I've got a Samsung BluRay player and the instructions say you must use this exact Samsung adapter for the player, but I can't see why it shouldn't work on any other BR. I use it wirelessly and can't imagine why it would be brand specific, unless there's some sort of proprietary algorithm. I'd ask the geeks at BB for that answer, though.

Thanks for asking a question on Bestbuy.com. The WIS09ABGNX is the same device as the WIS09ABGN. The extra "x" at the end is just part of the full model number. If you intend to use the internet connectivity on both your Samsung BD player and your Samsung TV, you will need two separate Linksticks. You will also need a wireless router for the linksticks to connect to (the router should be connected to the internet directly as well).

I would be happy to answer your question. From the information I have, you will need to use either the Windows Media Player or the Samsung PC Share Manager (mainly on Winxp) to be able to share your content with Samsung devices that offer PC streaming. Samsung can not guarantee that iTunes will be able to stream content to the Samsung devices.

Question

WIS09ABGNX Samsung Samsung LinkStick Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter

I wrote 4 days ago "Will this work with the Samsung LN52A850 TV? Their site says it does and other people say it wont.
Thanks. Your answer was - "I'm sorry, but the WIS09ABGNX is only compatible with the 2009 "B" model Samsung TVs. For information on the compatible Linkstick for your unit, please visit your local Best Buy store." Now this person wrote in "
Does the new n version of this linkstick support the LN46a850?

Samsungs site says it supports the LN52a850 not sure why it wouldn't support the 46. Your answer - "Great question! From what I can tell, it should still work with the 46" model of the A850. The size of the screen shouldn't matter since all the internals about basically the same within the same model line." Now something here doesn't seem right does it!!!!! How about the right answer now..

I'm sorry for the long delay in answering your question. As stated in many other answers on BestBuy.com, the WIS09ABGNX linkstick is only compatible with the 2009 "B" model TVs and 2009 Blu-Ray Players. I have confirmed and reconfirmed this. I'm sorry for the confusion, and I will do my best to correct any inconsistencies in the messaging.

I would be happy to answer your question. Since there is no physical way to transfer data through HDMI or network connections between two or more devices, you will need a separate Linkstick for each individual internet capable device. Mind you, this is not a Samsung limitation, but a limitation of the technology it self (current versions of HDMI do not support internet sharing). That said, I can not advise you as to which device should have the internet connection since each Samsung internet connected device offers different features that may or may not be beneficial to you.

I would be happy to answer your question. Unfortunately, none of the Samsung devices offer USB to PC connectability. Although with some units you can connect a USB storage device to the unit and play movies, mp3s and photos directly on the Samsung device, you will need to connect your PC through a home network to be able to access shared files.

Thanks for the question! Although I can not guarantee that the Linkstick will be completely compatible, if the Apple Airport accepts a standard wifi signal (802.11 ABGN), then the Samsung Linkstick should be able to connect to the router. That said, the Samsung PC Share Manager Software that is included with your TV is not Mac compatible.
