How to Connect a Roku to WiFi
Connecting a Roku to WiFi allows you to stream movies, TV shows, and other content from the internet to your TV. Here’s how to do it:
- Start by making sure your Roku is plugged in and turned on.
- Locate the WiFi icon on your Roku’s home screen and select it.
- Choose your WiFi network from the list of available networks and enter the password when prompted.
- If your WiFi network is not listed, select “Scan Again” to search for additional networks.
- If you’re still having trouble finding your WiFi network, try moving your Roku closer to your router or using a different device to check if your WiFi network is working properly.
- Once your Roku is connected to WiFi, you’ll be asked to create a Roku account or sign in to an existing one.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup process, including choosing a language, setting up your payment method, and adding channels.
