Nope. You use a remote. You can order one from Roku, you can find one at Walmart, Best Buy, etc, or you can get a universal remote that supports Roku, depending on which Roku device you have.

Always let us know which Roku device you have so we can better direct you regarding a solution. For example, if you have a Roku Stick, a universal remote won't work. That kind of thing.

Your only other option is to set up your new Wi-Fi to match your old Wi-FI - same SSID/network name and password - and hope it connects. If you can't do that then you must have a remote.

Re: No remote, can't get to home screen

Can you set up a universal remote before setting up the roku device? Mine is stuck on the select language screen, but when I read about setting up a universal IR remote, it says first go the Roku home screen, but I won't be able to do that.

Yes, provided it's not a stick. The Sticks won't work with an IR remote, but as long as it's a standard Roku non-stick (no IR support) and non-TV (different code set) device, you can find a universal IR remote. Just ensure that the remote supports Roku.
