Roku LE - Doesn't See our 5G wifi connection, it only connects to our 2G

Jump to solution

 Roku LE - Doesn't See our 5G wifi connection. Our New Roku LE, won't connect to 5G wifi, but our OLDER Roku Stick connects No Problem. Is there a fix for this or is The LE model NOT capable of 5G wifi?

I tried all the suggestions about rebooting the Roku and even our router. I also moved the Roku LE, closer to our router and all different locations around the house and it still dosen't recognize our 5G wifi... It ONLY connects to our 2G wifi...

That’s cause the Roku LE is a single band unit. The Stick is a dual band unit. The Roku LE is only capable of working on the 2.4 GHz b,g,n WiFi. It’s a budget device that’s why it’s so inexpensive. It’s an inexpensive Roku that has limited features
