Samsung USB Wireless Adapter......any other way??

by sobhark / July 21, 2009 1:22 PM PDT

Can I use any other adapter that will work??
I'm thinking of using only DLNA connecting it to my Mac.

The reason that I'm asking this is because that I couldn't find any store
that every know this product even existed!!
Went to the largest department store and they have no idea what I'm saying.....
Couldn't believe that T____T

So if anyone know any other way to get this work without the adapter please share.

Cheers!~~
Thanks to all in advance for the replies

I do not think there are any other USB Wireless Adapters that currently work with Samsung equipment, however there are many other solutions.

1. ~$10
Run a cable to your broadband router.

2. ~$100
Use a 'Powerline Ethernet Adapter'.

3. ~$125
Use a 'Wireless Bridge'.

4. ~$50
I use a $45 Cisco/Linksys WRT54G2 with a custom DD-WRT firmware to connect all my entertainment equipment: TV, Blu-ray, etc. (only for very advanced networking users)

As far as I know, there are very few people who have been successful at getting DLNA working with a Mac. Do you have software that you know is compatible with the television? Samsung, at this point, does not officially support a Mac DLNA software.

DLNA - Wireless - not stable

There were a discussion over at MacRumors http://forums.macrumors.com/archive/index.php/t-745430.html where I posted the following:

So I bought my 37B658 LCD with all the whistles and bells also... that might have been a mistake thinking that I could skip the AppleTV box I have sitting next to the TV.

First off all there is a latest version avail from Samsung of their PC Share Manager - Ver 2.1 is out - if you can get it to work on a PC.

On my Mac Mini 1.66 GHz Intel Core Duo running 10.5.7, I tried Rivet (2.2) and EyeConnect (1.6) in different setups - wired and wireless - yes I bought the wireless dongle also... I also tried installing the Share Manager under Virtual Box but never got any connection with the TV.

Wireless DNLA - do not go down that way. You might be lucky and get it working, I didn't. Tried two different WLAN setups (subnets) and could not get a reliable linking. So save yourself the wireless dongle and go wired.

Rivet gives errors with "unsupported file format" when trying to play/show, but album art and picture preview works ok.

EyeConnect on wire works ok. On wireless I get errors with "unsupported file format".

So what can it be used for? Sorry but it cannot replace the functionality with regards to the ATV. Can only play chunks of music that one selects, it is just so simple file oriented! That might be ok for sporadic showing of a family picture or 10, but not a whole show! After this exercise I just love my ATV.

Internet - Yahoo widgets. Yes they work wireless, except for the You Tube one. I does not show anything in any of the menu selections, the only one working is Seach, which is not so fun. Again my ATV does the job much better.

Success with DLNA on SAMSUNG-LE32B652 and a Mac
by ralfj / October 9, 2009 4:44 PM PDT

I must admit that when I first read this forum and was experiencing problems getting my shiny new TV to display content on my Mac being served via Eyeconnect, I was rather upset and wondered if I had made a mistake with my new purchase.

However having got over the frustration of finding I had to spend another
