Not sure I understand your question. This is MADE to have the "hard-wire" RJ-45 network connection on a TV or blu-ray connect to it, then this 'bridges' your TV/blu-ray to your existing wireless network, so that you don't have to run a long wire from your TV upstairs, to your wireless router downstairs for example. AND so you don't have to go and buy the $30 to $60 more expensive Wireless-N USB Stick that Samsung and others try to sell you - PLUS, this frees up that Samsung USB port, so you can have a SECOND hard-drive, full of more movies, connected to that USB connection, instead of taking up that USB connection for a LinkStick Wireless N USB adapter. I now have TWO 1-TERABYTE HARD DRIVES connected to my 2 USB ports on my Samsung Blu-Ray. AND, by using the Blu-ray via HDMI to my OLD Samsung Plasma, I now, in effect, have "Internet TV" (hulu, netflix, etc.), without having to go buy a TV with the wireless built-in. All you need is wireless-ready blu-ray - instead, some people have the false conclusion that, "Oh, I have to go out and BUY a 'brand new Internet TV" - no, you don't - if your old Plasma or LCD TV has an HDMI connector, just go buy a $135 blu-ray player with a LAN / RJ-45 connector on it, then buy this NetGear Internet adapter, and you are all set!

Do you mean to connect to recieve HDTV signal? No this would be to connect an internet ready HDTV or device to the internet to access Netflix,Youtube, Etc. I think I will get one for my Seagate FAT+ as I currently have to use a lan cable.
I use it for netflix, Divx, Youtube, Internet radio that my device is set to recieve, what you can recieve depends on what your connected device is setup for if you have no internet ready services I am sure you would not recieve anything as you have to be able to assign or recieve a IP address for communication.
