Re: Special characters in wifi password are NOT SUPPORTED by Roku express stick.

Thanks for your reply.

In fact I just power cycled the device which fixed the problem.

The special chars were there before I performed the s/w upgrade but not immediately afterwards. It would seem that the power cycle  was needed.

Wow. I don't get it. 95% of users create STRONG wifi passwords with special characters. Well, mine includes | and / , which my roku express stick does NOT SUPPORT. I would rather give up my roku and sell it as used rather than change my password yet again. But yet, it has the symbols for Euro, GBP, and Yen????? Who uses these in a password???????


This solution worked for me! Hurray!

Don't use the RIGHT shift lock key for capital letters in your password. It changes your symbol display to all the strange characters you mentioned. Instead, use the LEFT shift key, which only capitalizes one letter at a time. Your symbol key will then display the normal symbols we know and love.
