Alternatively, you can use the power button on the remote control.

Open ‘Menu’ Option
Using your remote control you need to select the menu option. You can do this by pressing the ‘Menu’ button on your remote control.
Once you have pressed this button, the menu will appear on the screen.

Now it is time to select the ‘Network’ option on your screen. This can be done by pressing the up and down buttons on the remote control.
The ‘Network’ option 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
Select the network you want to connect your Vizio TV with. Use the arrow buttons to navigate towards the chosen network and press the ‘Ok’ button on the remote.
Enter Password And Select Connect
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. The Vizio TV will be connected to the WiFi.
If for any reason you are still having issues with the wireless connection, then there is always the option to connect to the wireless router with a cable.

For this method, you need to have an Ethernet cable. Connect one end of the cable to the wireless router and the other to your Vizio TV.
Open the menu and select ‘Network’. Then navigate to ‘Wired Connection’ and select it. A confirmation message will appear on the screen.
