the error message tells you that you did not assign a connection object to the command, resp that the connection is not open.
the problem is in the code above what you posted.

Try something like below, this will assign the connection to the command object and open it.

Using oConn As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
  Using oCmd As New SqlCommand()
    With oCmd
      .Connection = oConn
      .CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
      .CommandText = "storedProcedureName"
      .Parameters.Clear()
      .Parameters.AddWithValue("@userid", TBUserName.Text)
      .Parameters.AddWithValue("@password", TBPassword.Text)
      .Connection.Open()
    End With
 
    Using oRs As SqlDataReader = oCmd.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)
      If oRs.HasRows() Then
        ' Do whatever you need with the reader here.
      End If
 
      oRs.Close()
    End Using
  End Using
End Using
