Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.
My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Can you tell me specifically what you're trying to accomplish?
Your wifi network and your laptop are 2 different things.
Are you trying to use apps (like netflix, youtube, etc) on the tv?
Or are you trying to access content (photos, etc) on the laptop, to display on the tv?

Tryin to access content on the laptop to display on the tv
Expert:  Nathan replied 2 years ago.
What content?Is the tv already connected to the home wifi network?If so, the tv can access some content on the laptop using the dlna feature. That means file/media sharing and dlna must be enabled on the laptop. Content is controlled from the vizio, using the media browser, and it would then find network computers (laptop, in this case) and display available content that you can view. You cannot send content directly from the laptop to the tv, or use the tv as a display/monitor for the laptop wirelessly without extra cords or equipment.
