Re: Need help setting up dorm wifi on tv

Many hotels, dorms, etc,  are set up with a wifi system that you connect to by logging in on a web page via an internet web browser.

The Roku has no web browser.  In order to log the Roku into the net's web page, you use the browser in a wifi-equipped computer or mobile device and set it up to work through the Roku.  You do this by connecting your computer or mobile device to the Roku via a wifi-direct connection.

This Roku page explains the process: https://support.roku.com/article/215058118

Re: Need help setting up dorm wifi on tv

in the link it says after the connection is initiated, the remaining steps will appear on the television screen. Complete these steps on your computer or smartphone. however when i connected (i tried on both my phone and laptop) nothing popped up on my tv or my phone/laptop. I even tried saying i was at home instead of a dorm and it connects to the wifi, but i cant get on anything like youtube or netflix.
