ROKU Error 014--No connection to WiFi (Even though it found your Network!!)

I cut the cable quite a while ago.  Not that I gave up on the cable company itself--I have Xfinity now, but I've had others in the past.  Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, beats cable WiFi.  And I don't much want to hear your mealy-mouth about the alternatives either..

I've got a ROKU box attached to every TV in the house that's not a ROKU TV.  I've had them for a long time and have upgraded on occasion.  I now have two ROKU 3's in the mix, and they occasionally have trouble connecting to my network, even though they have found the network and listed it.

Every time that happened, I did the dance that we all do, given the circumstances:  Re-boot the ROKU.  Let it cool off.  Curse.  Put the WiFi password in again. Try connecting to the only open network in the neighborhood. Remove and replace the memory card. Curse again. Try a different HDMI cable.  Re-boot the router.  Wait until tomorrow or watch a different TV.

Today, I decided to try to actually fix it, and here's what I found:

It's sort of geeky, but it works.

I love my ROKU boxes and ROKU TVs.  I've tried other streamers, and they all pale in comparison.
