Answer to "Why will my Roku not connect to the internet?"I suddenly Had this “could not connect to the internet” problem and what a solution I found! I went to my router's advanced settings page, clicked on “Set the DHCP name special character state”, clicked on “Allow Special Characters” and rebooted. All my Roku devices now connect flawlessly. I hope this helps, especially those with CenturyLink modem/routers.
