I have a Roku Express. I'm considering buying several more Roku's but want to make sure I get the right one.
Two quick questions:
1) My Roku Express works fine on the main level of my house however in both the basement and the 2nd floor, I have only a "fair" signal strength. When I check for the connection, it says that I have Wi-Fi but not internet. For Roku, what does this mean? I don't seem to be able to stream shows and there is a lot of buffering on live TV.
2) Would the Roku Stick, with the "enhanced" internet be any better in these fair signal strength locations? Will it pick up a better signal or is it simply an issue with my current wifi? I don't want to be purchasing the more expensive units only to find out that they have the same issues.
