Technician's Assistant: How's your WiFi signal strength? Can you connect to the Internet using a computer or another device?

And yes the letters are correct

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried restarting both your digital media player and your router?

No, do both at the same time or does it matter

Do you still need help with the setup?

I had responded back saying I figured out the problem BUT I have another one. When I try to watch Gran Tour on Prime or anything it will not open and comes up with a screen saying the bandwidth is to low. I am on a Verizon wireless network, I have a download speed of 20.66 right now. I used my range extender to hook up to instead of directly to the wireless router. Could that be the problem if so you'll have to tell me how to change it. Or will it just not work on a wireless system. Seems very slow and doesn't fill in all the boxes with all that is available when I open Prime.

Is anybody going to respond?

Hello again!

Yes, the extender will split your bandwidth so it may not be sufficient for HD viewing.

You could try temporarily setting up the Roku closer to your router to get maximum bandwidth availability and you should notice that it works ok there.

For best wireless results you could consider using a home mesh rather than an extender:

OK, I bought the extended to boost the signal out to my shop for my thermostat. But having said that the Roku is about 30' line of sight across my living room. So how do I change the network name so it accesses my router.
