How do I connect the Roku to a wireless network that doesn't have internet
I have a private network that I like to keep off the internet (basically, the internet is used through a different router in the house and it becomes bogged down every now and then when a lot of people use it) so I have my own wireless router on a closed network from the internet. My problem is that I want to connect the roku device to this wireless router but it won't let me do it unless it has an internet connection. Is there a way to connect to a wireless router that isn't connected to the internet, or how can I trick the roku into thinking it's connected to the internet. I have some local content that is being interrupted by internet activity on the main router so I want to use my own router.
