I apologize if this has been covered here in the forums but I couldn't find anything relevant in my searches.
I previously was able to connect to an unsecured wifi signal both on my computer and thru the Roku and everything worked perfectly.
I have just moved across town and started service with CLEAR using a mobile USB modem on the laptop to access the internet. The Roku device does not "see" the Wimax connection at all. I called CLEAR and they couldn't answer any questions; they said that it should work in a wired modem but that the USB device is a secure signal that the Roku couldn't pick up.
When I first spoke to the rep in sales, he said that he thought there was a software setting that would change the CLEAR device from Wimax to Wifi. Tech support could confirm no such thing, however they deferred from letting me speak to someone up the chain.
Has anyone had this issue or been able to connect wirelessly with a CLEAR usb modem? I called Roku CS and she told me that it wouldn't work if I connected a Cat 5 cable from the computer to the Roku. Is this true? Sounds to me like they (CLEAR) want me to lease/buy their modem/router. I have already purchased the Mobile device, so I don't need another modem/router in the house (the cat doesn't use the internet though she enjoys I Can Has Cheezburger - ha ha)
HELP!?!? I appreciate all info and suggestions you may have. Thank you!!
