Ease of Use

I've never seen a network interface product that is so unreliable as to be useless. My wireless router is provided by Verizon and works with no problems with several other wireless devices including a cell phone, a laptop, a TiVo box, and a Wii game box. The configuration interface provided by my LG TV is pretty bad; while configuring the wireless interface, if the connect fails, the WEP key that was entered is lost and you have to re-enter it. To get the connection to work, I had to disable shared-key authentication on my router. Once the interface is connected, it appears to drop the connection some time later as I observed while attempting to view photos from my PC on the LG TV. I've worked with network interfaces and software for years and clearly LG needs help in this area. Don't waste your money on this; try to use an Ethernet cable connection instead.

Bought this since my 'Wi-fi ready' LG TV wasn't really ready without it. Now that I have it, I plugged it in, set it up, and can't stream a movie. Thinking it could be a setting, I called LG for support. They proceeded to tell me that my router is to slow. I explained that I wirelessly stream HD movies to my laptop all the time and that it is a brand new Linksys N Router. They then said I have too many things connected to the router. I told them I disconnected everything but the TV to make sure that wasn't the case. They then put me on hold for 25 mins. They made sure that when they were going to transfer me to another person that could help, I was disconnected. At this point I am going to try to send it back for a replacement if I don't get the run around for that. Good luck

Great price and received quickly

by E. Techie on 8/24/2010

Initially, I did not plan to connect my LG TV to the internet because the regular price was around $80 so I was waiting for the price to come down. When I saw the price at Buy.com for 48.36 with no sales tax and no shipping and handling, I had to get it right away. I received the product immediately and installed it the same day. Installing it on the TV was easy since it used the USB connection. I had trouble setting it up and got error messages each time I tried to connect to my network. After about 3 hours of trouble shooting, I decided to bring the TV next to my router and connected the TV using the cables: I had no problems. I then tried to use the wireless connection and it resolved. The problem was the unit was too far from the wireless router. I was relieved that it was not a defective product. I got some USB extension cables so that I can receive the signal. Next step, setup a Wireless N network.

Outstanding product and service!

by A customer on 9/6/2010

I bought this adaptEr in order to access Netcast on my new LG tv and other than rebooting my wireless router, it worked right away out of the box. The price can't be beat at Buy.com and I received it in good time.
