A:AnswerHAHA I found the 'official' answer hilarious. The real reason no others will work (and I bet there are hacks out there that do allow them to work) is because Samsung would like you to pay $80 for a Samsung Wireless Connector instead of buying one for $15 or $20 from a third party. DUH!
A:AnswerI'm sorry for the confusion, however the WIS09ABGNX should be compatible with the BD-C5500. As stated in the BD-C5500's manual, "Use only the optional Samsung wireless LAN adapter with this player. (Model name: WIS09ABGN)." The WIS09ABGNX (the added "X" indicates its a Best Buy product) unit sold here at Best Buy should work with out an issue.
A:AnswerThe linkstick wifi adapter is only needed if you want to wirelessly connect your device to a wireless router to access internet content. If you already have a wired connection to your BD player or a wireless connection set up (depending on BD player) then you will not need to use the linkstick to access Netflix.
A:AnswerDepends on what you want to do. If you need to stream Netflix movies, then just one (for the Blu-ray DVD player) is enough. If you also want to use TV Widgets (available on some TVs), then you'd need the stick for the TV.
You don't need the sticks to connect from DVD player to TV.
A:AnswerThanks for the question. You are correct. As long as the BD player is a Samsung Blu-Ray player that offers internet content playback (Netflix, Pandora, etc.), you can have the BD player connect to a wireless home router that is connected to the internet and then connect the BD player to any TV to view said internet content.
A:AnswerGreat question! Although I may not have the model numbers of the units in your possession, I can give you a quick breakdown on how you can connect your system up to the internet to receive internet content. First, you will need to make sure that both your Samsung TV and BD player offer internet content connectivity (either internet@TV or Infolink on the TVs, Netflix and Pandora on the BD players). Once it has been determined you have these features, you will need separate Linksticks for each unit (so in this case, two linksticks, one for the TV and one for the BD player). Once connected to the devices, it is time to pair your TV and BD player to a wireless router (for info on this, please refer to the owners manual). At this point you are almost ready to stream content from your PC or from the internet. For PC streaming, you will need to install the Samsung PC Share Manager software that should have come with your TV. Once installed and you have all the media you want to share setup through the Manager, you should be able to access these files from the TV. For internet content, you will first need to have an account active with the media providers (Netflix, Pandora, BlockBuster on-demand, Youtube, Twitter, etc.) to be able to use their respective widgets. Once an account is set up, you can input your username and password into the widgets, and start viewing the internet content. Please note, all content is aggregated through the Yahoo! widget system on the TVs. There is no actual browser on either the TVs or BD players. Also, please remember that in order to access internet content and PC media, your TV needs to have this feature already included since the Linkstick will not add these features.
