How Do I Make a 'Roku TV' Extend Wifi Range?

How can I make a 'Roku TV' extend its wifi range to my router?

Could buying a roku dongle extend the wifi range on a Roku TV? Or is that overkill since the Roku TV already has the dongle albeit built in?

Re: How Do I Make a 'Roku TV' Extend Wifi Range?

Hi @jeff9870,

Greetings from the Roku Community!

Please be aware that Roku TV does not support any HDMI that has a WiFi extender. The signal strength when using a wireless network will always depend on the distance between your router and your Roku TV, unless you're using a WiFi extender on your router.

As a workaround, you can use an Ethernet cable to connect directly to your Roku TV to ensure the efficiency of the signal strength. You can refer to this article for further information: How to use USB to connect your Roku streaming device to a wired network.

We hope this helps you out!

Thanks,

Rey
