Hi, I'll be happy to help with this issue - can you let me know who your Internet provider is?
also, I'm guessing that everything is working correctly for your laptops/desktops etc?
hello, yes, everything at home wifi, laptops etc are working fine
my provider is www.caribserve.net
i tried disabling the wifi security, but that didnt help
what model is the router?
but once i click to see one movie, it would be loading forever
and doesnt move
and finally network error
it does it with webmovies, also,
skype chat works
twitter works as well
ok - so it's just the one app?
wallstreet journal, no text , nothing
ok - and has the router been restarted?
on the webvideos, it does initializing...then loading... and then doesnt move
on vuduhd, straight away it says unable to connect to the network
on rapsody, same thing...network error
yahoo weather, "connection unavailable"
thanks - very strange that some works and some doesn't
have you tried to change the wireless channel?
yes, it was on 2 i put in on 3
ok - have you any way of connecting the TV directly to the router to see if that works correctly?
i was able to register the tv by amazon. i can do a search for titles,
but never able to load a video
the other thing that may be an issue is that it seems to be struggling with more of the intensive appsa
such as loading a video
and Vizio recommend an 802.11n wireless connection
whereas the Linksys BEFW11s4 is an 802.11b router
I dont have a network cable that long, that will be my next test, but would love it to work without cables
the network cable will be a perfect test
if things work correctly with a long cable
then that would indicate that an 802.11n router will also work wirelessly
as it would appear to be speed/performance related
in other words i would need to buy another router
yes - if the ethernet cable works correctly
ok, will try that
going to buy one, maybe tomorrow
ok, sounds like a plan
ok, cool/ thanks
let me know how it goes
finally connected through ethernet, but still the same issue
I just did a reset memory to factory settings
i am going through the setup progress, it detected the network cable connection and mentioned 'connected' now its scanning the cable tv channels
once pressing the V button, it was updating and installing apps
going to the first app, Yahoo News, top stories, it says 'connection unavailable'
next is twitter: was able to sign in and see my tweets
i called Vizio support
after going through the settings, they say my internet connection is too slow, that it can never work
I am at 1Mbps they say I need at least 3Mbps
i cannot believe that this is the issue
I can't specifically see why a 1Mbps would not access the services
did Vizio offer any further suggestions
no, they didn't
Hi Steve, Firmware Version: 1.52.02
Yes, the issue is the same.
I still can't believe why it doesn't work on the tv. I mean, I can connect all my devices since years on this router without an issue.
There's got to be something. Going with the ethernet cable exclude the idea of a N router.
I am also wondering when doing a connection test on the tv what it is actually doing.
