Thanks for the question. Although you did not provide any model numbers for the units you have, if your BD player has access to Netflix content, then all you would need is the Linkstick and a Netflix account. To access Netflix, you will want to connect the BD player to a wireless router with the linkstick, then connect the BD player to the TV. Although you will have access to the content the BD player offers through the TV, if you want to access internet content your TV offers, you will need to have a separate Linkstick for it.

Great question! Although it does not matter what TV you have, as long as the Samsung BD player is connected to the internet via the linkstick and wireless router, and the BD player is connected to the TV, you should have access to any content the BD player can access.

Question

Do I need to provide any information about the router or the internet connection to setup the device?

I have access to a free shared wi-fi network. I don't know anything about the router, the IP address and stuff like that. Am I supposed to provide any of these information or I can just plug it in and have it connected to the network?

Thanks for the question. When the linkstick is connected to the Samsung device, within the menu, you will have the ability to search for an available router. If the router is not shared, you can also add the addresses manually.

Thanks for the question. Since the B550 series does not offer any internet content and does not offer DLNA, the Samsung Linkstick will not be compatible.

Thanks for the question. From the information I have, the WIS09ABGNX is only compatible with the Samsung 2009 model year internet capable devices (for TVs, that would be the "B" models, the LN40A650 is an "A" model and uses a different linkstick).

Great question. The Linkstick doesn't actually load a widget on the TV, it only allows the TV to access the internet content wirelessly. If your TV offers access to internet content, you will have two ways to hook it up to the internet: either through the built in ethernet adapter or wirelessly through the Linkstick. Currently, although none of the Samsung TVs offer a direct Netflix widget to view your content; some models do offer Blockbuster on demand, Twitter and Flickr through the Yahoo! widget system.

Thanks for the question. The Samsung Linkstick is mainly used to allow internet connected units to access internet content through a wireless router. Unfortunately, the Linkstick will not allow for your rear speakers to be wireless. For this, you will need the SWA-4100 wireless transmitter (for information on ordering this, please visit your local Best Buy store).

I'm sorry, but the WIS09ABGNX is only compatible with the "B" series 2009 models that offer Internet@TV. The WIS09ABGNX will not be compatible with the LN46A750. For information on obtaining the correct linkstick, please visit your local Best Buy store.

Thanks for the question. From the info I have, the WIS09ABGNX is only compatible with the 2009 Samsung units that offer internet connectivity. That said, the BD-P1550 is not one of these units. If you are referring to the BD-P1590, then you will have access to internet content and you should be able to use the WIS09ABGNX to access the content.

I’m sorry you are having an issue with your device. Although with the information you have provided I do not have a solution for you (please make sure that within the unit's menu, under the network settings, that the option is set to "Wireless" and that there is a strong enough signal for the dongle to access); I will say that if you contact your local Best Buy's Geek Squad or 800-Samsung, they should be able to provide you with a live solution.
