Can't Access Roku - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Roku went down about 1:30 hours ago after working fine during the day. It allows a program to be loaded, plays a short while then buffers itself to death. Have reset everything. Including wifi in house. But it's Roku. All other devices in house working, but Roku.

All my roku apps (Amazon for example) work, but not netflix. It has been this way for the past week or more. Vancouver Washington. I can choose something to view on netflix but when I engage "play" I get the message "Unable to complete the requested action". Do I need a new player (don't see why) or is it a Netfilx problem (seems likely) or maybe a combination? Rebooting the roku doesn't work (why would it when everything else works?), frustrating.
BTW works on the computer.

Netflix TV episode service interruption - Thursday 1/23/2014

Roku Support posted this on Jan 23 12:51

Netflix and Roku are aware of an issue affecting the availability of specific TV content on Netflix. There is no need to troubleshoot or reset your player at this time, not all Roku models are affected. Netflix is currently working on resolving this, future updates will be provided in this thread.

I go to the site, enter the code... then wait, wait, and more wait. When I finally get past entering the code, I then get to a point where I enter my C/C information. I then wait, wait, and wait some more. Finally, I just close the session. Waiting for Online Chat now to hopefully resolve the problem ... but due to the wait time, others are apparently having problems too. this is a total FAIL on Roku's part.

Down in Ypsilanti, MI. I've had a Roku HD for a couple of years and it has worked with minimal issues. Was watching it earlier this afternoon w/o incident. This evening I fired up a brand new Roku 2 XD and tried to set it up. It initially connected to my wireless network w/o an issue. Then when I tried to stream netflix from it, I kept getting the "cant connect to the internet code 010" internet error. I tried my old Roku HD and it too is giving the same error when trying to access netflix. Now I'm having trouble accessing my other Roku channels like Crackle,, Amazon Instant Video. When I access them they bounce me back to the home screen. I've reset both my comcast modem and my airport extreme but still no love for the Roku boxes. All my other internet devices (computers, tablets, phones) are working fine.
