When you receive ‘Unable to connect to wireless network’, you might have some problem with your Wi-Fi or Router. Make sure that you have entered the right credentials (Network Name and Password) and check whether the router is working.

If you have entered the right credentials, check for the Wi-Fi signal strength. If that doesn’t help try restarting the router and the Roku device. If the error still persists, contact the roku.com/link support for technical assistance.

The above "roku" link redirects you to a scam site that tries to charge you $69.95 to "resolve" your problem. Real Roku tech support is free.

Are you facing the problem with Roku won’t connect to internet. Follow the instruction give below.

1.      Login to your router

Any router has an IP address. And when enter the IP address in the browser, that you would usually type the website. It will go to the router login screen. The default password for your router is usually “password”. And you can changed during installation. Here are a few ways to get your Netflix up and running again in the event that it suddenly stops working.

2.      Navigate to DNS

When you are login the router then go to the DNS settings and change the DNS1 and DNS2 to public DNS address.  Google’s public DNS1 (8.8.8.8) and DNS2 (8.8.4.4) should do the trick then save the setting. If your router internal DNS rather that public DNS, that's the reason your Roku won’t connect to internet. For more detail visit hightailing link

I found the answer to why mine wouldnt hook up to the internet and you have to go find it! Go to settings, and under the network settings, there is a line that says 1 touch. It allows the tv to overtake the roku, unclick the one touch feature. After I unclicked it, it hooked up right away! Go do it now, we spent like 3 hours before we found this, save yourself some time. It works.

A bad wi-fi cable can prevent it from connecting. It’s actually very delicate and can be damaged easily. In my installation, it was in the was in the way of my other HDMI cables. It would have be better if the cable plugged into the back of the stick instead of the side. A new cable costs $19.95 plus around another $5 shipping. A new Roku Express is now on sale for $24.99 at many stores without shipping. Easy decision here.
