Connect to mobile hot spot without having the remote

I left home with my roku express and roku express only.  I have a FirstNet Nighthawk mobile hot spot that I'm trying to connect to but without having my roku remote, I can't get to settings.  Is there a way I can reach the roku express with either my lap top or phone and configure the new network?  My phone is not a mobile hot spot.

Re: Connect to mobile hot spot without having the remote

Nope.  You have to configure your hotspot to match your home Wi-Fi (SSID and password) and hope the Express connects.  Otherwise, go out and get a cheap universal remote that supports Roku.
