Hi there, 

Thanks for the question. That is not a network that you can connect to and does not provide an internet connection. That is an SSID that is established for communication between your Roku device and any paired, wireless point anywhere Roku remote.  Hope that helps! 

 

Thanks,

Tanner

So you know it's for its Wi-Fi direct connection, not for anything else.

Wifi-direct is a direct connection between two devices. It's as though you had a wire connecting the remote and the Roku. It does not involve the wifi network on your router so you can not connect to the internet through it.

Okay I'm up on what it's for casting photos, videos or using my tablet as a remote. Still it requires a password, which I have forgotten. How do I reset the password the Wi-Fi direct roku connection?

You're trying to log into the wifi direct connection as though it were a network, but that's not how you establish a wifi direct connection.

This connection is established when you PAIR the specific remote to the specific Roku device - you don't enter a password in this process.
