Vizio TV sees wireless but won't connect
Have a Vizio tv that can see the wireless - NetGear router. The internet service is through HughesNet. Laptop, iPhone, and iPad have no issues connecting to wireless.

do you have wireless security enabled on the router - if so I would log into the router and remove the security and se if the TV can connect with no security
if not then with no security enabled
post back the TV netwrok settings

IP address
subnet mask
default gateway

is it set to manual or automatic detect/dhcp

from the laptop
post back a ipconfig /all

we can then try to manually set up the connection

once working - we can then try and put the wireless security back on again

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste
Please let us know what the final solution was to any problem posted
