so basically for a non techno person does this stream wirelessly ? if i buy this adapterb ?

So the connection to put in the wireless adaptor - is it an ethernet port that could be used to hardwire it or not? I'd rather get one that will have a wired connection (as I already have a homeplug behind the TV for the xbox), if there are any out there that can do that.

I think you're find that with this you have the choice of either using the ethernet port which is built in, or pluging in the optional wireless adapter (which is seperate purchase) and running off that if your broadband router is not nearby. I've just had a check on the official Samsung website and also one or two reviews from people who have purchased this...
