The LG AN-WF100 is a USB Wifi dongle that enables many of LG’s televisions and Blu-ray players to be able to access the NetCast and Blu-ray BD-Live content wirelessly, without the need to connect a network cable.
As we see with many devices these days, running a Ethernet network cable from your router or broadband modem can be very difficult indeed, and if you have your television wall mounted you’ve either got to hide the cable in the wall or in trunking, or put up with it being visible.
This is where dongles like the LG AN-WF100 come in as they allow you to connect wirelessly.
As Wi-Fi dongles go, the LG AN-WF100 is an attractive enough device – not that it really matters because the dongle is going to be out of sight when it is plugged into the rear of your television or Blu-ray player. However, it does at least give you a little bit of comfort that the dongle has been well designed and made, especially considering the relative high cost of the device.
Usage is simple – simply plug the dongle into your device and the built in drivers should pick it up straightaway and ask you to select and connect to the available networks.
What to consider…
It should really have been included with many devices (such as the flagship LG 55LX9900 television), and the cost is a little high for what it is.
