HELP! No Physical remote and I can't connect via app.

Hey everyone, I took my roku tv out of storage for the first time since February and I lost my remote and I have WiFi at my new place but the roku app won't connect to the tv at all or even wake the tv up.

Am I absolutely screwed or is there any fixes?

I'd appreciate any help, thank you everyone.

If you set the SSID and passphrase of the new router to be exactly the same as the previous one, it should connect automatically.

If you can't do what @Strega suggested, you must get a physical remote.  You should be able to find a cheap universal remote that works with your Roku TV.

You have any old universal, cable, or Directv remotes laying around? I might be able to give you a code to control the Roku tv and set up internet. So name brand and model number of remote?
