Want to know how to connect Vizio TV to WiFi? We’ve got you covered.
Your Vizio Smart TV can be connected to WiFi so you can access online features like installing updates, downloading applications, streaming videos, and more. The process is pretty much the same as connecting your smartphone or laptop to WiFi.
In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to connect your Vizio TV to WiFi and what you should do in case it’s not working.
How to connect your Vizio TV to a WiFi network
Here are the steps you need to follow to establish a WiFi connection on your Vizio TV.
Go to your TV’s main menu
First, access the main menu of your TV by pressing its dedicated button on the remote.
Open network settings
Now it is time to select the ‘Network,’ which is the third choice on the menu page. Select this option by pressing the circle button in the middle of the remote that has ‘OK’ on it.
All of the WiFi connections that are available to connect to will appear under the heading ‘Wireless Access Points.’
Select the network you want to use
Use the arrow buttons to navigate towards the chosen network and press the ‘Ok’ button on the remote.
Enter the login credentials
Once a network has been selected, the TV will prompt you to put the password for that network in. There will be a keyboard that appears on your TV screen.
Use the arrow keys on your remote to navigate to the keys you need and press the ‘OK’ button to enter a letter or number.
When you have entered the corrected password and selected ‘Connect’, a confirmation message will appear on your screen.
Why does my Vizio TV not connect to WiFi?
Your Vizio TV will fail to connect to a WiFi network if there’s a local outage or maintenance going on. It can also happen if you’re running the TV on outdated firmware. But in most cases, the TV connects to WiFi after the router restarts.
As you can see for yourself, it is pretty easy to connect your Vizio TV to WiFi. The process is the same as connecting any other device to WiFi, and it will hardly take you a minute or two. However, in some cases, the connection may not establish. If this happens, check for a local outage or try restarting your internet router.
