To hook any Roku up to a WiFi connection, you have to have a remote. The app will not work until the Roku is connected to the network. No ifs, ands or buts.
However, you can still use your Roku 1. You can go to almost any store that offers TV accessories and find a universal IR remote that has Roku codes. I've seen a number of them available in one on my nearby general purpose stores for less than $10. There are plenty available online as well. Just make sure it says on the package that it supports Roku players.
The Roku 1 is quite old, going on 8 years now. That said, Roku does still support it with OS updates. However many newer channels will not work on it. So you might consider upgrading to a Premiere. I don't recommend the Express, as the Premiere is only a little more money but a much better player.
