OH MY GOD I HAVE THE SAME ISSUE AND I AM SICK OF IT!!!
had the iphone 7 plus prior to this one and the hotspot connected automatically with no problem, my husband's galaxy connects with no problem but I CANNOT CONNECT MY IPHONE XR. I honestly dont know what to do anymore. HELP!
have you followed any of the steps listed in the previous posts? It works for almost everyone. I have two different XR phones and my Roku players connect to them fine.
So guys, I pretty much had to change my hotspot pw to all lower case letters and numbers only, then I had to reset the network settings on my iphone:
then I had to reset the network settings on roku:
then I had to reconnect and reenter my pw, it asked me to restart the roku and I did that and it then connected. After connected I also updated the roku software.
Its working now
hi, thanks for you reply. I did on my phone only at first and it didnt work, until I read a comment saying it should be done on roku as well in case it didnt work and I just did that.
Its working now
Just bought Roku Ultra. Trying to tether to XR. Cannot. The solution in thread requires you to get to a “Settings” screen but Roku out of the box forces you to connect to internet before you can get to any kind of Settings, AFAIK. So Catch 22. I only have tethered internet. Too bad. Older Premiere Plus works. Thread is 10 months old, same issue.
Do you have any special characters in your hotspot password? The Roku doesn't like those at all. But I can connect to both of my XR iPhones without an issue. Perhaps a firmware update on the Roku would help, but that would mean taking it somewhere you can use an alternate method of connecting to the Internet.
I’m having a similar problem with both my iPhone X and my iPad Pro. Ever since iOS 13.2 came out I cannot connect to Internet with the Roku 2
It will physically connect and say Wi-Fi connected no Internet available.
i’ve talk to Apple and did whatever was recommended on this forum. But the odd thing is I can connect other devices to my phone like a laptop etc. But the Roku will not connect
Apple thought possibly because the new phones and iOS 13 and above have made modifications to their software and it possibly Roku may need to make a software update in order to connect
