You didnt mention what your Hardware is but Try to stream a Roku Channel and see........

My guess is probably not.

Roku Ultra ---Ethernet rules---

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

Hardware is a Samsung Smart TV.  After meandering around the menus, I disconnected internet WiFi connection from TV and lo and behold - Roku streaming worked fine wirelessly.  You were right! Thank you..
