Can't connect my Vizio tv

Recommended Posts

I am slowly learning all the systems on #1290.  We have a new ORBI router that has a main router in the basement and two satellite routers that communicate with the main router.  We did a signal test inside the house and outside and there's a good strong signal now.  The Vizio TV recognizes that the ORBI is available but when I put the password in during TV set-up it doesn't connect.  No internet connection.  Anyone have an idea what needs to be done?  TIA

John, We had problems connecting our internet as well. We have a Verizon portable  MiFi unit which works great connecting to all our devices…except the tv! 
We never did get it to connect, it’s on our list of “things to figure out” for next camping season!🤔

If I figure it out I will let you know what worked.

Google how to do a Vizio hard reset….not the power reset.

Worked for me.

Steve, I was able to get the TV working by selecting smartcast from the input on the remote.  Now I am trying to figure out how to get the sound from the TV to be through the trailer speakers instead of from the TV speakers.  Big learning curve!

@John Welte Please do! Thank you 

Katjo, I used the remote, selected smartcast and I have tv now.  It was on other inputs.  The trailer had recognized that there was a WiFi connection, but it couldn't connect until I chose smartcast as the input.
