Older Roku Unit can't connect to WIFI

I have a Roku unit that is over 10 years old. I have not used it in awhile (5+ years). It interfaces with the TV but does not connect to my WiFi. Code 014. I have wasted a lot of time trying to get it to connect, including all the advice I found on here. Is it possible that it never will work? The serial #is: 00:0D:4B:5B:01:C0. There is no apparent model number on the unit. I have hooked another TV up to Netflix using a Bluetooth player. This tells me there is nothing wrong with the WIFI router. If this unit is beyond its useful life, please tell me. Otherwise please give another option to fix this. Thank you.

Re: Older Roku Unit can't connect to WIFI

If it's over 10 years old, then yes it's outlived its usefulness. Roku will no longer support that old of a player, many of the latest channels won't work on it, and it would be painfully slow to actually use compared to a newer device. Anything that old is an original (first) generation player, and really needs to be canned.
