I changed my WiFi mode from g/n to b/g/n and that has seemed to solve my problem.

Try this:

  • Restart your router (even if other devices have no problem finding and connecting). Sometimes that's all it takes, if not keep going.
  • Restart the Roku to clear its memory via Settings > System > System restart (for a Roku TV it's Settings > System > Power > System restart). Again sometimes that's all it takes, if not keep going.
  • Find and connect to your network via Settings> Network > Set up connection

If that doesn't fix it, try disconnecting the power to your Roku for a few seconds.  When it comes back up, see if you then can set up the network connection.

Hi @Auntlala2011,

Thanks for the post.

Try taking a look here for more tips about troubleshooting that network error code: What should I do if I cannot connect to my home ... - Roku
We recommend rebooting both your wireless router and your Roku device.
I'd also recommend trying to connect your device to an alternate network, such as a mobile hotspot.
Keep us posted with what you find out

I'm having the same issue. Roku tells me it's my internet but everything but the streaming stick works fine. Ready to throw it away and go with a different brand

Hi @Jeanniem24

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Have you tried the solution that was previously posted?

Does the message pop up when you are accessing a specific channel or regardless of the channels installed on your Roku device? The model number of your Roku player would help as well. Go to Settings > System > About to see it. 

With more information, we will be able to assist you further.

All the best,
Kariza

Help! I have had the same problems listed with Roku streaming device randomly disconnecting from the wireless network. Have done all things others have recommended. Still no wireless connection for streaming device. Says I am connected with excellent signal strength, but then it will not connect wirelessly.

How do I contact ROKU for a person to get actual support?  Thanks, Penny
