Vizio tv does not detect my ATT Nighthawk wifi

I just purchased an AT&T Nighthawk due to living in a very rural area.  I have all different devices able to pick up the wifi the Nighthawk puts out.  I attempted to get my son's Vizio smart tv (2 years old) hooked up to the wifi but the TV does not detect any signal or network.  I rebooted the TV, factory reset the TV, etc. and it still doesn't work.  I set the Nighthawk feet away and also went on the highest power signal offered and that still did not fix the issue.

I've read about changing settings but I am clueless there.  Any and all help will be appreciated!

I suspect this is a hotspot device so I'm moving this thread to the Wireless forum.

I believe you can direct wire the Nighthawk to a smart TV. You do know you'll use up all your data in less than a week right?   

You might want to look into satellite internet

I have an unlimited data plan.  My plan is to hardwire and go from there.  I was able to switch the ghz and the TV picked up the signal but it was too slow to operate.  Switched back to 5ghz.
