Trekkeriii and All,
Still having connection problems with both a first and second gen Roku box. To date this is all, that I can immediately recall, that has been attempted to remedy:
Complete reboot of all devices on network, modem, router
Several router setting changes with power cycling as needed including, switching from auto 20MHz-40MHz to 20MHz, dedicating various channels including 1,6,11 on the 2.4GHz band. Disabling 5GHz band, disabling firewall, disabling WPA2 Personal security, creating new password, switching the boxes physical locations, adding recommneded static DNS addresses, factory reset of one of the units, and I may be forgetting some others adjustments, however, even with mix and matching all of these settings, rebooting as needed, etc, both boxes would connect to access point always, sometimes one would connect under certain cicumstances and the other would not, after switching rooms, the box that was performing would then not, but, both boxes had worked in both rooms, literally feet apart, at times......to give a short back history, I have had gen one since 2009 and gen 2 since 2011, there has been no changes, additions, adjustments to my router or network since BOTH boxes quit connecting only 4 days ago. Sure I have had them drop, had to power cycle or reconnect to network, but never anything like this. Two different models of differenet age.
I am looking for anything that I could have possbily missed in the hours spent trouble shooting this yesterday. Currently, Roku has offered to replace my gen 2 model still under warranty. It was the least to eliminate the possibility that both are faulty, and that happend on literally the same day, as I had used both this past weekend. I fear it will not be resolved with a new box as once I was able to get the gen 1 to connect in one room, it would not in the other, and again, would not when returned....basically it is totally hit or miss if one or the other box will connect in either room under various settings on the router which has literally never been an issue days ago, nothing on my end has changed.....please help! And thank you so much in advance!
