Unable to connect to wireless network right after taking it out of the box
Brand new roku express, just ordered off Amazon, trying to set up currently and it won’t connect to my internet. I am selecting the proper network, entering the correct password and it still won’t connect. I’m currently losing my mind as I’ve been trying for 2 hours to just connect to the internet. I’ve already tried restarting the roku device and my internet but it still will not connect. I’ve only had it out of the box for a couple hours and have never had a previous roku so (although I doubt it) it’s possible I may be missing something
Furthermore, please note that Roku Express is only compatible with wireless b/g/n networks on the 2.4 GHz spectrum. Ensure that your router is broadcasting a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network for the device to connect to. You can also try configuring your router and use wireless channels 1, 6, or 11 which are the preferred channels in North America. Each time you change the wireless channel, you will likely need to apply/save changes before you are prompted to restart the router.
