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!

  13. My computer will not detect the roku. My remote I downloaded on my iPhone is telling me I need the Roku IP address. My dog destroyed the original. Just upgraded to uverse with ATT and now my remote does not work.

  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.
