The only model in the current Roku line with an Ethernet port is the Ultra.  All others are wifi only.

  • Roku Streaming Stick +, 3810X, Ser YH0059427035, wifi LivRm - Samsung UN55ES6100
  • Roku Streaming Stick, 3600X, Ser 5S56D8240827, wifi BedRm - JVC EM37T
  • Roku 3, 4200X, Ser 4124C7087583, wifi GstRm - Sanyo DP26640
  • Roku 2 XD, 3050X (collecting dust in a drawer)

Note that even with the Ultra hardwired the remote still uses Wi-Fi direct.  You can use an IR remote, but if your desire is to turn off any RF emissions from the Ultra I don't believe it's possible.
