Help with wired connection.

Hello all. First time Roku user here looking for a little help on how to get my device working via wired. I keep seeing videos of people using the setting to change it to wired but I do not have that option. Not sure if its because I'm just now hooking it up and need to go through some procedures first but here's the situation. The device is hooked up correctly. Roku shows up on my screen. I pick a language. Then all I get for options is "Private Network" & "Scan for network" Our TV is so far from the router that we have always had to use wired for our living room TV. So my question is, how do I get to the settings function without having to deal with this wireless search? Thank you!

A wired connection is only available on the Roku Ultra and many Roku TVs. Any other Roku player is wireless only. What model Roku do you have?
