Yes. In order for your Roku player to connect to your high-speed Internet connection, you must have a network router or access point supporting wireless (Wi-Fi) and/or wired (Ethernet) connections. Here is a list of routers that have been tested by Roku.
Note: Some cable/DSL modems have a built-in router/wireless access point.
