Re: Unable to join the network Direct roku 381

Many hotels, dorms, etc, are set up with a wifi system that you connect to by logging in on a web page via an internet web browser.

The Roku has no web browser. In order to log the Roku into the net's web page, you use the browser on a wifi-equipped computer or mobile device and set it up to temporarily work through the Roku. You do this by connecting your computer or mobile device to the Roku via a wifi-direct connection. When you then log into the system's web page while connecting through the Roku it establishes the Roku's connection.

Note that this only works on a Roku that first has been successfully set up via a "normal" non-hotel/dorm connection.

This Roku page gives more details than the video you cited: https://support.roku.com/article/215058118
