Re: Why won’t my Roku find any source of wireless internet

I have a 0nn Roku tv but lost the remote to it and I'm trying to use the app on my phone the way I could put the internet on there to use the Roku on the TV that's built on there

Re: Why won’t my Roku find any source of wireless internet


If you have never setup/activated the Onn RokuTV with a Roku account (ie. setting it up to your network), you will need to do that with a physical remote before being able to use the Roku mobile app.  You can purchase either a Roku Voice Remote or a universal streaming remote compatible with RokuTV. (Both of these can be found at Walmart, Best Buy, etc.)

If you have prevuiously setup/activated your RokuTV before losing the remote, you can try connecting your RokuTV via ethernet cable (if your TV is so equipped), and then try using the Roku mobile app to connect.  Once connected, you can switch back to wifi.
