Hello. I am new to the forums and hope that I put this question in the right place. I have a 52" Samsung LCD LN52A750 and just bought a Linksys WRT400N router. I can already see pics, mp3's, etc. from my PC on the TV by networking through a LG BD390 Blu-ray player. Now I would like to be able to use the TV to surf the internet, etc. using it like a second monitor.

I will purchase the Samsung WIFI Dongle to give the TV WIFI connectivity. Is there a way to connect the PC to the TV using WIFI? Is there software or something that I need to make this work?

Any help here is greatly appreciated!
-Jason

Just pick up a DVI/HDMI (or VGA depending on your pc's video card) cable from Monoprice.com and hook it up from your pc to your tv, and configure your pc to enable the second monitor.

You can't wifi to your tv a video signal. Though you could get a wireless HDMI setup but thats a LOT more expensive.

You can use windows media player to push video to a WiFi player. I can use a app called connected media for my windows phone to push video, picture, or music to a WiFi player (tv). The Sony Brava collection have this Feature built it.
