I recently purchased a Roku 2 XS and am having trouble connecting to my network because I live in a building that provides my internet. I don't have access to the actual router or the wall jack. The first time we used the internet in our apartment we had to open internet explorer and set up a password with our e-mail (although I haven't had to type in the password since...)
When I connect to the wireless on my Roku, it doesn't prompt me to type in a password (because it would only prompt me after opening an internet browser). I've tried to set up an ad hoc connection using my computer which runs Windows Vista, however every time I create an ad hoc network, I lose the connection to my building's wireless and then my Roku still can't connect to the internet.
I have also tried connecting my computer to the Roku with an ethernet cord (while being connected to my buildings wireless; but I still can't get it to connect.
Has anyone figured out a way around this/these problems?
