gigabit ethernet on smart TV


Question

Hello,

Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 

Kind regards,

But he is talking abort streaming local content, it is not unlikely to be much higher bandwidth: look at the blue ray standard:  link hidden, please login to view I LOVE my OLED and WebOS, b

4K only needs 25mbs. Works fine on my C7.

Absolutely agree. The market for people streaming local content at higher bandwidth than 100Mbps is very slim, and if you deducts the pirates I believe it approximates zero. So LG probably d

I bought the Cable Matters RJ45 adapter as linked (https://www.amazon.de/Cable-Matters-3-0-Super-Netzwerkkabel-RJ45-Gigabit/dp/B00BBD7NFU/) for my LG B6, but I have not been able to get a connection. I plugged it into the USB port on the side, it says "Unknown device is connected", the adapter's blue light is on as well as the green ethernet light, but none of the TV apps get an internet connection. I have tried turning on and off the WiFi, plugging and unplugging, and restarting the TV but to no avail. I'd really like to be able to get the Gigabit ethernet to work, so I can stream high bitrate content to the Plex app. What am I doing wrong - has anyone been able to make it work on LG OLED55B6V?

I'm in the same boat with my LG 65UH7700 (bought in 2017). Seems to me that the USB adapter is getting the power it needs and is communicating with the network, but the OS doesn't seem to recognize that it can use that device for an internet connection. 

Any hope here?

Dear gents,

I can happily confirm that the Cable Matters adapter works flawlessly on the 2019 OLED55C9PLA model, plugged into a usb 2.0 port. LG decided to drop USB 3.0 but, even plugged into a USB 2.0 port, it performs better than the LAN port. With the network cable plugged into the LAN port, and a 40+ GB  BluRay movie, i would get buffering every 2 seconds (using DLNA with the SmartShare app installed on my PC). Plugged in the adapter into a 2.0 port, "unknown device connected" and everything works! Netflix, Prime, updates, etc. I do not have wifi configured, it shows wired disconnected and wireless disconnected.

Any recomendations which USB to Gigabit Ethernet adapter would work with an older LG TV model? (LG 43UJ630V-ZA)

I bought this specific one and didn't work on my LG Tv. 

link hidden, please login to view

It worked on my PC and SteamLink just fine. Connection established normally.

Any help?

I don't know if it helps but these are the protocols that my TV support for Ethernet i guess. All of them 802.11.

And most of the USB to Ethernet adapters i checked are 802.3 or 802.2. I found an adapter in my country which has the protocols of my TV named on it.

It's brand is chinese named but doesn't really bother me? Should i go for this one adapter?

IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n
1000 Mbps

looks like your tv is from 2017, not that much old. my 55uh850v is from 2016.

try cable matters adapter on page 1. it works perfectly on my tv so it can work with your tv too like the others.

Hi. One more question as i ordered cable matters adapter and it's on it's way. Do you use it on your USB 3.0 port or standard 2.0 ports? If on 3.00 can you try Usb 2.00 and report if it works as my TV has only Usb 2.00 ports. Thanks again in advance.

i tried all ports and all works. now it's connected to 3.0.

i have only one annoying thing with this connection type. i am using lg smartshare as a dlna server and "photos and videos" app on tv for watching things. sometimes that "photos and videos" app couldn't find my pc. than i have to click multiple times to refresh button from top right, close the app and reopen the app. other things works perfectly like plex, iptv, youtube etc.

Good to know that it works on Usb 2.00 ports too. Fingers crossed.

Unfortunatelly it doesn't work. 

Plugged it on my LG and it says Unknown usb Device connected. But no internet connection. All LED lights on Cable Matters work fine and works normally.

Works on my PC and Steam Link device though.

Will look for a Tv Box which can handle 4K ULTRA HD Playback and HDR with android i guess. No money for the ultima Nvidia Tv Shield :(

very interesting. if led light works fine, it should work too. if you just look tv options, yes it said there is no internet connection but it can. did you check connected device list on your modem?

nvidia shield is perfect solution for everything. my suggestion is; try to save money for a few months and buy it. don't waste your money for other devices.

It doesn't get recognized on my router. Gave it some time but still nothing. 

Already order Xiaomi Mi S Box.
