I’m having the same problem.
BOSE(R) AL8 Homewide Wireless Audio Link
Cleared the wifi in the house on channel 1 and set up the AL8 so it doesn’t use channel 1. Below is the list in order on what channels will be avoided xl8 on each 3-second button push. Believe the problem is with the Bose Link AL8, but listed the other equipment in the title for completeness. The LED should turn off whenever a button on the remote is pressed.

I’ve unplugged the router and still get the same result. I will continue to troubleshoot. The AL8 and AR1s were engineered to operate on 2. With the system on steady green LED – start up completepress any button on the expansion remote while looking at the front of the control console.
Thank you for your reply. I’m sorry to hear that. Let’s unplug your router altogether at a time when noone in the household is using the internet and see if they connect.
A common practice at the time of the AL-8’s release was that residential routers were set to channel 6 and this would effectively avoid the conflict.
This used to work, but now it doesn’t. I have 2 receivers and one transmitter Curiously, have you tried the steps that have been outlined in the thread already? So they are talking it would seem I believe that both the tx and rx are talking as when powered on, they stay green for 20 seconds.
Should they connect to each other even without Bose Link to a Lifestyle console or an expansion set? I have done all that I know how to do and am a dead end Both near to be in the same area due to drops. These days most routers are set to channel hop or auto-detect so you’d need to log into your router and set the channel setting itself to 6 so it stays there.
I just noticed your post. Please, let us know. I’ve found it to be easier to actually just log into your router and set the channel to 6 so you don’t need to manually adjust the avoidance channel for the AL A push and hold of the button will get you to “No wifi network” the first time which is only used if you don’t have Wi-Fithen to avoid channel 6, then avoid channel 11, 1, 2, and so on. Then after 20 seconds at the same time, the transmitter turns solid orange while the 2 receivers start to blink green.
I’ve also tried the Bose Link “in” as well, but the same result. If the LED does not blink in response to each button press, the issue is the remote. Only 1 AL8 gives me this exact problem.
Unfortunately i can not move the wifi or the AL8. I plug in the AL1 AL8 and they go solid green after a few seconds, but they lose connection nose after about 20 seconds. My manual says that they default to avoid channel 11, but this is beside the point, as I tested while my WLAN was turned off completely.
There are two things that are most likely to get us closer to the issue:. Yes, the dip switches match. Thank you for giving a detailed explanation of your setup and troubleshooting steps taken. I plug them all in at the same time and they all stay green for 20 seconds. You may need to send a signal through to get them to recognize each other.
The transmitter tx and receiver rx for the AL8 aren’t communicating. Do you have any suggestions on isolating that broadcast? If they do, the issue is wireless interference and we’ll want to look at relocating the units until they work with the router on. There are two things that are most likely to get us closer to the issue: I also noticed that I get the same result if I have no Bose Link cables attached.
