Roku modifies existing network name

Roku adds several code numbers and slashes to existing network name.  The network password won’t work.  This is a new roku ultra on a new LG smart tv.

Re: Roku modifies existing network name

I'm not following you. The Roku cannot alter anything on your existing network. What you might be seeing is the mini-access point that the Ultra runs to allow the Hotel/Dorm function to work, as well as the WiFi Direct remote.

Exactly where are you seeing this network name? If you're referring to the SSID being broadcast by your wireless router, Roku is not and can not change anything to do with that.

Where are you seeing this altered network name?  I've never seen anything like that with five different Rokus.

The silence is overwhelming.
