Re-setting up my roku

I unplugged my roku from my house to bring to my hotel. I do not have a remote for it I just use my phone. I can’t get my phone’s remote to work because it is saying the internet connection isn’t there.

Re: Re-setting up my roku

You need a physical remote.  You can try setting up your phone's hotspot to mimic your home Wi-Fi (same frequency band, SSID/network name, and password) and it may connect to that and you may be able to use the app to connect the Roku to the hotel's Wi-Fi, but I think it would take a lot of luck if it's possible at all.
