Re: no internet connection &remote issues

Roku remotes are made to work with Rokus.  Roku TVs have different IR codesets than Roku players, so you can't use a Roku Simple Remote (which is IR-only) on a Roku TV.  I believe you can use the other Roku remotes with a TV since they are Wi-Fi and can be paired to the TV.  You can also get a replacement Roku TV remote (paying attention to which brand of TV you have because Roku TVs don't all have identical IR codesets.)  Many universal remotes will work as well.  Just make sure it is for a Roku TV (not Roku player) and that it includes your brand of Roku TV.
