Chris,

Our TV's do not have the ability to surf the Internet. They do not have a browser built in.

No, you cannot browse the internet and go to any web site with this TV. You can only access the apps provide by Vizio.

Probably the biggest drawback to the apps, is that you can only choose what is offered by Vizio and it companion Yahoo. A full browser is not offered. I don't know why, but it's not.

No. Smart TV's are usually equipped with both Ethernet as well as wireless Wi-Fi to connect to the internet. However you must have an internet service provider and a router (wireless if you cannot hard-wire the TV). A modem is used to connect your router to your ISP.
