3 ways to find your Roku's IP address
Let’s be clear: you don’t need to know your Roku‘s IP address most of the time. It can, however, help in troubleshooting specific network issues, say by determining whether your Wi-Fi router is blocking or throttling your Roku’s connection. Here’s how to find Roku IP addresses in three different ways.
To find a Roku IP address, navigate to Settings > Network > About from your Roku device's homescreen. You can also check a device's system information via the official Roku remote app, or scan your network using Chrome's third-party Remoku browser extension.

How to find a Roku IP address using your remote
This should be your default method since it’s by far the easiest, and works regardless of network issues. From the Roku homescreen, go to Settings > Network > About, and you’ll see the IP address prominently displayed.
In fact, this conveniently reveals several other details, such as connection status and signal strength (for Wi-Fi connections). If it seems like something is blocking or throttling your Roku, it might be that it has a weak link to your router instead.

How to find a Roku IP address without a remote
By using the Roku app
- Open the Devices tab.
- Tap the triple-dot icon next to the Roku you’re concerned with.
- Tap View System Info.
By using a Chrome extension
Remoku is a third-party extension for Google’s Chrome browser, normally meant to allow remote control of a Roku from a PC. But coincidentally, a Settings option can be used to reveal the IPs of any Rokus active on your network.
- Download the Remoku extension from the Chrome Web Store.
- Open Remoku in Chrome. You may have to click on a puzzle icon to see a list of your extensions.
- Click on the Settings tab.
- Next to How Many Rokus, click Scan. Leave Chrome alone while the scan is in progress, or you may have to start over.
When Remoku’s scan is done, you should see the IPs of any Rokus on your network. Naturally, they won’t appear if they’re having connection problems, so this is just another alternative to using Roku’s mobile app.
