Remote not pairing with roku device

I bought a replacement roku remote for my roku express + since my other remote was destroyed in my move. I'm now trying to pair this new remote with my roku express+ and it is not pairing since it is a new wireless network. How do I get this to pair?

To clarify, I have tried resetting the roku to factory settings. I have removed batteries and attempted to reset the remote. I have unplugged the roku and left it unplugged for 10 minutes.

To clarify your new remote is wifi remote, it has a pairing button in the battery compartment?

First take of battery door set it aside, put in one battery for now and have the other ready. Now unplug the express + from the power for a bit, plug it back in after the roku name stops bouncing put in the other battery and press the pairing button for 3 seconds and release. Just let it communicate with roku, it is alright if the light goes out don't press a thing. Don't do anything until you get big DONE on screen.

Sorry, but no. Roku tv's use a completely different IR code set then stand alone roku like the express.
