How do I connect my speaker to Wi-Fi?

Make sure your speaker is turned on, and select the Wi-Fi option via the Source button. The Wi-Fi indicator light should pulse slow and steady until connected.



How do I network my speakers?

We recommend connecting speakers to the Play-Fi app one at a time.  Start by downloading the Play-Fi app to your phone or tablet. Next, open the Wi-Fi settings on your device and select "Play-Fi Device" from the available options. Once you are connected, the Play-Fi software will automatically find your speaker and connect it to the network for you. Once your setup is complete, you can name your speaker and get the party started!
