Roku Premiere - Internet Network Troubleshooting

Jump to solution

Hello, I bought the Roku Primere about a month ago now.  It has worked fine until a few days ago.  The internet connection is strong here in the office for the iPad, Mac computers, and everything else (and even where the Roku box is located).  The Roku box is located quite a distance from the Internet router (but as stated before it was working fine and there were no poor Internet connection issues).  But it keeps stating that there is a poor Internet connection.  It has not had this problem before.  Please advise.

I’m having same issue on all 3 of my 43” Roku TVs.  Lost internet connectivity last night.  All other devices on router have good internet speeds +10MBs upload.  Rebooted router twice now and did 3 factory resets on TV to see if I could resolve but still can’t connect.  Can usually I initially connect with two check marks on Wi-Fi and internet; but when I do connection test I fail on internet.  I also tried to connect hotspot through smart phone to isolate whether an ISP issue or not but doesn’t work either.  Have been running these 3 TVs for months without issue and wondering if they were impacted by an update.

****solved.  Checking parental controls on router seems to have solved it****

Thanks for the note.

I would recommend checking out our Support page for troubleshooting issues here: What should I do if I cannot connect to my home network or the internet?

- Have you ensured your router is broadcasting a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network for the device to connect to? The Roku Express is only compatible with wireless b/g/n networks on the 2.4 GHz spectrum. 
- Have you tried changing the wireless broadcast channel on the router to see if this will allow your device to connect? 
- Have you tried moving the device closer to your router to see if you can get connected? 

If those things still aren't helping, feel free to send me a PM with your Roku account email address and the serial number of your Roku from Settings>System>About and I'll be able to assist you further from there.


Thanks,
Danny
