Samsung wis12abgnx wifi dongle with smart tv ue40es6100

Post by gorkys67 » Tue Aug 23, 2016 8:34 am

Is there a way to have this wifi dongle working on my ue40es6100 smart tv since internal wifi adapter is failing?
Internal wifi module stopped working - already replaced it once - and tried to use this dongle instead but when launching network config tv won't see usb adapter. Maybe disconnecting internal wifi module from motherboard will help?
Accessing service menu and changing something? Which parameter in that case?

I think you have to change value in service menu (Control-> Sub Option)

Code: Select all

[Factory] 186	NETWORK Support		3=Int-Wifi		(def:3)
[Factory]  -> 0=Not Support
[Factory]  -> 1=Cable
[Factory]  -> 2=Ext-Wifi
[Factory]  -> 3=Int-Wifi
[Factory]  -> 4=ExtOnly-Wifi

Ok so I will try and tell you. Frankly I'm a little bit afraid when messing around with service menu...Thank you very much indeed.
Do you think it will work?

No need to be afraid, just keep in mind to NEVER press left/right unless you want to change some value :)
Otherwise I think it's worth the try, even if imho the best solution in such case is to use ethernet port with some wifi/ethernet bridge you can find for much cheaper than shamefully-overpriced-guenine-Samsung-dongle.

Tried with wifi ethernet bridge I own and use with myskyhd decoder and it works recognized as cable network. I already have usb wifi dongle and I use it with samsung newer smart tv which is wifi ready only so no worry about giving it a try...
Anyway I just bought used wifi internal module on ebay for 35 euros shipping included but I wanted to know further options in case wifi module fails once more...
