Help & troubleshooting for network issues, including connecting your device to your home Wi-Fi network, connecting to public networks, troubleshooting wireless issues & ethernet connections, and optimizing streaming performance.
I've searched the forums, but haven't been able to find an answer to this specific issue.
My older Roku 2720x has a USB port on the back, but no Ethernet. Can I purchase an Ethernet to USB dongle and create a wired connection for this device? Does the software on the 2720x support such a connection? If so are there specific models of Ethernet/USB adapter which work/don't work?
I don't believe it will support any Ethernet dongle. At 7 years old, your Roku is getting very old and may not be supported for long. You can either try to find a used but newer model that supports Ethernet, or splurge and get the current Ultra.
