Will a Plugable USB Adapter work on a wifi only Samsung Smart TV USB port to make it hard wired?

Will the Plugable USB 2.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Network Adapter (http://plugable.com/products/USB2-E1000) or the Plugable USB 2.0 to 10/100 Fast Ethernet LAN Network RJ45 Adapter (http://plugable.com/products/USB2-E100) work on the USB port of my Samsung TV. It does not come with a LAN input and it is set up to only connect to the internet wirelessly via a Samsung - LinkStick Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter. I would love to have it hard wired for a better connection. Is this even possible?? I am actually using an off brand by Rosewill USB. The TV is in a location where the wifi signal is greatly affected because it is basically closed in. (fits inside an opening in the wall) I hope this makes sense? :slight_smile: Thank you


Thank you for contacting Plugable support! I’d be more than happy to assist you.

Unless Samsung has added driver support for our adapter, it will not work. You will need to contact Samsung to see what networking products the TV supports. It may only accept Samsung approved devices.

Please don’t hesitate to let us know of other questions.

Thanks again for contacting Plugable support and best wishes!
