I have a Samsung Plasma TV, Series 4+ model.   The User Manual refers to the wireless dingles available to connect the TV to the internet, but doesn't specifically state which models are compatible.

When I go through the on-screen settings, the Network Settings Menu is highlighted as available, and clicking on it brings up the usual DNS/router/password type fields, and will start searching for a netwrok.  Cancel out of that and a message says that before searching for a wifi connection I have to insert the Samsung wifi USB dongle.

So, (1) does this mean I could use the wifi dongle, or (2) the Manual and Firmware simply covers a lot of TV models including those that can't use the wifi dongle?

I cannot yet locate a specific statement on Samsung's site/s stating which models are compatible.

R.

What's the exact model number of your TV?

Looking around, it doesn't seem like there is wifi support for this TV model. But what were you wanting WiFi for? I'm pretty sure this isn't a "Smart TV".
