Re: Wired connection

Hi @citizen,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

There are some Roku devices that also have an Ethernet port that allows for a wired connection to your home network.

You can use the product comparison chart to determine which products have an Ethernet port.

Hope you'll find this info useful.

Regards,
Mary

Re: Wired connection

Currently, the Ultra (4800) supports ethernet directly, and the Express 4K/4K+ (3940/3941) support ethernet via USB ethernet adapter.

Thanks.

 

I can't find Ethernet as a feature on any product comparison (?)

Re: Wired connection

The product comparison chart link @RokuMary-F  provided does mention ethernet for the Ultra when selected (under "wireless + connectivity" and "ethernet port"), however it does not mention the USB ethernet adapter capabilities of the new 4K/4K+ models (the chart is limited/needs to be updated).

Re: Wired connection

The Ultra isn't available in the UK.  You're limited to the Streambar which accepts a USB Ethernet adapter (sold separately and not from Roku) and I believe the Express 4k which does as well although it's not mentioned anywhere in the details.

Strange it's not available in the uk - US I assume? Is there any technical difference with the US one that would prevent it working in the UK?

Best

Re: Wired connection

I'm not sure the Express can as it has only one USB port, and I understand this is needed for power (?)

Re: Wired connection

The Express may not support the adapter. However, the Express 4K, which is "coming soon" to the UK, may support the adapter. My understanding is the adapter is an inline device that passes the power through the USB while adding the Ethernet port via the same port.
