You need a physical remote to get connected to Wi-Fi.  You don't necessarily need a Roku remote, but the universal remote must support Roku TVs (not just Roku players).

Less then hundred dollar Universal remotes can only control a Roku by IR, meaning just program the correct code into the universal remote it should just work, nothing to do on the Roku itself.

So if I lost the remote all I can do is order another one ? That's the gist of it..?

Yes. Any universal remote that supports Roku will control a Roku box. They're IR remotes, and you just follow the instructions in the box to set it up for Roku.

Unless it's a Roku Stick or Roku TV that you have. Then, you should probably get a Roku Voice Remote. You may be able to pick one up locally from Walmart, Best Buy, Target, etc.
