    Do you have Windows Media Player 10 or above? This product supports Digital Rights Management which means if the version of Media Player is below 10, or it for some reason thinks that you don't have a license for some content, that content will not stream.

Do you have another wireless system in your house, may sure both of them or not on the same channel it will cause interference, then be sure to up your media player to wmp 11 it will have all the gagetry you need, ps if you have a firewall installed you may wanna check that also to see if its blocking the software communicating to and from your wireless device.

Driver for wis12abgnx/xec

Assuming you can get the driver (which comes as a file, i.e. software, not hardware) how would you install it on your TV ?

According to the 'Technical Information' link on the Web page that you can access via the link I attached with my answer, your adapter is compatible with WiFi-ready Samsung TVs and AV equipment produced between 2010 and 2012. If your TV is not a WiFi-ready Samsung TV or is one produced before 2010, well....If it is a Samsung TV produced after 2012, it probably has WiFI built-in, in which case you don't need any wireless LAN adapter, Samsung or otherwise and the TV did not recognize the adapter because the USB port on the TV that you plugged the adapter in is meant to be used for other devices, e.g. flash drives or portable hard drives.

I found what looks like a usb/flash drive,except on the back says 'receiver". It also has a green light on front. Does nothing when plugged it into my computer. What is it?

Hard to say without having a picture of it. But most likely what you have is a wifi wireless network adapter either for a PC or a AV equipment like TV or DVD. It will work only when you have the correct driver installed on your pc. A bit different if AV wireless adapter as these are pre-programmed and you will need to know for which equipment it is compatible. A brand name or model number printed on the device would help find what it is.
