Re: Soundtouch 10 requires reboot to connect to WiFi
Another SoundTouch 20 here with WiFi connectivity problems following the 17.0.12 DHCP update. (Was working stably before the update.) Now it works for 'a day' or so and then requires a reboot in order to be seen by the iOS app (on two different iOS devices) or the MacOS app (on two different Macs running high sierra) or by the Spotify App (on MacOS and iOS).
Unexplicably, the Bose Soundtouch sits adjacent (< 12") to the WiFi router and typically reports only 'FAIR' or 'GOOD' signal.
Have tried assigning a static IP through the router - to no avail. Regardless of whetner the IP is static or dynamic (and regardless of lease time which has been set between 1 hr and 1 month to test varying scenarios) the device simply 'disappears' from being 'found' by apps or even http, every day or so.
Sometimes the SoundTouch can be found by one app on one iOS device while simultaneously not by another app on another device (Mac or iOS).
Factory reset. No difference. Drop and re-add to Bose account. No difference.
Would love to roll back to the firmware I was running in December. It was remarkably stable then (for a few months). For the first time in several years of ownership.
Have the need for 2-3 more devices in my home but any future purchases aren't likely to be in the Bose SoundTouch family. This long pattern of instability - without acknowledgement by Bose despite myriad customer complaints - is wholly unacceptable.
