Thanks for finding this out! I remember you mentioning in your first post that your router is actually capable of operating on two different bands - 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
Your SoundTouch pedestal is only capable of operating on 2.4 GHz, however.
Therefore, we should still make sure that the 5 GHz band of your router is not being used. One easy way to do this is to turn 5 GHz off, even if we just test this temporarily.
Do you know how to turn 5 GHz off on your router? If not, feel free to confirm which brand and model number you have, then we should be able to advise you 🙂
Turned off 5Ghz frequency, but still the system unable to connect to the 2.4Ghz network, whereas my other devices are smoothly connecting to the same. Please find attached the error screenshot.
@dbag73 Thanks for doing this and letting us know the outcome. As it was still unsuccessful, it could be that your router is set to use 802.11 n and not 802.11 b/g. Are you able to check this through your router settings interface, or alternatively contact your internet service provider for them to check this for you? We have seen past instances where this has been the case, and although you're connecting to the 2.4 GHz band, it could still be using 802.11 n.
Let us know how you get on with this, and please do reach out if there's any confusion about anything.
I could not find the option in router interface to change the settings to 802.11 b/g/n, even service provider could not help in this, it seems the router comes by default with 802.11 n and does not support 802.11 b/g as it is obsolete nowadays. Is there any way to make the Bose system compatible with 802.11 n by updating the firmware or something else? Kindly help.
@dbag73, thanks for getting back to us. Let's try using the speaker in another location to test to see if this could be a range/interference issue. Let's also make sure everything is up to date using the steps here. We can also explore the recommended router settings. The recommended router settings for Bose product compatibility are:

Went through all options you suggested, but no luck. Does this Bose system support a 802.11 g/n network or only 802.11 b, because the router is providing only 802.11 g/n.
Sorry to hear this. I can confirm that 802.11 b/g/n Wireless Network Standards are supported.
