How To Find Your Roku Ip Address Without Remote

  • A Roku unit has no innate IP number. The IP is assigned to the Roku by your router each time a net connection is established, so until the Roku is set up and connected to the net, it has no IP number.
  • The first two lines are what you need. In the first line, make the IP address pattern match your network. The default IP address will work for most people, but if you made any changes to your network, ensure the configuration matches. The next line lets you specify the number of Rokus on your network and start scanning to find them.

I moved recently and lost my Roku remote in the process. I have the app for the phone, but I can’t connect the two without the Roku’s IP address. I am on a new WiFi, so I can’t connect the Roku to it without the remote. EDIT: borrowed someone else’s remote, worked like a charm.

Im trying to use my roku without a remote but all of the threads I have read seem to be speaking to people that have a knowledge of writing code and what not. I am using a mac and have tried remoku but for some reason when I enter my I address nothing happens. This might be because I am using my internet IP address and not the roku's IP address but without my remote I do not know how to find the address. Everyone keeps saying just use the 8080 port but again I have absolutely no clue what that means. If someone could please just give me some step by step directions that I can actually comprehend I would greatly appreciate it.
