Answer: 
You need a router with an open port (recommended) and an Ethernet cable or a wireless adapter with a wireless network (not recommended but will work.)

Answer: 
Nothing external is needed as WIFI is built into the 550. You just need a Home Network for the 550 to connect to wireless.

Answer: 
No, the USB port is not set up to support a WiFi adapter. You would need a wireless adapter that connects by an Ethernet cable. Please be aware this is not a LG-recommended setup, but it can work.

Answer: 
Depends what the "USB Wireless Device" is.
Most routers only have Ethernet connections.
If the device is a HD you would need a sourse to pluf it into then sshare it on the network. (Source = PC)

I set everything up correct, all wires, and it even says I am connected to the internet, tested it, all systems go. But when I try to log into netflix it keeps giving me an error screen. I turned off player and turned it on, I did the same to the router, and still nothing.

Answer: 
Did you register your BD550 as a Netflix streaming device? If not, get your Owner's Manual out and follow the instructions to get your player registered for your Netflix account.

Answer: 
Your question is specific to Netflix. Can you access the weather or You Tube as it may be a issue with your log in account for Netflix. If you can access other apps then most definatly that is.

Let me know.

Answers

Answer: 
By this, do you mean there are numerous lines running diagonally across the screen? If that is the case, you have your TV connected to the BD550 with the wrong cables. Even if you have a SDTV with component cables, it can only handle a 480i resolution signal. You'll have to connect the BD550 to your TV with composite (A/V) cables long enough to set the component output to 480i, then you can switch back to component cables.

Answer: 
It would help to know how you have connected the Blu-ray player to your TV and with what cables. Using an HDMI cable is your best bet.
