PTCL Smart TV over WIFI?


#1

Dear WP fellows,
Is it possible to connect PTCL smart box over wifi?
Reason… I am shifting to a new location and dont want to run cables through different rooms.
I was unable to find any help on google. Any tweak to overcome this barrier will be life saving. :slight_smile:

Use any wireless dual-band usb dongle with broadcom, atheros or ralink chipset. It would work best if both your router and your dongle work on dual-band (such as 5 GHz)

Thanks for your reply.
But why should I use a separate dongal when Smart Box has builtin WIFI already?

SmartBox has built-in 2.4 GHz. You need 5 GHz as it would perform much better and it has less noise and interference. 5 GHz provides faster data rates at a shorter distance, whereas 2.4 GHz offers coverage for farther distances, but may perform at slower speeds
