    What model tv have you got ?
    You've got the wifi dongle plugged into the tv ?
    The tv recognises the usb dongle ?
    The tv lets your seach for wifi and connect ? but it fails ? or ?

    i have a wifi dongle on my samsung, though it isn't the samsung one, its a hama one, but it has significantly less reception than all the other wifi receivers in the same spot; wii and ps3 register three bars minimum from the router, but the tv barely one bar. I have used a booster to give better signal and that has worked nicely. how far is your router from the tv?

    ic, so if you have 1 bar it is working, just a bit slow...

    I don't use wifi to my tv, media box, ps3, I run wired as its guaranteed bandwidth which is important for gaming and streaming videos. If you can't run a cable (Amazon Basic 15m for £5) I'd suggest you use homeplugs 200mpbs (at least). TP-Link TL-PA211KIT set from Amazon is £35 and uses your homes electrical system as a network. You'll get much better speed! They are a single connection, you could add a switch at one end to server all the devices or you can get multport homeplugs by WD or Solwise but they cost a bit more.
