Roku TV won't connect to my internet but connects to my hotspot
I have a 55" Hisense Roku TV. I just moved and started having issues with it connecting to the internet. It worked for about 1 hr the first day I move and then just disconnected. Every single device in my household can connect to our wifi except my TV. However, the TV can connect to my phone hotspot just fine. The TV detects my SSID but when I go to connect it says "Unable to connect to wireless network".
I have tried a factory reset on the TV and then updated the software through my hotspot. No luck. I have unplugged and also restarted the TV. I have called my internet company. Reset and unplugged router. They blamed the TV. I have called Hisense. No luck. They blamed the internet. I have even moved my TV directly next to the router for strongest signal. No luck.
I gave up on wireless and got an ethernet cable. It says "Cannot detect Ethernet cable". Now, this one i have not checked to make sure the wall jack is working.
I am so frustrated. It was working and then in the middle of my show, it says disconnected and haven't been able to connect ever since.....PLEASE HELP
You can also try configuring your router and use wireless channels 1, 6, or 11 which are the preferred channels in North America. Each time you change the wireless channel, you will likely need to apply/save changes before you are prompted to restart the router.
