TV Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

It is very likely that your Vizio is a "Smart TV" which can be used on Wi-Fi but I will need the model number to confirm

TV Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

Ah okay. You are asking a different question.

You cannot access your laptop wirelessly that is not how it works unfortunately.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
is there not interfaces to accomplish this widi? etc
TV Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

No, that is not how Wi-Fi works on the TV.

The TV itself can connect wirelessly to the internet but you can't connect to your laptop wirelessly.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago

TV Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

Because it is not possible.
