I have owned a Roku Express for over a year now and have not changed its location in my house since I purchased it. I began to notice streaming issues when using Amazon Prime a couple of weeks ago and when I checked my WIFI connection it was described as poor. It had always been Excellent before. The Express is located 25 ft from the router in the same room. I have a Streaming stick in another room located on an upper floor about the same distance from the router which shows the WIFI connection as Excellent. I have moved the Express to within 10ft of the router and changed wifi channel from 11 to 6 with no improvement. I have also factory reset the Express with no change. I think the problem may be due to the software upgrade that took place 05 September because the Express was working well before then. Is anyone else having the same issue or know of a solution I haven't tried yet
I've run into this here several times. This has always worked for me:
Restart your router (even if other devices have no problem finding and connecting).
Restart the Roku to clear its memory via Settings > System > System restart (for a Roku TV it's Settings > System > Power > System restart)
Find and connect to your network via Settings> Network > Set up connection
If that doesn't fix it, try disconnecting the power to your Roku for a few seconds. When it comes back up, see if you then can set up the network connection.

That did not fix the issue . i actually reset and still disconnect through usage. it’s annoying. i think it’s the express product. i have the original stick and hD no no issues. i’m just going to see if i can return it since i have the warranty on it. i never had issue before
