Your TV also has an Ethernet port on the back of it, and I used that port on my TV to connect to my home network. It is more robust than wireless, and I don't have to worry about security holes in my network that a wireless network can introduce if it isn't configured correctly. see less If you are planning to connect this TV to your home network through a 802.11 wireless router or access point, you will first need to buy the optional WiFi adapter that allows the TV to connect to a wireless network.

The TV is advertised as "WiFi Ready", not "WiFi Built in". What that means is that it
does not have WiFi without a WiFi adapter that you have to buy separately.

I plug my Panasonic directly into an Ethernet router. That works great.
I can stream movies directly from providers like Netflix and Amazon.
But since I have never had a need to get an adapter I have never
used one. I suspect it would work like my Ethernet cable.
Plug it in one of the USB ports, log-on to your wireless router,
hit the Internet button on the controller and your good to go.

The set is wifi "READY" but requires a purchase of part TY-WL20U WIRELESS ADAPTER for around $131.00 on Amazon hope it helps the only other option is to use a CAT5 cable and plug directly into the TV via the network port to hook to the Internet

The TV does not have a built in wi-fi adapter, but you can buy one from Panasonic. I have a Trendnet TEW-687GA that I use instead. Probably costs the same.
