Re: Roku express no longer finds or connects to wifi

Hi @clou3,

Thanks for your first post in the Roku Community!

We appreciate your feedback and we’re sorry you're having trouble with connecting your home network. We want to ensure that our customers have the best streaming experience.

We would recommend checking out our Support page for troubleshooting issues here: How to connect your Roku streaming device to the internet using Wi-Fi or Ethernet | Official Roku Su...

Please answer the following questions so we can get a better understanding of what you are seeing:

  • When did this issue first start occurring?
  • Do you receive any error codes or messages? If yes, please let us know.
  • Have you ensured your router is broadcasting a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network for the device to connect to? The Roku Premiere or Roku Express is only compatible with wireless b/g/n networks on the 2.4 GHz spectrum.
  • Have you tried changing the wireless broadcast channel on the router to see if this will allow your device to connect?
  • Does connecting to a wireless Hotspot fix?
  • Have you tried moving the device closer to your router to see if you can get connected?

Please keep us posted and we'll continue assisting you from there. 


Best regards,
Mary

@Jd412 

What are the model numbers of your Express devices?  Can be found under Settings/System/About on your device.

Also provide your ISP (internet service provider) and router model number.

Likely you are just going to have to make some changes/configurations to your router settings and hopefully be back and running.

@Jefflouis, try unplugging the power for a few minutes and then plug it back in.

Re: Roku express no longer finds or connects to wifi

You cannot change the settings on your Xfinity Gateway: 

xFi Gateway (XB6 and higher): Most of these Gateways have been upgraded with software that manages advanced WiFi settings automatically to help optimize your home network and provide the best performance possible.

  • Advanced WiFi settings for Gateways with this software enhancement are not visible and cannot be managed from the Admin Tool or the Xfinity app.

Hi @Jefflouis,

  2. Scroll and select Settings.
  3. Select Network.
