Default Connecting my Samsung TV to computer wirelessly

I have a Samsung LN46C630 LCD television. I often connect my laptop to this TV using * HDMI cable * to browse internet, stream movies and so forth.

I have wireless high-speed network in my house. Is there a way I can connect the laptop to the Samsung TV wirelessly?

I have heard of many options including getting a Samsung/third-party dongle or adapter, using a second wireless router, etc. However most seem to focus on using Widgets or Apps for Netflix, Hulu, etc. I am less interested in those & more interested in using my LCD TV as a wireless monitor for the laptop.

Which is the best & easiest option to achieve this? Can the forum gurus please advise.

Thanks
Carol

Essentially Intel made this possible with a technology called WiDi.

But unless your laptop is supported by Intel here...: Intel® Wireless Display

Then it won't really be easy.

Newegg.com - NETGEAR PTV1000 Push2TV - TV Adapter for Intel Wireless Display – compatible ONLY with WiDi enabled laptops

The above link is what you would buy IF your laptop was supported.

There are options like running your HDMI through essentially your Wired network but I don't think that would work.

Lastly your last costly bet is this:

HDMI WIRELESS EXTENDER 30 METERS - HDMI Extenders - Over CAT5 - HDMI Distribution - Audio Video Devices

But I've never used it and it's $350.00.

According to Samsung.com - your TV has :
Wireless LAN Adaptor Support

At amazon.com there is :
Amazon.com: Samsung WIS09ABGN WIRELESS LINKSTICK WIS09ABGN2 USB LAN Adapter FOR SAMSUNG 2009 - 2010 & 2011 BLU-RAY PLAYERS, 2010 & 2011 SAMSUNG TVs: Electronics

I DO NOT know if that is what will work for you I have been looking to buy a Samsung for a few months now so I have seen this wireless Linkstick before Hope this will give you something to go from...

I will want to do the same thing.. if you find a solution let us know Thanks

The only thing your TV can do with a network connection is play content (video, images, audio) from a DLNA server. If you want to use it as a computer monitor, with no wires between the computer and TV, you will have to go with the wireless HDMI adapter mentioned in a previous post.

You can try reading up on HP Wireless TV Connect. Overall it gets good reviews; according to one of their spokesperson, HP was suppose to have the second version come out in December 2011, but for some unknown reason its not out yet. All I know about the new version is that its a much smaller device.

There is also Asus Wicast.

As harhar pointed out earlier, there is also Intel Wireless Display. You will need a specified laptop.

I myself am debating to go either with Intel Wireless Display or either HP's TV connect.

Make sure your choice of "Source" on the TV is HDMI.

Make sure you have the cable installed properly. I just connected my Samsun to my desktop via HDMI, and Nothing. Then I noticed that the HDMI cable had one end marked "Source" and one end marked "Device." When I connected the "Source" end to the computer, I had picture immediately.
