Connecting to a Wi-Fi® network—Alternative set-up method

You can use this method to set up your speaker by first joining its own built-in Wi-Fi network and then connecting to your home Wi-Fi network.

On the speaker, simultaneously press and hold the Volume down and Play/Pause buttons for six seconds. When the upper and lower portions of the light ring glow amber, the speaker is broadcasting its own Wi-Fi network for setup

On your computer or mobile device, go to the Wi-Fi settings screen and connect to the network named “Bose Portable Home Speaker”

Open a web browser, type in the address bar and tap go/enter to open the speaker’s Wi-Fi set-up page

Select your Wi-Fi network from the drop-down list and enter its password. Note: If you don’t see your network, select “Manually Enter Wi-Fi”, and enter your network name, security type and password

Click Submit and wait while your product connects to the selected network

Once connected, reconnect your computer or mobile device to your normal network

Open the Bose Music app and tap the My Bose icon in the top-left corner, then tap the + icon to add the speaker to your account
