Jeff
many thanks for your assistance. I have connected to the home network and the internet. My TV does not have a @Internet button on the remote so I am still following up how to bring up Samsung Apps. I have been able to upgrade my TV software.
However this is not a problem for this forum. Again thank you for your assistance

Re: connection wireless internet to samsung smart tv

Hi Darryl, Samsung TV Internet connections have a very bad reputation I'm afraid.

 

So Ffrst things first, unplug the Samsung Wireless LAN adapter and turn the TV off and then back on.

Now on your wireless modem/router, setup wireless access to use WPA2-PSK and set a passphrase that you will remember.

 

Then back on the TV, plug the Samsung Wireless LAN adapter into the correct USB port.

 

Once plugged in, you will get a pop-up message asking you if you want to use wireless network – choose yes

 

Now on the tv, press the menu button on your tv remote, go into "network" section and choose "network settings"

Choose "auto" as the connection method and "wireless" as the connection type

 

Your TV should againl search for all available wireless networks – select the SSID you set in your wireless modem/router and when prompted, enter the passphrase you set.

 

It should auto connect for you – but if it doesn't, it is possible that your TV just needs to be turned off and back on for the settings be be set properly.

 

Turn the tv off and back on, press the menu button on your tv remote, go into "network" section and choose "network status" and check if it is now connected.

What Modem Router do your have?

 

You need to go into the home page via the web for the Modem Router and in the settings check that your wireless security settings are set to WPA2-PSK .

Thank you that worked and I can see the MAC address of the TV. However where do I see the WPA2-PSK setting, I think I have looked everwhere.

Re: connection wireless internet to samsung smart tv

From memory once into the settings etc, via the homepage, you click on Home Network. that should open a page that shows your wireless network name and below the ethernet connection. You click under wireless the wording like WLAN: MyWireless etc.

 

That will then open another window for wireless Access Point and the name of your wireless netowrk, top right of page in Overview/Details and Configure, click configure.

The configuration is set to WPA+WPA2, Should I change it to only WPA2 - would this possibly effect any other devices on the network?

Re: connection wireless internet to samsung smart tv

When i now look at the network status it says i am connected to the internet. Also the TV is present in the Network display on my PC. Now how do i get a sreen up on my TV to use the internet. The TV is telling me to enter a PIN Code in my Wireless Router. How do I do this?

Re: connection wireless internet to samsung smart tv

The pin code as they call it, should be your WiFi access password for your Modem/Router, the same as you would use for connecting a laptop or mobile phone via WiFi.

 

If you haven't set a unique password/code, then it is the one that came with the modem/router, normally on a sticker on the bottom of them.

Re: connection wireless internet to samsung smart tv

Hi Daryl, glad to hear we are making progress here. I think one of the problems cvould be that this is an older TV now, they change very very quickly and so does the way various devices interact.

 

Keep us up to date on how you go.

 

As far as the kudos goes, thankyou if you click the star on the blue background on my posts, it would be much appreciated. as per pic below.

Hi IQ2

Does your particular Smart TV WiFi enabled? Or does it use an Ethernet port to provide Internet access?

Re: connection wireless internet to samsung smart tv

Have you tried manually configuring your Wi-Fi security keys into the Samsung Smart TV network settings? 

 

Alternatively, activate WPS within the modems interface (http://telstra.gateway) under Wi-Fi .
