Hello, I need to manually connect my Roku device. The Roku remote I lost, and I was using the Roku app on my phone, but now my wi-fi booster isn't working and I'm unable to get my Roku back on the original network.
Is it possible to manually connect to my Roku device by determining its IP address?
Net-connected devices have no innate IP numbers. IP numbers are assigned by the router each time the router connects to the device, so if your Roku is not connected to your local network it has no IP number.
If you have access to your router's control panel, you should be able to find a listing of the connected devices and their assigned IP numbers.

If you have a non-stick Roku, you can find many universal remotes at a local store that can control a Roku if you need it NOW. Some stores may also sell Roku remotes that are RF-based that will also work with the stick models, in addition to regular Roku's. Otherwise, you can find some online if you don't mind waiting for shipping.
