Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

The short answer is that this isn't going to work, which is a limitation of the older ipad and the tv both. Your tv is just a basic model television, it is not capable of streaming anything from the ipad as it has no wireless connection, and the older ipads don't support that function anyway.

You can use the ipad itself and watch apps like netflix directly on the ipad, but you wouldn't get them to the tv.

What I would recommend for you in this case is to keep the ipad separate and use it for other things, then purchase an external streaming device to connect to your vizio tv such as a roku or fire tv (click for link). Either of these would simply plug into the hdmi port on the back of the tv, and come with its own remote control. You'll link it to your home wifi network and then be able to use the roku/fire remote to choose different apps such as netflix, amazon, hulu, youtube, and hundreds more, all controlled from its own remote without having to mess with the ipad. These devices are under $50 and will be the fastest and easiest to use option for you.
