Re: Roku won't pick up wifi

I followed all the recommendations here and online. I submitted my serial number as requested. Four days later, no response from customer support, no solution to the issue. I'm only able to see a flood of other people with the same problem. I have 5 Rokus right now, and this is how they lose customers

Re: Roku won't pick up wifi

I tried everything. In desperation I went to original factory settings so now I can’t do anything. No networks found. It’s showing my wireless MAC address as all 0’s. If that means anything?

Re: Roku will not connect to Wi-Fi anymore

This is nothing new.  Roku and several WiFi routers do not play well together.  Roku has offered no help. Emails sent every 24 hrs, no person to person verbal contact.  I strongly suggest you use another streaming device. Tried to find a rating site and would give roku devices a 0.

Re: Roku won't pick up wifi

Yes, it means it's irretrievably broken, absence some form of magic over the USB connection that I don't think exists.

They've pushed out an update recently that has bricked certain devices: probably those with a very specific version of a wireless chipset. It's the only explanation for so many devices suddenly unable to find any wireless networks when they had previously been working flawlessly.

Unfortunately, nobody seems to want to admit it, as there's no workaround for devices that don't have a wired Ethernet option (like my Premiere) and they don't want to replace a ton of devices for free so they're just regurgitating the same tired troubleshooting steps, even though they can't possibly help

Is this an actual TV and not a stand-alone player?  There's been many reports of this for TVs.  You'd have to contact the manufacturer (i.e., Hisense, TCL, Sharp, etc.).

If it's not a TV, I can't offer much advice unless it's still under warranty.

roku tv not connected to wifi connection

My hisense roku tv will not connect to the wifi that it has always used. I have reset the router unplugged the tv and even factory reset the tv. The router is inches from the tv. The tv is reading the signal but no connection can be made. I also notice the wifi cone icon doesn't have a dot at the bottom.
