During set up keeps reverting to choose your network

Brand new roku express. Plugged in and connected correctly. Finds the wireless network which is working successfully with all other devices. Enter password, green ticks come up, starts set up and shows % of progress, bouncy Roku logo for a few seconds but then goes back to choose your network. Repeated several times and sane keeps happening. Cannot get past this stage. Have tried on 2 different tv’s. Help!!!!! Or it’s being returned! Thanks.

Re: During set up keeps reverting to choose your network

I would try the factory reset process.  There should be a reset button somewhere on the back.  Press and hold for 10 seconds until the unit restarts.  Other than that, probably return it for replacement.

Re: During set up keeps reverting to choose your network


Thanks for the post.

In addition to what @twiceover mentioned, we would also recommend trying to connect your device to an alternate network, such as a mobile hotspot, to see if you can update and setup your device. Then one the device has been setup, you can switch back to your home wireless network.

Keep us posted with what you find out.
