I can verify that this works with Samsung Blu-Ray players. Yay for not paying $60 bucks!

Thank you so much! I'm tired of dealing with a wire. In for 1.

Got one. Thanks! We just moved and had it hard wired before.

Good deal, the official wireless dongles are expensive, and sometimes you can buy a cheaper set w/o wifi using this connector

Thanks!!
My built-in wifi in my netbook failed recently so I've been needing one of these. 10 bucks from a quality seller is a great deal! I just hope it works with Ubuntu though the reviews on Newegg seem to indicate it does work with Linux.

Deal is still on, just purchased one for $9.99! I haven't used Netflix on my Samsung Blu-Ray player in months because I refuse to run the cable through the house. Great deal!

Just received this last night, and I cannot get my Wifi ready Samsung Blu-ray player to recognize the adapter.
What I'm doing:
Under Settings->Network only Wired shows up as an option for network type.
When I run the initial setup and try and select wireless as the default network type i get a Message box telling me to make sure it is plugged in (it is) and wont let me continue unless I select wired....
Am I doing something wrong?
Is it because i've updated the firmware a few times? Do I need to revert or something?

@crazykid1801: That's odd. It almost sounds like the you do not have a wifi ready player, but you seem to know what you have. Did you plug it in the back USB or the front? Maybe that makes a difference. You may have to do a factory restore for the settings. I don't know how to do that, but I'm sure there is a way to do it.

My Samsung UN46D6003 LED Smart tv is not recognizing this one.I went to menu-network-wireless(general)-next and it says , connect a samsung network adapter and click OK. The dongle has both lights on when plugged into the USB port behind the tv. What am I doing wrong ? I unplugged the 2 HDMI cables from the tv and tried but no use.

So, I bought the Rosewill based on these comments, but I can't get it to work on my Samsung Blu Ray Player at all. Any help?

vote-for2vote-against

I appear to be in the same boat I bought one as well for my Samsung Blue Ray BD-D5500. I plug it in and select wireless a box pops open "Samsung wireless adapter is not connected".
All help welcomed.

@wnyx585am: Seems like a lot of people are having the same issue as me. I'm posting this comment from work so I don't know the model of my blu-ray player, but I do know it is wifi ready. It has a port labeled as such (wifi ready) on the back. I've actually tried both USB ports, front and back. The rosewill adapter has both lights on and green all the time.

@crazykid1801: I connected it to a BD-C5500 model and it worked perfectly. That model is a year old or so. I am also pretty sure it works with some older models such as the BD-P1590 and BD-P1600. It may be that newer Samsung models are not compatible. I suppose it could also be that Rosewill changed something in the dongle, but that seems unlikely since it is the same model number.

There could be a possibility that the Samsung player needs a firmware update to get it to work, but that also seems unlikely. I guess there could also be a firmware update for the dongle (i'm not sure if that's even possible).

I really have no idea. I have never seen any review where someone complained that it did not work, only positive reviews that it worked.

@wnyx585am: If you look above, a few people are complaining that it did not work with their samsung products. I believe I have the BD-C5500. Up until a few weeks ago I had it plugged into the internet via a ethernet cable and I've updated it's firmware several times since I first got it. I believe it is possible that I might have to downgrade the firmware inorder for it to work. I've been to lazy to look into that possibility though. When I do find the time I will try and post my results here though.

@sirdart: Thats exactly what i'm getting I believe.

@crazykid1801: I added the dongle to my BD-C5500 player which had not had a firmware update in about a year and it worked fine. I then completed a firware update with the dongle attached and it still seemed to work fine. I have not used it much since then, but there is not a problem as far as I can tell.

Perhaps the firmware issue is only a problem when you initially connect it and you will still be able to update firmware after it is installed.

@wnyx585am:Maybe. DO you have this exact model of wireless adapter? Because i here that the RNX-N1 works too. I looked last night and I do have the BD-C550.
Maybe the wireless adapter is a dud.......I'll try it out on my PC when I get home.I received the blu-ray player last Christmas I think. Thanks for you input.

vote-for2vote-against

@crazykid1801: I think you may be right. I just realized mine is the N1. I am pretty sure I have seen some reviews saying the N100 works, but maybe I completely mixed them up. I'm sorry if the N100 does not work with Samsung.

So, my wireless adapter is not a dud, it works great on my computer. I think that this particular adapter model doesn't work with the BD-C5500. Please up vote this so people know. Judging by what @wnyx585am says, the RNX-N1 (slightly more expensive model) works with the BD-C5500. I might bring it over to my friends house, he has the same blu-ray player as me and test it out there too if I think of it.

Thanks for the useless information! :) I had bought 2 of these after the recommendations here and they do not work on samsung blurays. Since people rely on your comments to know if a deal is best suited for them please be careful before you post that you are posting correct information.

@kath0x0: As I stated before, I am sorry. The RNX-N1 should still be a good choice if you are looking for a solution for Samsung Blu-Ray players.
