Connect Roku stick to a new wifi network without a remote or with a TCL Roku TV remote

How can I setup a used (but new to me, just bought online from someone) Roku Streaming Stick (Model# 3800X) to my home internet without a remote? The stick did not come with a remote. My roommate has a remote to a TCL Roku TV, it's not working when trying to pair the remote to the stick.

I'm not sure what to do or how to fix this frustrating problem..

IS THIS ROKU STICK USELESS WITHOUT A REMOTE? CONSIDERING THE FACT ITS NOT CONNECTED TO A FAMILIAR NETWORK.

PLEASE HELP. THANK YOU!

Yes, you wont be able to use it without a Point Anywhere/WiFi Direct remote.

Either remote will do.

@TaylorEAngell 

Let me add to what @StreamerUser said. The Roku Voice Remote ($20) and Enhanced Voice Remote ($30) are also sold at Walmart, Best Buy, Target, etc. You don't have to wait on one being shipped if you want to go ahead and get one.
