(college dorm) TCL Roku TV not sending direct wifi address to connect the internet

Jump to solution

My roku tv used to send my phone, PC, and tablet, a direct wifi address to link the tv to the my college wifi. 

Suddenly I can’t find the address anymore from any of my devices. 

I’ve tried reboot but didn’t work.

Thank you. Unfortunately it does not but at least I know my problem is the authentication part. (I can’t see the DIRECT-roku-xxx wifi address from My smartphone and tablet)

You will only see the “DIRECT” network name during the setup phase of the Wi-Fi network. Are you trying to set up the Wi-Fi? That network goes away once the Wi-Fi is running. If you need to set up the Wi-Fi again, start by forgetting the current Wi-Fi and do the wireless setup again.
