How to Connect a Samsung Dongle to an LED TV

Updated February 21, 2017

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.

Plug the Samsung USB wireless LAN adaptor into any of the USB ports on the back of your Samsung LED TV.

Switch on the TV and press the "Menu" button on the remote control.

Select the "Settings" or "Setup" option.

Select "Wireless Network Setup" and select "Internet Protocol Setup" from the list of options.

Select the "Auto Setup" option.

Tip

Your Samsung LED TV may prompt you to select an access point and enter a password to access the network. Talk to the person who set up your home Wi-Fi network to get the network name and password.

Warning

Not all Samsung LED TVs are Internet connectible. Although Wi-Fi set-up is generally the same for all Samsung TVs, there may be slight variations in the menus of different models.
