Tips to improve wireless connection to your Roku Streaming player
It often happens that you are having playback or connection issues though the signal strength is good. To fix the issue, check for wireless interferences. Microwave ovens, cordless phones or other wireless devices placed near the router can cause the interferences in Roku connectivity. So, keep the router away from such devices. Also, reduce the use of other devices which are accessing the network e.g. computers, mobile devices, game consoles and streaming players.
On the other hand, if your signal strength is poor or you face playback issues, try improving the signal quality. Take the router out from its cabinet. If the TV is placed between the router and Roku device, TV is the barrier in path of signals. Contact support department at our toll-free number 1-866-817-4499 in case of any technical issues.
