Default Vizio wifi set up problems

We just purchased a 23" Vizio with internet apps for our bedroom. Since I couldn't get the wireless to hook up to our router in the bedroom but could in the living room, I thought it was time to upgrade my router. I just purchased a Netgear RangeMax N router and decided to put it in the living room so that it was closer to our bedroom. This thing is suppose to reach up to 300 ft. My bedroom is only about a 100 ft or so from the living room. I tried to get the tv to find the router but no go. I changed the settings on the router so there is no password or anything special on the router. I can get excellent reception with my laptop in the bedroom but the tv just won't connect. I am no dummy to networking but for some reason the wifi on the tv isn't connecting - in fact it can't find the access point at all - even after typing in the name. Does the tv have a short range on it that it won't pick up the router signal? I am stumped and need some help! I really would like to use the internet apps but can't! If there is anyone out there that can help me, I really would appreciate it.

Does the TV support the N band you are transmitting?

My brand new HP laptop and brand new Cisco router didn't play well until I called HP tech support and they confirmed that the laptop wireless antenna couldn't pick up the newer n band frequency. I had to reset the router to use the older frequency.
