    Duplicate Network Connections to Smart TV

    My 8.1 laptop shows multiple network connections to my Samsung Smart TV --- One as "media connections" and 3 as "other connections". Both devices are on a simple wireless network using Linksys WRT54GS.

    Under the "Network" page, most of the "Properties" of the TV connections are the same except for "Serial Number" and "Unique Identifier". Did I do something wrong when setting things up? Are these extra connections harmful? Should I delete some? How?

    Yes you will show various TCP/UDP connections to DLNA & UPnP devices on a network. Only way to really know what ports the devices are communicating on. Is to run in a Command Window (Without the quotes): "netstat". If you use the -n flag after netstat. It will give you the IP address of the device. Not just the name.
