Re: ["Fixed"] What is wrong with Roku 2XS wifi?

Well this is bizarro. Since others report WPA2 working fine for them, I tried switching back (from WPA to WPA2), and now that's fine for me too! What the what?!?!? I mean, I've tried four routers, restarted the Roku multiples times, deleted and re-established the Roku wireless connection multiple ti...

Re: ["Solved"] What is wrong with Roku 2XS wifi?

I use WPA2 with all my boxes, so what ever the problem is, it's not that. Wait, WPA2-PSK/AES works fine for you on Roku 2XS, measured speed is the same as your other wifi devices? Well, now I'm totally at a loss. At least I've got my wifi speed issue taken care of, but sure would like to understand...

Re: ["Solved"] What is wrong with Roku 2XS wifi?

Just tried a FOURTH router, borrowed from neighbor, with same result. Finally thought to try different security settings. Have been using WPA2-PSK/AES ... Roku connects happily with this, so clearly it's supported ... right? But when I changed from WPA2 to WPA (still PSK/AES) all of a sudden my spee...

Re: What is wrong with Roku 2XS wifi?

I just remembered that my Roku 2XS was a refurb from Newegg. I wonder if this unit was returned by its original owner because of poor wifi performance, then got resold to some sucker (me)? :|

Re: What is wrong with Roku wifi?

I know you said you tried 3 different routers, but it still may be a router problem. My old router (which had to be replaced as I could no longer game on my consoles due to its refusal to allow anything other than strict NAT even with the firewall turned off completely) was much faster* with the Ro...

Re: What is wrong with Roku wifi?

It's the Sling TV app.. It's terrible! The Roku is not at fault if everything else on it, besides Sling TV, works fine, as is the case for me.. Sling needs to fix their crappy Roku app.. Errr, I think you're talking about a different problem. I'm not using the Sling TV app, and I am seeing slowness...

Re: What is wrong with Roku wifi?

Wifi channels at my address are pretty much equally (but only moderately) congested. But here's the thing: if I put my iPhone or my laptop at the exact same spot as the Roku, they get full speed wifi. So there obviously isn't any debilitating wifi interference or signal-blockage at this spot. There ...

Re: What is wrong with Roku wifi?

Update. I got a new router, no improvement in roku wifi speeds. This now makes three routers that I've tried. Also tested with a direct Ethernet connection and got full speed (max that my ISP provides me) at the roku. There is definitely something wrong with the wifi in the Roku.

Re: What is wrong with Roku wifi?

Make sure your router is not using 802.11e/WMM QoS. When my router's firmware updated, it turned that on as default. It dropped my wireless speed from 30 (60+ wired) to 1.5mbps. Confirming that QoS is disabled. And the key point that's puzzling and frustrating me is that every other device in my ho...

Re: What is wrong with Roku wifi?

Are you having any issues streaming any of your programming? Yeah, I get occasional buffering and apps that won't load properly. Not all the time, but often enough to cause me to investigate. Mine gets between 8 and 10 mbps.. Try using the Vudu channels' speed test too.. Thanks, didn't know about t...

["Fixed"] What is wrong with Roku 2XS wifi?

I've got a Roku 2XS, wifi connection to router 15 feet away (in a closet). Roku setup menu reports that wifi connection strength is excellent. If I put my iPhone right on top of my Roku and run the Speedtest.net app, it shows 12Mbps download speed ... that's the speed that my internet provides, and ...

Re: Buffering problem with Roku 1 and Comcast

Jengle, what wifi router do you have? Comcast gave me the Arris TG862G; from what I read in various forums, it's an absolute dog for streaming.

Re: Buffering problem with Roku 1 and Comcast

I've just switched to Comcast Xfinity and am all of a sudden having exactly the same problem (except I have a Roku 2XD). I previously had 4mbps DSL, never any buffering issues, and always full resolution streaming from Netflix, PBS, etc. Now I'm on 12mbps Comcast, and I'm constantly getting bufferin...

Roku Media Player will also play all the videos, you just need to hit PLAY on the folder instead of going into the folder.

Thanks RokuDale, that's great to know! BTW, are the features and controls of the Roku Media Player channel documented on the website? Did look but couldn't find it.

Re: MP4 playback: "play all" random

SOLVED: Nowhere USB will do continuous play. Instead of pressing OK to start, press the Play/Pause button. It will play the selected file, then keep going in sequence from that file onwards. Found this tip buried in the Nowhere USB thread in this forum.
