Hooking up to my wireless internet to activate my device
I have a brand new cox cable internet modem , and I recently brought two Roku devices.. plain express from Walmart. I’ve restarted the Roku several times , moved the internet modem throughout the house and even closer to the Roku box . My internet name isn’t showing up on the Roku nor in the private internet.

First, be sure your router is set to use the 2.4 GHz band as the Express is an economy unit with a single band wifi receiver that does not receive the 5 GHz band.
