These are not wireless adapters and instead use your home wiring to carry the internet signal from your TV to the router. One adapter plugs into a power outlet by the router and is connected to it by an ethernet cable that should be included in the kit. The second adapter plugs into a power oultet by your TV and connects to the network port via cable to the TV, thus establishing your internet connection. The cables look like this and should have been included with the purchase

What happens when you try to launch one of the apps like Netflix or Hulu?

Hi Pat. I've done more research into your specific model TV. Now that your TV confirms that there is an internet connection in order to receive content like movies and TV over the internet, you are correct, you will now need a "gadget". You can get a Roku player from here:

The way this is set up is the internet connection coming from your Nano adapter plugs into the ethernet port of the Roku player. You'll then connect an HDMI cable

from the Roku box into one of the HDMI ports on your TV. Using your TV remote you set the input to the appropriate HDMI port and then you will have internet access using the Roku.
