Connecting WiFi Without a Remote

Hello Community Users,

If you're reading this, it means you're attempting to connect your Roku Streaming device to your home network without a remote.

Please note, that if your wireless network settings have been updated or if your device has lost its network connection, requiring you to re-establish your network connection, you will need your Roku physical remote. 

In addition, the Roku mobile app cannot be used for this purpose because it requires being connected to the same network as your Roku device, which isn't currently possible.

For more information on controlling your Roku streaming device from a mobile device, please visit this link: How to install the Roku mobile app | Official Roku Support

If you're still unable to connect, you can purchase a Roku remote from our selection on Roku Accessories

Roku Voice Remote Pro (2nd edition) | Backlit Remote | Roku

Roku Voice Remote Pro | Rechargeable Voice Remote | Roku

Roku Voice Remote | Voice Activated Remote | Roku

Roku TV Remote | Replacement Remote For Roku TV | Roku

Roku Players Remote | Roku Simple Remote Control | Roku

Tip: Visit the remote and compare and find which remote is best for you with a side-by-side comparison chart.

Thank you! We hope that's helpful, Happy Streaming!

Best regards,
The Roku Community Team
