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.
I would like to share my screen from my PC(Win10) to my LG TV(OLED55c11LB). Both devices are connected to the same network via Ethernet CABLE. It is not possible to connect with HDMI, devices are in diffrent rooms. When I try to find the TV on the screenshare list it's not showing up although it is visible is my network in explorer. I can easly screenshare from my phone.
I tried the customer support which resulted in nothing except reverting my TV to factory settings. Has anyone done this before? Is it even possible? I would love to be able to game with wireless mouse and keyboard on my TV.

Hi. I own C9 for ~2 years and I've been using it wired to my network. Lately I've moved to a new place and I'm unable to connect it to my home network using Ethernet cable.
In short: TV doesn't get IP from dhcpd. When I provide IP manually it won't connect also (but is listed on UniFi Cloud Key device list with that IP. Seems like Ethernet interface is not brought up by TV).
DHCPD is run on the router which is a pfSense device. When I connect TV over Wifi - it successfully obtains IP from the very same DHCP server.
I've looked into dhcpd logs on the pfSense and when TV is connected via Ethernet cable, it casts DHCPDDISCOVER, gets DHCPOFFER from the server, but then never casts DHCPREQUEST to get DHCPPACK. So I see DHCPDISCOVER & DHCPOFFER loop in the logs.
I've been suspecting there is another dhcp server in my network that LG TV is sending DHCPREQUEST to, but this is highly unlikely and I've enabled dhcpd guarding on the switch just to be sure.
In terms of hardware, comparing to my previous apartment I have a new switch here (Unifi) and new in-wall cabling (Cat 6a). I doubt switch and cables makes a difference here. TV firmware is the latest. Connection is OK (I've checked it with a network tester). Network port is OK, standard LAN VLAN. I've doublechecked everything and running out of ideas.
Any ideas / tips how to diagnoze and solve this issue?
I'd really like to have it wired instead of wirelessly connected.

I just upgraded my old Sony TV for a LG 55NANO796. The WiFi and wired ethernet speeds are not adequate to support 4K streaming over Internet. I installed a FTTH 900meg service with intention of streaming 4KHD TV, stream is pausing every minute or so for 3-5s while download catches up. TV is very close to a WiFi mesh AP with RJ45 socket, WiFi and cable speeds on TV webOS are similar, ping of 40ms, 16Meg down and 95M upload. I'm measuring speed with Speedtest.net. I connected Raspberry Pi4 media Centre (£35) and got 7ms & 110M up and down from same AP connection. LG have clearly underspeced the Ethernet buffer for 4K streaming.
