    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
    Next
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
    Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste
