The RV park I am in just put in a new tengointernet network, and the Roku can see the network but cannot connect. When connecting my phone or computer, a sign-in screen pops up saying "Welcome to the RV park. Press this button to go online." After doing so, there is good internet access. Because the Roku unit cannot receive that screen, is that why it cannot connect? What is the workaround? Thank you.
This is a common setup at hotels, dormitories, and other public systems where you have to go to a website via a web browser on a computer or mobile device and log into the system. Once you've done this you can continue to use the net.
The Roku has no browser so an alternate hotel/dormitory method was added to the Roku software several years ago, utilizing a wifi-equipped computer/phone/tablet to connect to the Roku via wifi-direct and use the computer's browser to make the connection. Some older models, though, don't have this capability and I haven't been able to locate a list of which models do and don't.
