There's no doubt about it. Roku will not work without an internet connection. The video comes across the internet. Also, a dialup connection won't work, it's not fast enough. You need an Internet connection with a speed of at least 1.2 Mbps
I understood that TW would not connect my Roku. They told me that right off the bat. Competition. It is very easy to connect, so I have that covered. Directions are on the Roku site. Thanks for the info on the wireless. I assumed that I would have to step up to RR wireless. Thanks again.
Ludite here.. Bear with me. I have a tv and Time Warner cable box on my third floor in the front of my house. I have my laptop/modem/router on the second floor at the back of the house. There's only one and almost 2 wifi bars showing on my phone. Is that enough to get the Roku? Should I get a repeater to boost the signal or can I plug the Roku into my TV's cable, or yet another twist, split the cable before it goes into the TV and plug the roku in there? Many thanks...
