●● If you have a Dynamic Network, you should use an ADSL modem or router
that supports Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Modems and
routers that support DHCP automatically provide the IP address, subnet mask,
gateway, and DNS values your TV needs to access the Internet so you do not
have to enter them manually. Most home networks are Dynamic Networks.
◀
Some networks require a Static IP address. If your network requires a Static
IP address, you must enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS
values manually on your TV’s Cable Setup Screen when you set up the network
connection. To get the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS values,
contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you have a Windows computer,
you can also get these values through your computer.
NN You can use ADSL modems that support DHCP if your network requires a
Static IP address. ADSL modems that support DHCP also let you use Static
IP addresses.

❑❑ Connecting to a Wireless Network
For PDP 550 Series
To connect your TV to your network wireless, you need a wireless router or modem
and a Samsung Wireless LAN adapter (WIS09ABGN, WIS09ABGN2, WIS10ABGN
- sold separately) , which you connect to your TV’s back or side panel USB port.
See the illustration below.

Samsung’s Wireless LAN adapter is sold separately and is offered by selected retailers,
Ecommerce sites and Samsungparts.com. Samsung’s Wireless LAN adapter supports
the IEEE 802.11a/b/g and n communication protocols. Samsung recommends using
IEEE 802.11n. When you play video over a IEEE 802.11b/g connection, the video may
not play smoothly.
NN NOTE
●● You must use the “Samsung Wireless LAN adapter” (WIS09ABGN,
WIS09ABGN2, WIS10ABGN) to use a wireless network.
◀
●● To use a wireless network, your TV must be connected to a wireless IP sharer
(either a router or a modem). If the wireless IP sharer supports DHCP, your TV
can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless network.
English
▶
●● Select a channel for the wireless IP sharer that is not currently being used. If the
channel set for the wireless IP sharer is currently being used by another device
nearby, this will result in interference and communication failure.
●● If you apply a security system other than the systems listed below, it will not
work with the TV.
●● If Pure High-throughput (Greenfield) 802.11n mode is selected and the
◀
Encryption type is set to WEP, TKIP or TKIP AES (WPS2Mixed) for your wireless
router, Samsung TVs will not support a connection in compliance with new WiFi certification specifications.
English
▶
●● If your wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), you can
connect to the network via PBC (Push Button Configuration) or PIN (Personal
Identification Number). WPS will automatically configure the SSID and WPA key
in either mode.
●● If your router, modem, or device is not certified, it may not connect to the TV
via the “Samsung Wireless LAN adapter.”
●● Ensure the TV is turned on before you connect the Samsung Wireless LAN
adapter.
◀
●● Connection Methods: You can setup the wireless network connection on five
ways.
English
▶
–– Auto Setup (Using the Auto Network Search function)
–– Manual Setup
–– WPS(PBC)
–– One Foot Connection
–– Plug & Access
●● The Samsung Wireless LAN adapter may not be recognized when using a
◀
connection via a USB hub or via a USB extension cable other than the cable
supplied.
English
▶
Notice
The picture may appear corrupted or have static for some channels when the TV
is connected to the Samsung Wireless LAN adapter. If this occurs, connect the
Samsung Wireless LAN adapter using a USB cable in a place that is not affected by
radio interference.
●● Method: Connect via an extension cable
◀
To reconnect the Samsung Wireless LAN adapter using the extension cable, follow
these steps:
1. Connect the extension cable to the USB
1 (HDD) port.
2. Connect the extension cable and
Samsung Wireless LAN adapter.
3. Attach the Samsung Wireless LAN
Adapter to the back of the TV near the
top, using double-sided adhesive tape.
English
●● The displayed image may differ depending on the model.

■■ Network Settings (Auto)
Most wireless networks have an optional security system that requires devices that
access the network to transmit an encrypted security code called an Access or
Security Key. The Security Key is based on a Pass Phrase, typically a word or a
series of letters and numbers of a specified length you were asked to enter when
you set up security for your wireless network. If you use this method of setting up
the network connection, and have a Security Key for your wireless network, you
will have to enter the Pass Phrase during the setup process.

If Your TV Fails to Connect to the Internet
Your TV may not be able to connect to the Internet because your ISP has
permanently registered the MAC address (a unique identifying number) of your PC
or modem, which it then authenticates each time you connect to the Internet as a
way of preventing unauthorized access. As your TV has a different MAC address,
your ISP can not authenticate its MAC address, and your TV can not connect.
◀
To resolve this problem, ask your ISP about the procedures required to connect
devices other than a PC (such as your TV) to the Internet.
If your Internet service provider requires an ID or password to connect to the
Internet, your TV may not be able to connect to the Internet. If this is the case, you
must enter your ID or password when connecting to the Internet.
The internet connection may fail because of a firewall problem. If this is the case,
contact your Internet service provider.
If you cannot connect to the Internet even after you have followed the procedures
of your Internet service provider, please contact Samsung Electronics
