I was using Wave IV system for a few years. Everything was ok. Two weeks ago it lost connection to my WIFi. I made a pedestal reset, relinked Wave system to my WIFI via iOS app and ....
3 days ago I’ve noticed that I cannot stream music via AirPlay and TuneIn radio doesn’t work either. WiFi indicator was lid white. I’ve pressed Control button, WiFi indicator became yellow. I tried to search for a Bose-xxxx WiFi, no success. Rebooted router and Bose. Nothing.
I’ve made a factory reset on both pedestal and Wave system. I have connected system to my router via Ethernet cable. After factory reset on my router DHCP server Bose appeared with a different predefined name, so I assume factory reset was successful, SoundTouch Wave system has changed to its default name but iOS app does not detect the Wave IV system. I was trying Ethernet and WiFi connections as well.
then I tried to make a manual firmware update. I have found an instruction in this forum. I have downloaded the update file, opened the link http://203.0.113.1:17008/update.html. Selected the firmware file, clicked on UPLOAD. process has stopped at about 25%.
I have tried to update using USB drive. Made everything as described. During boot up flash drive led was flashing but no text like (system updating) didn’t appear on the screen. Wave IV system didn’t reboot. Flash drive stopped to flash. I was waiting for more than 15 mins. Nothing happened. When I press power button Radio turns on. When I select Aux/Bluetooth - only Aux is available.
when I navigate to the IP address of my Wave IV system (connected via Ethernet cable) using the browser on my PC I see the SoundTouch logo and two buttons X and “reload”
I’m stuck. Any ideas?
