terrym234,

Part of the problem may be that it doesn't have bluetooth capabilities. It will support 802.11a/b/g/n, so try connecting it to your hub that way.

sambvca,

For wireless connections, the WiseLink is the only way to wirelessly connect the television to the router that Samsung support agents can assist with. The adaptor is designed to work exclusively with the television, and I don't know of anyone who has gotten a different wireless adapter to work. There's always the option to buy the parts for a bridge, and then hook it up via ethernet, but that can be expensive and it also does require some network experience.

LN52B750U1F and LinkStick Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter

Samsung - LinkStick Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter

I tried so many stores today including BestBuy, Wal-Mart, Radio shack to find this adapter and none of the stores carry it or had in stock. They carry the TV and BlueRay player which needs it but not the adapter.

I bought Samsung - 52" Class / 1080p / 240Hz / LCD HDTV, Model: LN52B750U1F and the blue ray player, I thought one of them had wireless but after getting them delivered, found out that it is "wireless ready" not including the adapter. The only reason I picked up this expensive package is to watch Netflix, YouTube online but very disappointed. After that, I have been trying to get the adapter at local store, and cannot find it. Someone in the store (not sales rep.) told me today that it has higher return rate because of its quality, that?s why stores are not filling the stock or carrying it. I wanted try but definitely do not want to order online and play the shipping for something does not work.

I have another 5 days to find the link stick and try it out, if not I will return the package to the local store and buy cheaper ones that don?t have internet features.
Any suggestion?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
