Nope. All it does is make your BD player wireless so you can use whatever service it supports. Mine supports Blockbuster, Netflix and Pandora. And that's all it does.

Currently, none of the Samsung devices support true internet browsing. Once connected, the Samsung Linkstick will allow you to access internet content via either the already preloaded Yahoo! widget system or RSS feeds through Infolink on the Samsung TVs; or directly through Netflix and Pandora on the Samsung BD players only.

Is this device compatible with WPA-2 Personal encryption? These days running an unsecured network is asking for trouble.

Yes it is. I have it running on a WPA-2 PSK and it runs flawlessly. Also tried it on AES, which also worked fine.

The Linkstick does not actually have the ability to input a password or other settings on it. That said, all the settings needed to connect to a network are built into your Samsung DLNA/Internet ready device (TV, BD player, Home Theater System). These devices are compatible with the following security protocols: 1) Authentication Mode : OPEN, SHARED, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
2) Encryption Type : WEP, TKIP, AES

Great question! Since the Samsung BD players are the only units in Samsung's current line that offers Netflix compatibility, then yes, you will just need one Linkstick to connect your BD player to an internet connected wireless router for movie streaming. That said, if you want to access internet content from your TV (if your TV offers internet content) then you will need two linksticks.

TV brand doesn't matter. The brand and model of BD player you have does. All it does is make your BD player wireless. Not the TV.

The Samsung Linkstick is only designed to work with the Samsung products (TVs, BD players, HTIBs). The Linkstick will not work with other 3rd party devices.

The LinkStick is for a BD player. As far as I know, that's the only device it will work with. TV model is not relevant for this device. You don't need a router to make the BD player wireless unless you hook up your player with a wired connection via a network cable.

The Samsung Linkstick is designed to connect directly to a WiFi router that has an internet connection attached to it. That said, if the Attuverse 3800HGV-B is a wifi router as well, then the Linkstick should connect to it for internet access. If it is only a gateway for internet and TV signal broadcasting, and does not offer a wifi router built in, then you will need a second wifi router connected to your internet modem for internet content access on your TV.

Absolutely! On the B6000, it will give you access to InfoLink and on your P1600 it will give you access to Netflix. However, you will need two separate Linksticks in order to connect both your devices up and to access all content available.

You can use the PS3 to get online and feed the TV. An "internet ready" TV needs to be plugged into Ethernet (LAN) cable for direct connection or a wireless adapter picking up a router plugged into the LAN.

The only way to receive an internet signal to your Samsung Internet@TV TV is by either connecting the TV directly to a wired router, or use this Linkstick (WIS09ABGNX) to connect wirelessly. The TV does not have the ability to "share" or receive a shared internet connection from a secondary device like the PS3.

The WIS09ABGNX will only be compatible with the P1590 and higher models that offer internet content connectivity. The P1500 is not compatible.

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; 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.

First, you would need to have wireless capabilities in your home. You would need to get a wireless router and hook up either to a laptop or desktop. Make sure you jot down the SSID number and the password because you will need those items in order for you to have the Samsung 2.0 Linkstick to work.

If you have a wireless router in your home, all you have to do is to first turn on your Blu-ray player. Next, take the Samsung Linkstick wireless adapter and plug it into the back of the blu-ray player. Within a few seconds, the blu-ray player will ask you if you want to use the player wirelessly, the answer is yes.

Next, the TV screen will show you parts of the SSID address from your wireless router.

You are almost there, the last thing to do is to input your password. Once, you do that, it will be smooth sailing.

The next thing to do is to go back to the main screen of the blu-ray player. Let's say for example you want to access Netflix, click on the Netflix tab from the blu-ray player and Netflix is going to ask you to input a code which you will need to do from your computer. Just access the activation area of Netflix, access the code and watch the blu-ray player do its thing. The same thing applies to all other programs from the blu-ray player. Good luck.

If you connect your Linkstick to the Samsung BD player P-1600, you should have access to Netflix and Pandora once the internet connection is made. Unfortunately, with the information you have provided I do not have a solution for you. I will say that if you contact service at 800-SAMSUNG or contact your local Best Buy's Geek Squad, they should be able to provide you with a live solution.
