How to find Roku IP address

As you may know you can find the Roku IP address by looking at the Roku Settings->PalyerInfo->IP address.
and you may also noticed my earlier post regarding using an Webapp http://www.apps4tv.com/remoku/ to control Roku.

But what if you lost your remote or it is not near to you. I am following this simple trial and error process.
Most of the times my Roku IP address  dynamically changing to one of these IP addresses for my eHome wireless G router.
192.168.0.101
192.168.0.102
192.168.0.103
192.168.0.104
192.168.0.105

If you are not switching off the Roku device then the IP address wont be changing.

  2. I figured out the issue..... On your computer go to network and sharing center. You will see your computer, your network, and the internet. Click on your network. Once inside your router, your computer will see the roku player. Click on it and you'll see the ip address and mac address. All the info that you will need. Make sure network discovery is on.

  3. Drew, thank you so much! My kiddos lost the remote for their Roku and we have turned the house upside down trying to find it! I was a little worried about having the money for a new remote until payday. I found a free app for my phone but it needed the IP address. Your tip helped me find it and now I can rest easy until payday!

  14. Thank you drew it worked. For those who couldn't find there roku player in your network. Try this go to desktop and look for file explorer, open it.On the left of the pop up screen you will see network icon on the bottom left. Click on it and it will show you your network ,your computer and roku player. sometimes your roku player wont show,so you have to set up a new connection or network.click on it and add your roku player.once you roku player is found click on it and it will give you your ip address.

  18. I lost my Roku remote guys but I can't get the ip eddress with out it.--is there another way to get the address from the tv

    ReplyDelete
  19. Okay. It works sometimes, but not other times. Roku ip not changing.

    Why does native remote work all the time, but droid needs the ip, which may or may not allow device control.

    Why does a scan not work, but manually typing ip work half the time?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well, the scan works every blue moon.

  21. If you don't have an ethernet cord like me, you can download a universal remote app (Sure Universal worked for me). From there you can change the wifi on the roku. Then, you will be able to access the roku app which is easier to use. If it can't find the device, do manual. It will ask for the IP which will be under the wifi section of the roku. Both devices have to be under the same wifi in order to work. Good luck! Worked for me!

    1. This is so creepy. I had *just* sat down to Google how to resolve this exact problem, when I landed on this page and found your advice all the way at the bottom of the many comments I read. THANK YOU! Got it taken care of immediately! I don't know how it is that the only answer that would work for me happened to be posted just a few hours before I went looking for it, but, oh interwebs, you are a thing of amazing.

    2. I bought this roku 2 from a friend. It came with just the device. How do I find the IP address to set up the mobile remote app? I have no way to control the roku. Yet no way to find the ip address to set up the remote app

  23. Hi, I am the VP Marketing at Tekoia. We develop the SURE Universal remote app which was mentioned above by livvy05. We would really like to make our app as easy to use as the Roku app, so if any of you would like to give us input we would really appreciate it. We believe that all your remotes should be available in one app. If you would like to share your thoughts feel free to write to us at support@tekoia.com.

I am trying to connect manually and located my ip address but can't find my roku ip address. Since I can't get to settings, because the remote doesn't work, how can I find the roku ip address?

  27. Hello, can I watch Rocku just on my PC? Do I still need a TV? I can see the Roku Device on my wifi networks (I plugged in the PC's HDMI) and I downloaded two apps in mi windows 10 pc I type the rocku's IP but It says that cannot connect. My TV doesn't work so I can't see the menu on the TV screen.

    Thank you for your help!

  28. I'm having the exact same problems here, but none of the answers worked for me. I tried the router stuff to look for the IP address but couldn't find anything :(
    Is there any other way to get it, like using your roku's username or something?
    IT'S FRUSTRATING!! :'(
