Roku devices are an affordable way to connect your screens to a variety of streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. One of Roku’s best features is the ability to control your device using the Roku mobile app. However, if you run into problems trying to connect your Roku device and your smart device, you may need to make the connection manually, which requires you to have your Roku IP address.
In this post, we’ll show you how to find your Roku IP address with your Roku remote on your device, and also without a Roku remote.
With Roku Remote
To find your Roku IP address using your Roku remote control, follow these steps:
Step 1: Press the “Home” button on your Roku remote to navigate to your Roku home screen.
Step 2: Select “Settings” in the menu on the left side of the Roku home screen.
Step 3: Select “Network” in the Settings menu.
Step 4: Select “About” in the Network menu.
Information associated with the network that specific Roku device is connected to will be displayed on the right side of the screen. You can find the IP address for your specific Roku device in the IP Address field.
Without Roku Remote
If you don’t have the remote associated with the Roku device you want to find the IP address for and you can’t navigate the on-screen menus, another way you can find your Roku IP address is through your router’s admin panel. For example, if you have a Netgear router, you can log into your account and click “Attached Devices” on the left side of the screen to see the list of devices connected to your wireless router. At that point, you just need to locate the Roku device you want to find the IP address for and then locate that device’s IP address in that row of information. While the naming conventions may be different, a similar section should be available in the admin panel associated with other router brands that let you easily find this information.
In conclusion, finding your Roku IP address is a straightforward process that can be accomplished both with and without a remote. Knowing your Roku’s IP address is essential if you want to connect your Roku device to your smart devices.
