I've been trying to connect my Roku tv to my dorms internet. I've already input the MAC address and everything goes smoothly until I'm told to launch a browser after connecting to the Direct Roku wifi. When I launch the browser nothing happens. It doesn't reroute me to any log in pages so the process just stops and I'm unable to connect.
Re: Dorm connect not loading after launching browser
@RokuDanny-R I'm in a Marriott right now and have the same problem. I've used this device before with hotel connect without issue, but I think this is the first time with 10.5. My last trip I had a wired connection in my hotel room, so my travel router connected and I authenticated through another device.
Roku device model: Express 4K+ 3941X
serial number: X0160040NDNS
device ID: S07P5140NDNS
OS/version: 10.5.0 build 4201-CR
When attempting to connect to the hotel wireless, it simply sees everything connect and returns two green checkmarks. The query asking if I'm in a hotel or dorm never appears. However, if you test the network connection, it states it's not connected. Even though it shows a connection, no channel will connect. Connecting to my phone hotspot is allowing me to use the Roku as desired.
