4.0 out of 5 stars Works For Me, May 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic TY-WL20U Wireless Adapter for Panasonic 2012 Internet Ready TVs (Electronics)
I got this along with my TC-L47E50 and I've had a pretty good experience with it so far.

Out of the box, I tried plugging the adapter directly into the TV without the dongle. The TV is about 20 feet from my wireless router, but I only got 2 strength bars with this setup. This caused Netflix movies to stream at a low bitrate. However, I noticed that it reported 4-5 bars from a neighbor's router (I'm in an apartment with shared walls) that was behind my TV, so it seems like the TV screen acts as a shield for the signal. I suppose that it's not just a matter of distance - it also has to do with where your router is relative to the TV.

Afterwards, I tried using it with the included dongle and all the reception issues went away. Then I was able to route the dongle to one of the cabinets underneath the TV so it doesn't look ugly with my setup.

The dongle base has a nice weight to it and the adapter itself feels like a quality product. Still, it's a little bit pricy and I wish I didn't have to buy it in the first place. 4 stars.
