Activation Loop

My Roku express is just out of the box and when I stepped through the install the roku would not get through all 30 parts on the install and would reboot and ask me to enter a new activation code again.


I have tried factory defaulting and trying again but I am in an activation loop. 


Any ideas?

Re: Activation Loop


Thanks for the post.

We recommend rebooting both your wireless router and your Roku device. I'd also recommend trying to connect your device to an alternate network, such as a mobile hotspot, to see if you can activate and setup your device. Then once your device has been setup, try connecting back to your home wireless network.

Please keep us posted.
