I bought the AN-WF500 Bluetooth Dongle thinking I could use it with BT headphones to watch TV at night. Found out it doesn't work with Bluetooth headphones, only LG Sound Sync audio devices. I thought OK LG, you hooked me, I'll spring for a pair of LG Sound Sync headphones, but then I find LG doesn't make any. Finally, there's no headphone jack on my LG 39LB5800. I have several older flat screen tv's around the house and all of them have a headphone jack. Very disappointed LG!

Easy setup works great when it gets a signal

      Comments about LG Wi-Fi USB Adapter:

      This wifi dongle borders on useless. I have an LG tv that is about 20 feet from my router but each time I turn on the TV it takes minutes before it connects to the wifi signal either 2.4GHz or 5GHz. Most times I have to go to the setup and force it to connect. Sometimes it takes 4 or 5 tries before it makes the connection. We have many devices in this home and none of them have issues connecting. Once the dongle connects, it works great. I think it's only dropped connections once or twice in the past year. Getting it to connect is the issue.

          Comments about LG Wi-Fi USB Adapter:

          We had a router/modem hooked up to TV by ethernet, worked great. We had to bring the router up to the office. The LG WiFi USB adapter brings a wireless internet signal to the TV and it works pretty good for Netflix but MLB Baseball freezes alot and switching to the visitor's broadcast rarely works, it usually kicks you off. We have COX High Speed internet so can't blame it on the internet speed.

                    This dongle works with the new 2014 model LG Smart TV! It was easy to set up and received the Wi-Fi signal right away. FYI -- The booklet that came with our new 2014 LG Plasma TV (model 50PB6600)says to purchase the wrong dongle (AN-WF100 -- an earlier model). It didn't work, so I had to return it and purchase this one from ABT. At this time, ABT appears to be the only company that has this brand new LG Wi-Fi dongle available.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    The dongle arrived quickly and in excellent condition. It was very easy to set up and I didn't need any assistance from customer service. Thank you!

                        Simple device to use. Just plug it in and it finds your network. Assume price is average for device.

                        Works OK on WEP or open system; WPA2 whammies it

                        By 

                        from Wickenburg, AZ

                        Comments about LG Wi-Fi USB Adapter:

                        Wasted 90 minutes today at a customer site attempting to figure out why his LG smart TV kept claiming it couldn't connect through our network because the "DNS wasn't working properly," or when it did, why it would stall attempting to load services such as Netflix or Hulu. Finally determined that the adapter was fine handling unencrypted or WEP signals from the customer's router, but when presented with a WPA2-PSK/AES connection it apparently didn't have the computational chops to keep up, and instead flung blame all over everything else. Unit documentation claims it will handle "64/128 bit WEP, WPA, WPA2, TKIP, AES, WPS (PIN, PBC)," but this one sure didn't.
