung TV which has a Cat5 connection to get to the internet. I have a Wireless router in another room. I can't run a Cat5 cable from the Wireless router to the Samsung TV. Is there something I can put close to the Samsung TV and connect to the Cat5 cable input on the TV that would talk to the Wireless router in another room which would give me internet access on the TV.

Do I need to connect it to my computer first to set it up or can you do it remotely.

Define "remotely."

I set it up with my laptop at the remote location and it's working fine. In fact I'd call it super for that price.
