Darren Moore’s side had Bailey Peacock-Farrell to thank after he saved Kieran Sadlier’s penalty in the first half to keep the score level.
Florian Kamberi put the Owls ahead assisted by a Callum Paterson cross to give Wednesday the lead in the 50th minute.
The victory was secured in the 77th minute when Lee Gregory pounced on a mistake by goalkeeper Victor Johansson.
Rotherham, who were relegated along with Wednesday last season, have two wins and two defeats from four games.
Wycombe and Portsmouth also remain unbeaten
Sam Vokes’ headed goal from a Jordan Obita cross in just the third minute was enough for Wycombe Wanderers to claim a 1-0 victory against Lincoln City.
Our perfect start at Adams Park continues.

David Stockdale denied the Imps from leveling the score as he saved Adam Jackson’s header. Vokes then almost doubled Gareth Ainsworths’ side lead as his deflected shot hit the post.
Stockdale saved the day again as he denied Teddy Bishop from close range to make sure his side took all three points. The result puts the Chairboys second in the table but only behind on goal difference.
Portsmouth also find themselves on 10 points alongside Sheffield Wednesday and Wycombe but sit third in the table on goals scored.
Pompey’s goal tally was not helped as they drew 0-0 with Doncaster Rovers.
Shaun Williams had a chance to give Danny Cowley’s side the lead from the penalty spot but Pontus Dahlberg’s save was enough to earn Donny a point.
Shrewsbury yet to get a point
Shrewsbury Town’s poor start to the division continued after they were defeated 3-0 at home to Plymouth Argyle.
Ryan Hardie’s curling effort gave the visitors the lead in the first half. Luke Jephcott doubled their lead in the 50th minute with a cool finish.
Hardie then scored his second of the day with a dinked finish which secured the victory for his side and inflicted more pain on the Shrews.
The result makes Steve Cotterill’s side the only team in the division to still be without a single point.
First wins for Fleetwood and Cambridge
Fleetwood Town claimed their first victory of the season with Shaydon Morris’ last minute winner enough to secure a 3-2 victory over Cheltenham.
Cambridge United also secured their first win of the season with a 3-0 defeat of Burton Albion thanks to two own goals by Tom Hamer after Sam Smith’s opener.
MK Dons came from behind twice to draw 2-2 with Ipswich Town. The result leaves the Tractor Boys still looking for their first win of the season.
Eoin Doyle’s winner in his 50th appearance for the club earned Bolton Wanderers a 2-1 victory over Oxford. Ian Evatt’s side have made a very good start to the season after being promoted from League 2 last season; they have eight points from four games.
Wigan Athletic beat Charlton Athletic 2-0 at the Valley. The Addicks have now lost their last three games.
Accrington Stanley overcame Crewe Alexandra 1-0 thanks to a Michael Nottingham goal against his former club.
Gillingham beat Morecambe 2-1 thanks to a penalty from Vadaine Oliver and a spectacular strike from Mustapha Carayol.
Carl Whinchester’s second half goal gave Sunderland a 1-0 victory over AFC Wimbledon.
