    surprise! you MUST use the Samsung WiFi adaptor :( other devices can not be configured
    via the TV controller as the TV+Samsung WiFi adaptor are married for the configuration.

    Really TICKS me off too, as I just bought the 46" un6800 and love the Led HDTV.

    NO

    1. use the Parocial Samsung WiFi adaptor which plugs into a USB slot
    2. use a wired Ethernet RJ45 connection from a router
    3. use a Wii, Xbox or PS3 station to connect to the TV and the controllers can connect WiFi/Wired to your router

    normally
    Code:
    modem===Router---your PC systems
                 |
                 +-------->  TV Rj45

    hmm;

    connect a length of Ethernet Cable with an RJ45 plug to an empty slot on the router and the other end directly to the TV - - there's only one connection possible.

    depends upon the model; my 46c6800 has an RJ45 connector.
