Much like cellphones, a number of LED TVs are being manufactured with built-in apps such as Netflix and Pandora. Although all these TVs can be hard-wired to your modem or router using an Ethernet cable, it is possible to link them to a Wi-Fi network using a USB dongle (sold separately). In order to take advantage of your Samsung LED TV's Wi-Fi capabilities, you must use a Samsung brand wireless dongle, as other brands are incompatible with Samsung TVs.
