Help & troubleshooting for network issues, including connecting your device to your home Wi-Fi network, connecting to public networks, troubleshooting wireless issues & ethernet connections, and optimizing streaming performance.
Just bought a Roku Streaming Stick +. I enabled screen mirroring from a Win10 PC, and as long as I'm in the same room as the Roku, everything seems to work fine. But if I take the PC further away to another room, I lose connection to the Roku. I have a main wireless router and two wireless extenders in the house. I have tried multiple combinations of connecting the PC and Roku to the same wireless access point, different access points, and 2.4GHz and 5GHz connections. Regardless, once I leave the room where the Roku is located with the laptop in hand, I will quickly lose connection to screen mirroring.
I would have assumed that since all devices are on a single (with extenders) wireless network that it shouldn't matter that the PC and Roku are physically distant from one another. Thoughts?
I have seen that others have had problems with screen mirroring, but I did not. Just do a search on your PC for "Connect to a Wireless Display". Click on it, and it should open up Settings - Display. On the lower half of the screen under Multiple Displays, it should have an option to Connect to a wireless display. Click on that, and it will search for available options. When I am in the same room as my Roku, it shows up and I just click on it. When I am not in the same room, nothing shows up. Hope this helps.
