Correct Input for the wireless network - selecting the correct wireless network is extremely important. The wrong name will never establish a successful network. If you suspect your device to have connected with the wrong network, seek expert help for correct name recognition.


Correct Password - it is obvious that the wrong password will not allow you to enter the network circle. Making mistake while entering the password is not new. Try re-entering the password and make sure you are following the cases too.


Pay attention to the Router - The router can fail to recognize your device. Before connecting the router with your streaming device, try connecting it with another device. Use a smartphone or computer. If the router connects with the other devices, it is likely that the problem is not with the router.


In this process, if the router repeatedly fails to connect with the Roku device, try restarting the router.


Check the wireless signal strength - If your router does not connect despite having a correct password and correct password, blame on the speed and strength of the wireless signal. A quick tip is to keep the streaming device close to the router. You may also want to remove any kind of obstructions from obstructions like cabinets or walls. Make sure the route between the router and the streaming device is clear.
