How to Connect Roku to Wi-Fi Without Remote Iphone

If you have lost your Roku remote, then try the procedure below to connect the Roku device to the Wi-Fi network.

  • Step 1: Before starting everything, you will need two mobile phones — one for providing the mobile hotspot and the other for using the Roku remote app.
  • Step 2: Another thing is the Roku device cannot detect the mobile hotspot, which means you have to change the hotspot ID and password as the previous Wi-Fi network that your Roku device was connected.
  • Step 3: From the first iPhone that has an internet connection, launch the Settings app.
  • Step 4: Enable Personal Hotspot from the list of options.
  • Step 5:Connect the second iPhone to the mobile hotspot. The Roku device automatically detects and connects to the hotspot since it has the same network name as the one which is configured on it.
  • Step 6: Then, open the App Store and download the Roku remote app on the second iPhone.
  • Step 7: Launch the Roku remote app and tap on the remote icon, which is located at the bottom.
  • Step 8: Use the remote app to navigate and open the settings menu on the Roku TV.
  • Step 9: Turn on the new Wi-Fi network to which you want to connect the Roku TV.
  • Step 10: Go to the Network Settings and choose the network as the new Wi-Fi network.
  • Step 11: Now the Roku TV is connected to the new Wi-Fi network, so disable the hotspot connection.
  • Step 12: To access the Roku TV using the app, you need to connect the second iPhone to the new Wi-Fi network.
