Ipad app certainly seems better, however android and windows still work 50% of the time.
There are so many threads about this, when are Bose going to do something about this!

I'm using an iMac and a SoundTouch20 and have been having problems for months. The ST20 loses connection to the router two or three times per hour, for anywhere from five to 15 seconds. It's VERY annoying. It started to happen after an update last summer. Most of the time, I'm listening to internet radio but sometimes I'm playing music from my iTunes library. The router is nearby the ST20 and the signal is strong.
Can't BOSE do anything about this? I was planning to buy more SoundTouch systems for my home but won't consider it until this is fixed.

System does not function properly. I've bought a soundtouch 300 soundbar, reset my router (Huawei GH655d) multiple times, set a static channel, enabled uPNP, prevented the router from renewing the DHCP lease. Sounds like enough effort from my side. Apart from this connectivity issue, the soundtouch is working quite well, as I can listen to the preset radio channels using the remote. It is connected to my WiFi but my app just doesnt find the speaker.
@Moderators: make me laugh and suggest I reset my systems :D. Or even better, take this problem seriously and fix it.

Hi Michael_F and RKim, I do have exactly the same issue. The app is not always able to connect to my SoundTouch 300 system while the WiFi connection on the ST300 is still active since Interradio is working fine via the remote control preset selections. A power-down, wait 30 sec and power-up again of the SB300 fixes this but this is no real option/solution. The power plug is no switch and this should not be needed every few days max a week... Ialso have the Technicolor TC7200U provided by my internet provider Ziggo in the Netherlands.@Michael_Fdid you already find out which setting to change in the modem?Thanks for your help since I'm getting tired of this bug which is there since I have the SB300 including Virtually Invisible 300 speakers setup. Kindregards, Gert-Jan.
I have duplicated the issue when enabling the iOS SoundTouch widget on iPad. Once the widget was in use, the full app could not detect my other speakers on the network. I had to reboot iPad in order the break the connection, so that the full app could detect my speakers again. I discovered this 'bug' as a result of participating in this thread.
Prior to enabling (and using) the widget, the January update has been working great for me across 3 platforms (Windows, iOS, Android) when using the full ST app.

Sorry to be so long before trying this -- have been on the road for a couple of weeks.
The Wave updated last night to 17.0.12. (Forgot to mention that App is 'Protocol Version 59)
I'm not sure what you mean by 'set static IP' -- that would have to happen on the Bose side and I don't see a way to do that. I did go over to the router and set the DHCP server to add a reserved address for the SoundTouch -- then rebooted the Bose (but not the router). That may have stablilized it somewhat, but it did not fix the problem.
[By the way -- I want to note that this thread seems to have split into two coversations: one in which the App can't reliabley talk to the Bose (my problem), and on in which the Bose loses connection to whatever it is streaming from the internet.]

I can confirm that the update did not solve it for the ST 300.
And unfortenately it didn't solve it for me neither for my ST 300..... After a ST 300 power down/up it stays connected for sometimes a day or a few days but in the end the connection from the app (iPhone IOS 11.2.2) to the ST 300 breaks again. When is Bose finally going to fix this? I paid the full price for the equipment but can just use half the functionality of it for more than a half year now.... This is not the idea when I decided to go for such a strong, but also expensive, brand as Bose!!
