SoundLink Air wifi issues
I've had my SoundLink Air for a number of years now, and it's always been fine. About a year ago, it stopped connecting to my WiFi network. I tried as many troubleshooting steps at the time, gave up and put it in a cupboard. Before I send it off for recycling I thought it'd be worth checking here for something I might have missed.
Issue: WiFi icon continuously flashes blue and the device won't connect.
Troubleshooting steps tried:
1. Connect the device to a PC or Mac (I've tried both) and run the setup application. When I plug the unit in with a USB cable the application reports "An error has occurred" To resolve this issue, disconnect, reconnect and try again. I've tried multiple times, and always get the same error.
2. Holding the reset button for 10 seconds. The manual says the WiFi light should begin to flash amber, but mine just stays solid amber. Connecting the device to the computer then has the same error as mentioned above.
3. Hold the reset button for 2 seconds and the WiFi indicator will turn orange, wait 30 seconds for a audio tone, and then connect to the "Bose SoundLink Air Network". I see the orange WiFi indicator, but I don't receive an audio tone, and I don't see a WiFi network to connect to from my phone or computer.
Is there a way to forcefully re-flash the software on the device from a PC or any other steps I can try?
Thanks in advance,
