New Wi-Fi router can’t connect old Roku

I have a device that was used on my old Wi-Fi router and had to get a new router and now I can’t connect to it. What do I do and how do I connect to the new Wi-Fi

Re: New Wi-Fi router can’t connect old Roku


You didn't say which Roku device you have. The model number is always helpful. Settings > System > About

If it's an older Roku Express, or some other similar older models, it may operate only on 2.4 GHz band. Many ISPs are either disabling or changing from traditional settings on 2.4 GHz band. Roku requires b/g/n settings, and some ISPs are using g/n only, or not 2.4 GHz at all.

See if this might be what's going on.
