Roku 5 Ghz

Jump to solution

I have many devices in my home that are 2,4, I recently bought a Sharp TV that would automatically connect to 5 Ghz, which was nice. My question is Which Roku devices will connect to 5 Ghz? Currently I have a couple of Roku Premiers that work ok but will not pick up on 5 Ghz. I cannot upgrade to mesh because my CCTV's only run on 2.4, as do several of my other wifi enabled devices. So, I would like to replace the Roku's in my home (upgrade), as well as a signal booster for my Linksys router.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Thanks for the Wiki. That is a treasure trove of info. Looked into the Roku Ultra but not sure reading reviews about freezing up and sound cutting out. Any firmware updates in the last few months that would tackle some of those reviews?

Yes, though I don't know what the dates/firmware versions of the reviews are/were.

Regardless, current firmware version is 9.3.0-4194 - in general RokuOS 9.3.0 has been the worst of any of the releases of the last few years, especially in its initial release, and while 4194 has addressed some of the issues (there have been several release builds prior to 4194), many issues remain - 5 months after initial release (including many 2.4Ghz WiFi issues/problems/bugs), so wired/5Ghz usage is definitely recommended - which just leaves the Ultra/Ultra LT.
