This is most likely the case. Also, try rebooting your entire system, deleting the channels and then rebooting before re-adding, etc. The Roku Tips thread in this forum contains most of the trouble-shooting steps you need to get up and running again.

And if that were the case, then why would the other 5 wifi devices in my house continue to work perfectly during this interference? My setup hasn't changed in 2 years, and the only delta that I can see is the most recent firmware update. I'm curious as to why the general consensus around here seems to be that it's my fault or my setup, even when I see other similar posts?

I recently changed the setting from "Mixed" to "Wireless-G Only," and this -- at least thus far -- appears to have greatly increased stability of the signal to my Roku.

I never have to worry about a porn loving next door neighbor or for the love of GOD, the dreaded microwave oven interference while I am streaming from Plex, Netflix or Amazon Prime. ***!!!GO WIRED IF YOU CAN!!!***. Wireless is not secure and from what I have seen on this forum, most if not all connectivity issues are attributed to a wireless connection.
