Bought another brand new one. Still having issue. Sigh.
Rats. However, unless you received two defective units (unlikely), then there's something strange going on with your network. Do you have a hotspot on your phone you can try to see if it can connect there? Or can you see any other wireless networks on the Premiere? Once you get it connected, you can get a firmware update, and maybe that will resolve your connection problems.
I’m also trying a new Streaming Stick +. Connects to by phone hotspot but not my home Wi-Fi.
OK, that shows the wireless is working correctly. Again, that points specifically to your home network. Yes, it's puzzling that other devices are connecting. And since they are working, I hate to ask this question. But, does your wireless passcode include any special characters (@, #, $, etc.)? In general , Roku devices don't like those.
I bought the Roku Premier and successfully connected it to the 2.4 wifi & internet yesterday. Today I unplugged it from the tv and plugged it into the receiver. It remembered the wifi password but would not connect. I've rebooted the router, the Roku, changed the wifi channel. No connection. Help.
Thanks for the inquiry.
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?
Can you please answer the following so I can get a better understanding of what you are experiencing:
- 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 moving the device closer to your router to see if you can get connected?
- How long have you been experiencing this problem?
If those things still aren't helping, feel free to send me a PM with the answers to the above along 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.
After several weeks of good performance, suddenly my Roku Premiere lost the wireless connection and I can't reconnect. At first it "saw" my home wireless, but wouldn't connect. Then I entered the name of my network but it still failed to connect. I tried restarting both the Roku and my router, without success. Then I tried my iPhone hotspot, and at first it connected, but then again after about ten minutes the Roku suddenly lost the connection and no longer could find the iPhone. Help, please!
I have a Roku Premiere 3920x connected by Wifi to my Comcast Xfinity router. Everything worked fine, until it dropped the connection (in the middle of the Citrus Bowl no less), and cannot find the Wifi network any more. When I scan for networks, it doesn't see it, even though all my other devices show an undiminished network strength. Factory resetting did not help. But when I reset the router, I have a very small window, of perhaps a few seconds, when it can see the network. When I try to connect, it warns me that the signal strength is low, and when I proceed anyway, the connection fails and it will not see the network again, even after a restart of the Roku. But a router restart gives me the same short window where it sees the network again. And if I move the Roku very close to the router, maybe within a meter, then it works just fine.
Is there a way to tell if the problem is with the Roku, or with the Comcast-owned router? Before I go out and buy another Roku, or Comcast pods to boost the signal, I'd like to know what the most likely cause of this new problem is.
Having the same issue. I've power cycled everything and even gone as far as resetting to factory with no resolve. Nothing has changed as far as my wireless goes.
Mine is working-- at the moment!-- using my personal hotspot. It still doesn't recognize my home wireless system, even though the signal is quite strong where the roku is. Try using your own hotspot, if you have one. Let me know if it works for you!
