Roku device not connecting to the internet could be because of conflicting DNS settings in your router. Follow the instructions mentioned below to resolve the issue.
Step 1. Open your web browser and type in your IP address in the URL field. In case you do not know your IP address, open your command prompt/ command line, and type ipconfig. All your network details will be displayed here including IP address.
Step 2. You will be redirected to the admin login page for your router settings. Enter the username and password as provided by your ISP. In case you do not know the login details, look under the device as most of the manufacturers print it there or contact your ISP.
Step 3. Once logged into your router, go to the WAP or Internet settings. On this page, you will notice a box for DNS. Generally, the cause for your Roku device to not work is due to conflicting DNS settings. So set DNS1 to 18.104.22.168 and DNS2 to 22.214.171.124.
Step 4. Save your settings.
Step 5. Run your Roku streaming device again, if you are still not able to get a connection, hard reset your router and then try connecting to it.
Connecting your Roku device to your home network should work pretty smoothly and should be as simple as connecting any other phone to the network. Since you are facing issues with the network I will discuss a few troubleshooting techniques to resolve the problem. Follow them carefully:
1. Update your router drivers/ firmware: If the other devices are working fine and the problem you are facing is with your Roku device, then try updating your router's drivers and firmware. These are free of cost and can be easily downloaded from your vendor's official website.
2. Reset your Roku Device: The Roku device is configured to automatically detect your home network and connect to it, all you need to do as a user is to enter the password for your wifi. Since the issue seems to be with the Roku device, try resetting your Roku device and see if the issue is resolved.
3. Change DNS Settings: If the above-given step did not help you resolve the problem then chances are there is some conflict of DNS settings in your router to that of preset by Roku. So get access to your router settings and change the DNS settings to automatic, this will enable your network to provide automatic IP address without bothering about the DNS settings.
4. Update software on your Roku Device: if any of the above-mentioned steps did not help you resolve the issue then chances are your Roku device is at fault. Go to your Roku device application and navigate to software update. Download the necessary software and update your Roku device and then try connecting to your router again.
Hopefully, these steps helped you in getting to a solution. In case you have any further doubt or query, feel free to respond and I will be glad to help!.
