I have tried repeatedly shutting off and on the router, Roku, device. etc. As you can see, my computer is receiving strong internet.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I do not understand. The $28 is an additional fee from the original $5 and $30
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Jason, where are you?
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

Are you having troubles connecting the Roku or another device?

It is the Roku device.........I am getting a bit concerned...after paying by the minute. Does a phone call mean an additional $28 or is it included in $30 half hour?
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

You are not paying by the minute or hour. There is only one flat charge for the task.

I see that you requested a phone call for some reason. Was that a mistake?

Instead of calling you on the phone, may I remotely connect to a computer on your network so that I can help you fix this problem with the network?

Would rather a phone call
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

You would prefer to speak on the phone? A phone call will not help much at all. We can communicate on this page.

What do you want to say on the phone?

Jason, I want to get this resolved within the 30minutes. This is the first time I"ve tried your organization and hope it works. I have already typed in a number of times the problem. Roku device will not connect to internet despite strong signal. Each time it tells me that the setup has failed.
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

Thank you for the update. When you attempt to connect the Roku to the wireless signal, what happens? Does it ask for a password? Does it ask you to press the WPS button on the wireless router?

Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The network for computer is working just find. The tv network is working fine. The Roku will not connect. We have repeatedly turned off and turned on router, net gear, etc. and rebooted all devices installed. Roku worked up until last night when I attempted to add new channel, Acorn TV. and had to submit new password.
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

When are you asked for the password? Is it asking for the wireless password ***** some other type of password?

Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It doesn't ask us to press a wps button
or password
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

What happens? When are you asked for the password?

Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It asks for network set up. We hit the button for our network, the green lights ( 3 of them) show that network is hooked up, and then we get message, setup failed.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It does not ask for password
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

Which button are you referring to?

Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
sign says, to verify router security settings
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

Thank you for the update. May I connect with you remotely to troubleshoot the issue directly? When the remote session begins, we will be able to communicate back and forth via a chat window that will appear on your computer screen.

Since I do not know your organization, I am not comfortable using remote viewing. I do it with Mac Support but then again, I know them
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I also don't understand why there is not a live call.
Electronics Technician: Jason Jones, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

Okay, I very much understand. You want to talk on the phone. I will opt out of the question and allow another to take over.

Good luck.
