internet connection not holding

 I can connect my roku device to the Internet but after 5 seconds it disconnects. Any solutions for me?

Re: internet connection not holding

I've never had that particular problem but I do suffer an occasional loss of wifi connection to my home network.

This has always worked for me:

  • Restart your router (even if other devices have no problem finding and connecting). Sometimes that's all it takes, if not keep going.
  • Restart the Roku to clear its memory via Settings > System > System restart (for a Roku TV it's Settings > System > Power > System restart). Again sometimes that's all it takes, if not keep going.
  • Find and connect to your network via Settings> Network > Set up connection

If that doesn't fix it, try disconnecting the power to your Roku for a few seconds.  When it comes back up, see if you then can set up the network connection.

Hi @jreckten,

Thanks for the post.

We recommend rebooting both your wireless router and your Roku device.
