Help! I just received my Roku HD-XR today, and I can't get it to connect to the local network.
I have a TrendNet TEW-652BRP Wireless N Router. I use WPA, and do not do any MAC filtering. It has the latest version of the firmware.
I first was sure that it was a signal strength problem since the TV where we're hooking this up is one floor up and on the opposite side of the house, so I repositioned the router which took the signal strength indicator on my laptop (when in the same location as the Roku unit) from "low" to "very good"; I will likely do more positioning to see if I can get it to "excellent" but I would think that I should be able to connect with "very good!"
I changed it to channel 11 since that's the least used channel for any other signal we can pick up here, though I tried 1 and 6 while trying to get this to work. I assigned a static IP to see if that might help, and it doesn't. I disconnected the power from the Roku a bunch of times, ditto for the router, didn't help.
Some other random settings on the router, that I have no idea if they are relevant or not: It's running mixed g/b/n mode. Channel width is set to "auto 20/40 Mhz" (it was originally set to 20 and I changed it to see it if helped. It didn't.).
I don't know what else to check or try.
It gives me the green light on "connecting to wireless network" but then gives me the error screen after it tries "connecting to your local network."
I just bought this router within the past year so I'd prefer to not replace it, and someone in the forums did verify that it works with his system, so any other suggestions that you might have are appreciated.
Any suggestions that anyone can make are very much appreciated. Thanks!
