Roku express can't see my network, but can see other wifi networks.
I just moved and changed ISPs. I got a Linksys router with DD-WRT on it, but my Roku Express will not see my wireless network. It can see other (neighbor's) networks though. Other devices see my router just fine.
Things I have tried (all on 2.4Ghz WiFi network)...
Wireless Network Mode - Tried mixed, B-only, and G-only. (with router and Roku restart between each) No luck
Channel Width - tried Full(20Mhz) and Dynamic(20/40Mhz) (with router and Roku restart between each) No luck
Wireless Channel - tried channels 1, 3, 6, 9, 11. (with router and Roku restart between each) No luck
I even tried changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID) No luck.
Does anyone have any other ideas? or does the Roku box just not like DD-wrt routers for some reason?
Re: Roku express can't see my network, but can see other wifi networks.
As you may have seen, there is/was an issue with OpenWrt and 2.4GHz and the solution was to disable "Legacy" (B) mode. It looks like you've already tried that. Updating OpenWrt to the latest version also seemed to fix the problem, but it could have been that the updated version just disabled legacy mode by default. Still, I'd make sure you're using the latest version of DD-WRT. One last thing to try, if possible, is to use OpenWrt instead of DD-WRT.
