The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.
Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.
Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.
Thanks for confirming this!
At this point, I think it would be beneficial to access your router settings and double-check that your settings are in line with what we recommend:
Wireless Isolation: Disable
IGMP Proxy: Disable
IGMP Snooping: Disable
Wi-Fi Radio or Radio Mode: Mixed or B/G/N
Stealth mode: Disable
MAC Filtering/Access Control: Disable, or add the Bose system MAC address to the allowed devices list
WAN IP Blocking: Disable
Recommended router settings for Bose product performance
Wireless channel: Fixed (select a specific channel); Auto-Channel selection is not recommended
Standard Wi-Fi uses 11 channels. Selecting the best channel might require trial and error. Choose channel 1 or 11 and observe the system to see if performance improves. If it does not, try the other channels until performance does improve
Security type: WPA-2(PSK) with AES Encryption
Some routers offer a mixed security mode of WPA (TKIP)/WPA-2 (AES) for compatibility with older products. Choose WPA-2 only if no networked devices depend on WPA or mixed mode. If unsure whether or not other networked devices will be affected, note the current security setting, switch to WPA-2 and try all other networked devices. If necessary, return to the previous security setting
This setting is intended to optimize streaming services but typically gives priority to voice or video streaming, which can negatively impact audio streaming or reserve bandwidth for voice or video devices even if they are off. Although disabling WMM is recommended, on some routers, enabling WMM improves performance. If WMM is disabled on the router and issues are experienced with your Bose product, enable WMM and check for improvement
Dual-Band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) SSID: Name both differently.
With routers that broadcast more than one network, give the networks distinct names. If your networks have the same name, products on the networks might not know the difference with the identical names. This can cause them to intermittently disconnect and reconnect to both bands.
Let me know how you get on!
I’m sorry but I was relying on bose to do
my home sound system, I haven’t changed anything on my configurations and due to a poor update on your app ( I suppose) you are asking me to to check all my configuration? You should be aware that you are selling a product to general consumers which are not supposed to be IT specialists to use your products. I have lots of Bose products ( speakers, headphones etc...) and I’m already regretting to not choose another company to rely on.

Same thing happens to me all the time since I bought it 3 years ago. Unreliable all the time. Worst system ever. I have changed internet companies, bought boosters, and same problem always. Shameful that whenever you have a visit you have to spend 30 minutes on your own just trying to connect the system to the internet.
Try logging out of the SoundTouch account, log back in, all your speakers should appear.

I have been loyal to Bose for what seems like forever and there's a reason. They sound great and they are RELIABLE. I have always been willing to pay a bit extra for the ease of knowing that the systems i put in place work but the app and these soundtouch speakers are becoming exhaustive.
THE APP DOES NOT WORK!!! Everytime i load it up it it does not find the 3 speakers i have around my house, then, after opening the app and closing it several times it will sometimes find the speakers. Great, then i start playing something and decide i want to change something and it has lost the speakers AGAIN?!!!
This is completely unacceptable from a company like Bose. Our relationship has always been so simple: I give you money and you give me a service worth paying for?!!!!
I have restarted the router and that made it work fine, for an hour and then it was back to square one. Sort your app out so that it discovers the speakers when you open it up NO IFS OR BUTS it simply finds them, allows them to be controlled and then turned off.
Do hope this can be done or i'll be moving onto a different brand, something I never ever thought i'd say.
@bigsleep2005 What did you change that resulted in the speaker disconnecting.?
Is one of your speakers near your wireless router?
Try logging out then back in to your SoundTouch account.
There is something causing your problems. There is nothing wrong with the app. In my experience the app works fine. Good luck with the troubleshooting.
