Do I need a router or access point to use the Roku player?

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. 

Any wireless router or access point that supports the 802.11b/g/n wireless protocols should work, including newer 802.11n dual-band routers and access points. 

You will need to know the following:

  • What is the name of the wireless network?
  • What is the wireless network password?

Enter these on the Roku player when prompted and you should be set.   

Having difficulty connecting to your wireless network?

Connected to your wireless network but experiencing buffering during playback?  

Note: Some cable/DSL modems have a built-in router/wireless access point.
