I just bought a TC-P55ST30 Panasonic Tv with the USB wireless adapter. I have a Linksys WRT546 router. When I go through the setup I had to enter the IP and DNS addresses. It sees my network. When I run the connection test it puts a checkmark in the
CHECHECK ETHERNET CONNECTION and
VALIDATE IP ADDRESS and
CHECK FOR IP ADDRESS DUPLICATION
but errors out on CHECK CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET

If there is an entry for gateway, make sure you enter the address of your router. You also need to enable UPNP in your router. The easiest way to set up your tv would be to enable DHCP on your router, then all those details will be filled in automatically. Is there a reason you don't use DHCP?

Thanks for the help. The DHCP is enabled but it didn't pick the IP address or the gateway so I entered them manually. Is it possible the router is not compatable?

Do you mean WRT54G? I've never heard of a WRT546. I'd check the manual of the USB adapter and confirm you have your router using the same encryption that the adapter can support (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.). But if everything passes except the internet connection, that tells me the gateway is wrong or UPNP is off.
