    Thanks for the help !

    Can you be more specific re: the wireless router? I have to cover 40'. Is there a preferred one to cover that distance?

    tx


  • cookery2004 Dec 25, 2008

    Yes, I have broadband, only one PC. I have only a wired one, will pick up a Netgear wireless. Thank you *very much.*

  • cookery2004 Dec 26, 2008

    Hi again,

    A follow-up to advice given here:

    I have found two Netgear WGR614s: one is in a white box, the other, a yellow (and presumably a later model, v.6). There is a note on the front of the yellow box, "5 times faster than 802.11" which, I believe, describes the content of the white box.

    Also, the yellow box indicates 'G', not sure I'm seeing that on the white box. Is there an appreciable difference? Should I choose one over the other or is it irrelevant?

    Thanks in advance,
    -h

Yes, it connects directly to your TV with a choice of cables - check their site for a description of your options there.  And if you have a wireless network (router) it will connect to the internet through that, so you don't need to have a cable running back to where your computer is.

    You have broadband internet service at this point, right?  Is it hooked up to more than one computer or does the wire just go straight from the modem into your computer?


    I'm just trying to make sure that you know what I mean about a router, since you may have one already.  All you need is an inexpensive router that runs wireless G.  Something from Netgear for example - you can pick up a WGR614 at bestbuy for $45, less if ordered online. Should be perfectly adequate.


    But you do need to have high speed internet (broadband) service already, and if you're sharing that among more than one computer you might even have a wireless router already.

    You're welcome - and by the way, that's the router I've used for quite some time now and it's been rock solid, works great.  There are newer models out there of course, but I don't think you'll gain anything with the Roku by spending more.  Just make sure to enable the wireless security unless you don't mind neighbors using your internet!  

  • Anonymous Dec 26, 2008

    Either one will be fine - if there's a price difference get the cheaper one.  If they're the same, get the v6.  I just checked out the specs on what that means, and it will have no effect on the roku player.

How do I connect Mobil with TV roku


Hello friends...

Use a wire to connect. Nearly all smartphones and tablets can plug into an HDMI-ready TV. One cable end plugs into your phone or tablet while the other plugs into the HDMI port on your TV. Once connected, whatever you display on your phone will also show up on your TV.

ROKU STICK IS NOT STARTING AUTOMATICALLY.


Check plug in roku stick and in electrical outlet for a good connection pull out and push back in..Their is a small reset button on ROKU,push it ,it will then show a blinking white light,if not you may have a bad roku stick.

Cant connect to the wireless net work


You probably have a slow internet connection. It is recommended that you have a minimum 25/25 Mbps connection from your provider. If you do then the Roku might be too far from your wireless router. Try to move the router closer to the Roku if possible. The best way to watch streaming video is with a wired Ethernet connection with a Roku 2 or other wired device.

  • Roku - starting, please wait.
  • Roku - launching home screen.
  • Welcome to the Roku player.
    • Press "OK" to begin.
  • Settings - you will be given 2 options to connect the player to your router:
    • Wired - Ensure one end of the network cable is connected to the network port on the back of the Roku player, and the other to an available port on the home router.
      • Click the "wired" option to continue.
    • Wireless - on the subsequent screens, you will select your wireless network name and enter security password for your wireless network.
      • Click the "wireless" option to continue.
  • Upon successful network connection, the Roku player will then automatically obtain and install the latest software. After the software update the player will reboot.

Step 4: Let's complete the guided setup!
Just follow the on-screen instructions.
  • After the restart, you will be asked to select your time zone.
  • Change to your correct time zone then click "done".
  • The next screen will display a unique code to link your Roku player.
