Ways To Resolve Error Code 018 on Roku
You can resolve the Roku TV error code 018 in the following ways.
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.

your device might fail to connect with the internet. If you find none of the
above steps working for your device, contact with the customer service number of Roku at 1- 844-756-1728.
