Hi pbuck, 

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community. 

 

I can confirm that the Home Speaker 500 is Wi-Fi compatible and the supported wireless network standards are 802.11 b/g/n/ac.

 

I hope this clears things up for you. 

 

Do let me know if you have any further questions.

 

Warm regards,

Re: Bose 500 home speaker

hi Charlotte,

 

thanks for your response.

I do have a follow up question; will the Home speaker 500 require multicast?

If so, would you know what multicast IP it uses?

 

I ask, because we are looking to enable these speaker in a Corporate level RF network and I am thinking that multicast filter may be needed. If so, I may have to generate a new SSID and enable/disable some of the .11e functions.

 

Sincerely

pbuck

Hi there @pbuck and thank you for your patience regarding this!

 

After looking into this further for you, I would normally recommend that you have the following settings matched on a network to allow Enterprising hardware to be used:

 

-Multicast - Enabled.

-Enterprise Security - Disabled.

-UPnP - Enabled.

-Bonjour - Enabled.

 

As far as Multicast itself is concerned, this would use port 5353 (UDP).

 

I hope this helps, and please let me know if you have any further questions!
