Same network question

I have a dual channel router (2.4 & 5). When Roku says my phone has to be on the "same network as the Roku", does that mean also the same channel? If not, are there any problems (lag, etc) that could be caused by being on different channels?

Re: Same network question

As long as your router doesn't isolate devices connected to the 2.4GHz AP from devices connected to the 5GHz AP, you should be able to mix connections and still have everything work.
