I had the same problems as others mentioned. My new Roku HD worked fine for two days, then all of a sudden couldn't connect to our router, even though it showed full signal strength, and password unchanged. I did the software reset with no help, tried connecting to my neighbors router, etc. all with no results.
I read multiple posts about allowing the router to "ping", and of course, there are no settings in my router for that.
Afterwards, the test was fine, I went back to the Roku, and "VOILA!" it was back to normal and working fine.
My computer had installed a new Java update. I suspect that is the culprit.

The only place I see my firewalls is in the control panel of my computer. I've had problems in the past with viruses and am leery of cutting off the firewalls. Will that endanger my computer?

change your dns to a public one and see if that doesn't help with netflix -- google is good (18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124. ) I also hear that 126.96.36.199 is good
9 times out of ten when one has choppy playback or excessive buffers on netflix it is a dns issue and though they deny it I am almost certain that some cable ISP's are trying to actively block the roku stream to netflix --streamers are beginning to scare them
