How Do I Connect?

Simultaneous dual-band transmission.

Direct Ethernet Connection

The source of your internet connection in your home is a modem, which is a box sold or leased to you by your internet service provider. With a direct ethernet connection, you run a cable between your modem and your network enabled devices, like your computer or your TV. The cable transmits your internet signal. Your modem is typically located right next to your home computer, so running an ethernet cable between the two is easy. In order to connect your television, blu-ray player, receiver, or other network-enabled device directly to the modem, your modem will need to be within a few feet of your home theater setup.

Wireless Adapter

You may already have a wireless router set up in your home, or perhaps your modem is too far away from your home theater system to connect via ethernet cable. In these cases, use a wireless adapter to connect your network-enabled device to the internet. While some TV's, blu-ray players, and other components are wi-fi ready, some need the small device, which is slightly larger than a USB flash drive, to connect to the internet. It plugs into a USB input on your component and transmits the wireless signal. Devices are brand-specific, so if you have an LG TV that's network-enabled, you want to be sure to buy an LG wireless adapter to match.

Powerline Ethernet Adapter

A powerline ethernet adapter is an inexpensive method of turning electrical outlets into a home network. Connect one unit to your router or cable modem and the other unit to your outlet. The ethernet adapter uses the existing electrical wiring to transmit internet signals. Choose a unit with multiple ports, and you can plug in a computer, printer, TV, and gaming system and access the internet from each device. Heck, plug in adapters all around your house for access in every room. You're less likely to experience interference to your internet connection with a powerline adapter than you are with a wireless adapter, and it's more expandable.
