Cool, Green and the best Coffee in the world
Last Sunday I had a person install 2 Rokus. Since that time, I have had considerable trouble with my computers not hooking up to the internet. This is becoming a real problem.
Here is the way my system looks on my "internet access" in this order:
Is this the proper way to do this? Am I getting some kind of conflict. How does Roku hook up direct?
Anybody got ideas or solutions?
The Rokus should be connected directly by data cable or Wi-Fi to your Router. Better call your installer, Glen.
Keith, my installer was back and assumed my problem is my personal netbook. Maybe I need a different guy, one who has installed Rokus the proper way and will provide the proper cabling. Do you know one?
We lost our Puerto Rico TV. Delgado was our supplier. There is another lady provider that does the same thing and she says her service will go away in less than 2 months.
Me again. One of the Rokus is about 25 feet from the Router.
When you say Wi-Fi do you mean wireless? They are wireless now.
If you have a Wifi Router it could be your Router and not the Roku. In most cases the internet comes into the your house then goes through the Router then to your computer. The Roku connects directly to your TV and connects wireless to your router.
You may be correct about the Router. But the problems started at the same day and time of Roku installation. Router is 1 year old but---. Are the Rokus supposed to show up as shown in my first discussion above? That is the way they are shown in my network connections.
Johnny, the router is direct wired to Cable Onda. Rokus are wired direct to TV's. They receive their signal from Router, I guess. I am confused by the way the Rokus show up in my "wireless network connection" list.
Try bypassing the Router and re install your Cable Onda directly to your computer. If your internet clears its probably the connection to your Router.
I don't think your Rokus will show up on your wireless internet work connection. However I do remember something that your Rokus needs to be programed to your Router so the two can communicate with each other.
We recently installed a Roku and don't have an Internet problem. Juan Arauz did our installation.
He installed my Roku.
