    Thanks for the help !

    Can you be more specific re: the wireless router? I have to cover 40'. Is there a preferred one to cover that distance?


  • cookery2004 Dec 25, 2008

    Yes, I have broadband, only one PC. I have only a wired one, will pick up a Netgear wireless. Thank you *very much.*

    Hi again,

    A follow-up to advice given here:

    I have found two Netgear WGR614s: one is in a white box, the other, a yellow (and presumably a later model, v.6). There is a note on the front of the yellow box, "5 times faster than 802.11" which, I believe, describes the content of the white box.

    Also, the yellow box indicates 'G', not sure I'm seeing that on the white box. Is there an appreciable difference? Should I choose one over the other or is it irrelevant?

    Thanks in advance,

Yes, it connects directly to your TV with a choice of cables - check their site for a description of your options there.  And if you have a wireless network (router) it will connect to the internet through that, so you don't need to have a cable running back to where your computer is.

    You have broadband internet service at this point, right?  Is it hooked up to more than one computer or does the wire just go straight from the modem into your computer?

    I'm just trying to make sure that you know what I mean about a router, since you may have one already.  All you need is an inexpensive router that runs wireless G.  Something from Netgear for example - you can pick up a WGR614 at bestbuy for $45, less if ordered online. Should be perfectly adequate.

    But you do need to have high speed internet (broadband) service already, and if you're sharing that among more than one computer you might even have a wireless router already.

  • MarkB1000 Dec 25, 2008

    You're welcome - and by the way, that's the router I've used for quite some time now and it's been rock solid, works great.  There are newer models out there of course, but I don't think you'll gain anything with the Roku by spending more.  Just make sure to enable the wireless security unless you don't mind neighbors using your internet!  

  • MarkB1000 Dec 26, 2008

    Either one will be fine - if there's a price difference get the cheaper one.  If they're the same, get the v6.  I just checked out the specs on what that means, and it will have no effect on the roku player.

Did you set up a network connection (wired or wireless) to your home network on your TV ? Without that connection you will not get Netflix on your TV. Please read the instructions on how to do that in your User Guide/Manual.

Watch netflix with samsung TV

Hi , It is easy to have bbc iplayer or UK or US netflix on Samsung smart TV and watch it outside the UK or US
there are two way to do , one is using DNS ,, but no recommended because it blocked occasionally, so the best way is use reliable VPN provider which you can get from this link
you can get the account and pay for one month 10 $ or one Year 100 $ VPN + smart DNS , also you can ask for refund if not work for you so you are in safe side!

after getting your account ready , you need VPN Router , and technology of VPN better should be openvpn it is faster more stable than pptp or l2tp because it reconnect if even your main connection drop and restored
once your VPN router is ready , just reset your samsung TV to factory default , you can go to TV manual and do it
connect your TV directly to the VPN Router for your reference connection should be like below
Main Internet Router -----> VPN Router ------> TV
restart your TV and live it for 30 minutes ! vola you will see netflix , Pandoora , Spotify will apear on TV apps , just enter your user name password of netflix and start enjoying it !!! let me know if this helps?

Connect roku tv to Sony Trinitron

The roku has a cable that you can connect to those 3 plugs. Take the HDMI cable back and give the salesman a piece of your mind. Once your roku is set up you can watch much more than NetFlix.
