Portable home speaker won’t connect to anything

After working fine for several days my speaker lost connection to the internet 

I now can’t get it to connect to anything.

I’ve tried the factory reset which has removed it from my various devices but it now cannot locate any devices at all.

I’m running the app on an iPhone and an iPad and it can’t find either of them either through Bluetooth or WiFi


any ideas - thanks

Hi Adrian261,


Welcome to the Community, thanks for posting!

If you have factory reset your speaker, you will need to reconnect it to the internet and your other devices starting from the beginning as all previous connections to the speaker will have been forgotten. I'd recommend starting by getting it reconnected to the internet and the Bose Music app first by following the steps shown HERE


When you are trying to reconnect to your devices via Bluetooth, you will also need to forget the speaker from the Bluetooth device list on your iPhone and iPad if the speaker is still on the list. If you have any previous connections, the iPad and iPhone will be looking for a previous pairing to the speaker rather than establishing a new one.


Let me know how you get on!
