WiseLink wireless connection

by HDTV_Lover / December 14, 2008 8:56 AM PST

For the 650 does the USB-to-wireless dongle that's needed for wireless connection to the home network need to be Samsung's specific product (WIS-08BGX)? Would a 'generic' Linksys USB-to-wireless device work?

LinkStick..

HDTV_Lover,

I've personally expirimented with them, and I haven't found one that does work. If someone has found one, that'd be great information to share, but at this point, I don't know anyone who has.

Also, the wireless feature is for the InfoLink functions only.

Wireless using Linksys Access point

I suppose the reason other wireless USB adapters don't work is because Samsung Link Stick USB adapter driver is embedded in the firmware. I'm quite sure a wireless access point (e.g. Linksys) would work, because it connects using standard RJ45 Ethernet port and does not require a device driver. Most wireless routers in the market can be configured as access point and lot of people may have a spare wireless router if they upgraded their routers recently. I'll try that out and let you now the result.
