Network settings

Choose a network setting method from the following.

Characteristics of radio wave frequency bands

    5 GHz frequency band
  • Normally not used by devices other than routers. As a result, it provides very reliable connections and stable performance.
  • Offers faster communication speeds than the 2.4 GHz band.
  • More sensitive to obstacles such as walls and floors than the 2.4 GHz band. Radio waves become weaker over longer distances communication.
  • Older Wi-Fi devices may not support the 5 GHz band.
    2.4 GHz frequency band
  • Offers superior penetration of obstacles such as walls and floors, allowing radio waves to travel longer distances.
  • Supported by most Wi-Fi devices.
  • Prone to congestion and unstable performance because it is used by a wide variety of products.
    (In an apartment or condominium building, for example, you may also experience radio wave interference from devices in other rooms.)

The speaker is frequently disconnected. Is this unit or the Wi-Fi router placed on the floor?
The radio signal condition is poor in locations close to the floor.
Place them on a desk or similar object so that they are about 1 m above the floor.
  • When you are using multiple ALL speakers and some of them are not displayed sometimes, we recommend placing the Wi-Fi router at the center of your house so that all the speakers will be at an equal distance from the router.
  • Turn on and off the router.
    Another router nearby may be using the same channel, causing interference.
  • We recommend that you reset the router by turning it off and on.
    If you have multiple routers, reset each of them one by one, rather than at once.

    Devices with motors (dishwashers, etc.) and devices that emit radio signals may cause radio signal interference.
    Leave at least about 10 cm of space on all sides of the router and ALL speaker.
    In addition to metal objects, walls adversely affect the antenna performance.
    Is the channel fixed to a particular setting by the Wi-Fi router?
    We recommend that you set the channel to AUTO.
