My Roku keeps disconnecting from the internet but when I check my wifi, everything is still working. When I restart my stick, it immediately reconnects only to disconnect again after 30ish minutes. Its very frustrating. When I go to reconnect, I get stuck on “looking for available networks” and have to unplug my Roku. Makes me contemplate on sending it back if theres no fix.
I've never had one disconnect THAT frequently but I have had occasional disconnects.
This has always worked for me to re-establish my net connection when it has been lost or not performing well:
If that doesn't fix it, try disconnecting the power to your Roku for a few seconds. When it comes back up, see if you then can set up the network connection.
Incidentally, I replaced my old Western Digital router with a new Acer one several months ago and have not had a wifi disconnect since then.
Hey did you ever figure this out? I have the exact same issue

My Roku is doing the same thing everyday I have to reconnect to my wifi a couple of times I was in the middle of a movie and it disconnected a message said lost connection then I have to go through the set up and restart my Roku every time why is this disconnecting I’ve called my cable company and had my wifi checked out and it’s fine so it has to be the Roku how can I fix the problem
Which Roku device model are you having an issue with. (Settings/System/About).
Also, what is router model number and who is ISP (internet service provider)?
Different models, different ISPs, and different routers may have different issues and remedies. With a little more info, can hopefully make some sugestions.
I have 3 Roku Express 4K+ units operating at WiFi-5G and found them all to be very sensitive to position and orientation, even when located fairly close to my WiFi router. Mine were all initially placed on a flat surface (TV cabinet, shelf, etc) near the TV with marginal results. I was able to easily tune the position of all devices to improve the transfer-rate from 20-50 Mbps to over 150 Mbps by simply propping them off the cabinet/shelf using a small piece of cork about 1/2" thick to create an air space around the entire unit. This significantly improved the signal-strength and transfer-rate for me.
My Express 4K+ has been having this problem from the start. It started disconnecting from the WiFi about once or twice a week. After about 9 months, it started disconnecting daily. Now, after having it a year, it will disconnect what seems like hourly. I am able to reconnect after I power it down and restart the whole system or unplug it for half a day. This is getting very frustrating and I wished I would have returned it or got an Amazon fire stick in its place instead if this is the only kind of quality this is going to be. I love the microphone in the remote feature. That is sweet but the batteries in the remote constantly have to be replaced for some reason. It's very low quality support and equipment and this is very frustrating. I have done all the troubleshooting steps and even gone out of my way and replaced my modem and my router. Still having the same issue. I have an old Roku in my bedroom which is never failed me. It's just the simple basic run of the mill Roku. It seems like every time they try to advance or make something fancy, it just makes it worthless. I like the advantage of being able to have this remote control reach across the room without even having to point at the the Roku itself. I love the features and the options at Roku has but to me it's almost not even worth it getting the upgraded systems if this is the only kind of quality they have!
What is the model number of your older Roku device. (Settings/System/About).
What network band are you using for both your Roku devices. (Settings/Network/About).
If your Express 4k+ keeps disconnecting, try connecting it to the 2.4ghz band and see if you have a more stable connection. It is possible that your 5ghz band is currently configured to use DFS channels (52-140) which Roku cannot see or use. If the router switches to a DFS channel, your Roku will lose connection. If you are having to restart your network equipment to regain connection, this would be the first setting I would look at. Either disable use of DFS on the 5ghz band, or manually assign a wireless channel of 36-48 or 149-161 and see if performance stabilizes.
While you are at it, disable the Power Saving feature of the Express 4k+. (Settings/System/Power/Auto Power Savings/20-min/[uncheck to Disable] ). This can cause some stubborn reconnections. If you are currently using the TV USB power port for power, instead try using the wall adapter and plug directly into wall outlet. (any cell phone charger adapter 5volt, 1amp will do). An under-powered device will behave unpredictably as well.
The above should allow to rule out some possible culprits.
