    Очень полезная статья. С помощью её у меня получилось настроить IPTV у себя дома через роутер фирмы TP-LINK.

    Интересовал способ именно беспроводного подключения IPTV через wi-fi, модуль которого есть в телевизоре. При помощи этой инструкции все сделала за считанные минуты. Единственное, что немного пришлось покопаться в настройках и выбрать нужные параметры установки, но этот способ все равно мне показался самым простым из всех описанных в статье. Поэтому при наличии вай-фай или USB-адаптера лучше воспользоваться этими приспособлениями для своего удобства и экономия времени.
