Connecting the LinkStick Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter
The first step to connecting the LinkStick is to verify that a compatible device is available to accept it. Compatible devices include Samsung Series 630, 650 an 6000 LCD, plasma, and LED high definition televisions or a BDP12xx, BDP32xx, BDP72xx or BDP8200 Blu-ray disk player. LinkStick buyers should check the user guide of their Samsung device to verify compatibility prior to making a purchase.
Similarly, shoppers purchasing an HDTV or Blu-ray player with the intention of connecting to their network and/or Internet should verify before leaving the store that their purchase is compatible with LinkStick.
Connecting the LinkStick to a compatible Samsung television or Blu-ray player is just as easy as inserting a USB into a port on a computer. After all, the LinkStick is similar to the USB style wireless adapters with which many computer users are already familiar.
Similar to an adapter connected to a computer, the biggest challenge is connecting the adapter to the wireless LAN. Complications may arise when searching for the network and entering the WPA security code in the television's settings menu. Those challenges are therefore not unique to the LinkStick.
Discovery problems could occur if a wireless router has its SSID broadcast turned off, for example. Also the wireless router's security code could be forgotten. in these and other cases, Samsung owners should always verify their router's settings should the television with the LinkStick installed has difficulty finding the network.
