Wi-fi Range extender for LG Smart TV


I have purchased a LG Smart TV but it requires a wifi dongle specially manufactured by LG to connect to internet. This wifi dongle cost around Rs.4000/- which I think is not worth it. I was just thinking if I could buy a wifi extender and connect it to the TV using the LAN port in the wifi extender which I would place near the TV. Another advantage is that it has 4 LAN ports and later I can also connect other items like Blu-ray player, Xbox etc... in case required. Would this work?

I also identified a router/wifi extender in ebay.

Re: Wi-fi Range extender for LG Smart TV

The router you selected has Ethernet ports and not gigabit, if you are buying one time better buy a gigabit port router

If you can make this your internet router directly by connecting the internet wire / modem then you do not need a wireless bridge.

If not then Wireless Bridge is the option to go for you where the Bridge will connect to your main internet router wirelessly.

Re: Wi-fi Range extender for LG Smart TV

ebay seller has this router for less price and I also have a 10% coupon which could bring down the price further. Here is the link-

Asus RT-N10+ Wireless N Router With Repeater Mode 150Mbps 4-in-1 High Speed WIFI | eBay

I hope this would work with LG TV assuming that LG would not have complicated it by making only the USB dongle work with the TV. The TV has a LAN port so I just need to connect this router with RJ45 cable to the TV and since I already have a wireless network the signal would be picked up by the Asus router/repeater and the LG TV would get connected to the internet.
Hope I got this correct or I am I missing anything.
