Roku works perfectly once I make an internet connection, but it won't connect unless I power cycle my modem/router and the player. Occurs after Roku has been off a couple hours and occurs with both a wired or wireless connection. Power cycling my actiontec dsl modem/router and Roku always bring it back up and it works fine. Four call to support yielded people eager to help, but no permanent solution.
I have used a vast variety of wired and wireless devices with my actiontec modem (GT704-WG) without any problem, so I am inclined to believe my issue is roku specific. (I noticed another user with this problem said he got his player from Amazon, which I did as well. Maybe the batch Amazon is selling is defective.) For what it is worth, here's my wired connection: Actiontec is connected directly via ethernet cable to a netgear powerline adapter; the netgear adapter sends a wired signal via my house wiring to another netgear adapter at a different location; the latter adapter is connected via ethernet cable to my Roku player.
My next step will be to return my Roku player to Amazon and buy a blueray player with netflix capability.
