I have my Roku plugged in and the USB power cable with long range wireless receiver plugged to the Roku but after I hit language, I have a purple box that comes up stating "Missing Advanced Wireless Receiver" The AWR is not detected and must be connected. I have plugged it into a power source as well as directly into the television through the USB port but get the same message.
Why would that occur... BUM AWR from Roku? Any help is appreciated. TIA
Thanks for the post.
The advanced wireless receiver (AWR) should be included in the box that your device came with (it looks like a cable and is labeled "Advanced Wireless Receiver").
If you are missing the AWR, please send me a PM with your Roku account email address, and include the serial number of the Roku device from Settings>System>About. I'll be able to assist you further from there.
This is a roku stick+, it should not be plugged into the tv usb port, but directly to wall outlet. Stick+ plugged into hdmi of the tv, AWR is plugged into the Stick+, then usb extender plugged into AWR, and the extender into ac usb adapter and into the wall.
Thanks for the inquiry.

On startup my Roku Streaming stick + acts like its going to work asks for preferred language. Then I get “ Missing advanced wireless receiver. The wireless receiver is not detected and must be connected. I’ve tried it with direct power and usb power. Get the same results. Promise the wireless receiver is plugged into the stick. Checked the connection to it twice.
Thanks for the letting us know about the issue that you are experiencing.

I also bought a brand new Roku stick and have the same problem. Took about 20 tries to get the remote to pair, got everything set up, the website said everything was all set, then it tried updating channels, lost connection, remote came unpaired again and now I sometimes get the screen that says missing advanced wireless receiver and sometimes I just get the screen that says scanning network. And I can’t go to settings or anything else because my remote is no longer paired either. Frustrating! Please help
I am having the same problem. It won’t let me set up the Roku saying it’s missing the advanced wireless receiver but it is plugged in to the wall
I am having the same problem - I have tried to set the roku up many times and it fails. can you please tell me how to fix this issue
Someone on this board from Roku responded and they ended up sending me a new attachment for the Roku that worked. Hope you saved you box with the #s on it they ask for that.
