I've used  Netgear WN1000RP wireless booster to provide a stronger signal for our TV

So, is this LG dongle specific to your TV?  or would any wi-fi dongle work with it?  :-\

I dunno like, I think the TV has to use its own dongle as its designed to run with the TV's OS... regular USB Wifi dongles are usually made to run on windows and come with drivers as such, so I would check with the TV manufacturer first before buying any old wireless dongle expecting it too work on your TV USB port
