This used to work, but now it doesn’t. Believe the problem is with the Bose Link AL8, but listed the other equipment in the title for completeness.

The transmitter tx and receiver rx for the AL8 aren’t communicating. Both are on the same “setup” code and I’ve tried different “setup” codes, but no luck. Cable is connected to the input jack on the tx and Bose Link “out” on the back of the Lifestyle V I’ve also tried the Bose Link “in” as well, but the same result. I believe that both the tx and rx are talking as when powered on, they stay green for 20 seconds. But as soon as the tx goes orange, the rx starts to blink green and search.

Cleared the wifi in the house on channel 1 and set up the AL8 so it doesn’t use channel 1. I have done all that I know how to do and am a dead end Thank you for giving a detailed explanation of your setup and troubleshooting steps taken.

There are two things that are most likely to get us closer to the issue:. Let’s unplug your router altogether at a time when noone in the household is using the internet and see if they connect.

If they do, the issue is wireless interference and we’ll want to look at relocating the manhal until they work with the router on. In that twenty second window while the lights are still green, let’s amnual the expansion remote and ensure that the control console is responding to it.

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. The LED should turn off nose a button on the remote is pressed. If the LED does not blink in response to each button press, the issue is the remote. I’ve unplugged the router and still get the same result.


I have 2 receivers and one transmitter I plug them all bosd at the same amnual and they all stay green for 20 seconds. Then after 20 seconds at the same time, the transmitter turns solid orange while the 2 receivers start to blink green.

So they are talking it would seem But then, for unknown reasons What would cause them to talk for 20 seconds and then stop?

I just noticed your post. I’m having the same problem.

I’ve had my System 38 for 12yrs plus with 3 Bose link AL8. Only 1 AL8 gives me this exact problem.


I’ve been troubleshooting it for months with Bose and no solid solution. Per Bose wifi or cable modem does not effect the AL8. I will continue to troubleshoot. Looking for the answer! I’m sorry to hear that. What troubleshooting steps have you taken so far? Curiously, have you tried the steps that have been outlined in the thread already?

The AL8 and AR1s were engineered to operate on 2. The best way to rule that out is to unplug any devices in question and re-test. Please, let us know. Thanks for the tip. Now I need find out how I can kill or isolate the 2. Unfortunately i can not move the wifi or the AL8. Both near to be in the same area due to drops.

I have the same problem. I plug in the AL1 AL8 and they go solid green after a few seconds, but they lose connection mxnual after about 20 seconds. I have tried putting them right next to each other – same result.

I also noticed that I get the same result if I have no Bose Link cables attached.

Should they connect to each other even without Bose Link to manuxl Lifestyle console or an expansion set? If not, the problem may be the Bose Link instead of the wireless connection. Out of the box, the AL-8 and AR-1 will default to avoid channel 6 on a 2.

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. These days most routers are set to channel hop or auto-detect so you’d need to log into your router and maanual the channel setting itself to 6 so it stays there. If you look at the back of the AL-8 there is a button labeled “channel”. 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.


Below is the list bosw order on what channels will be avoided based on each 3-second button push. 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 Can you check the dip switches on the back of your AL-8 and AR-1 to make sure they match the same pattern? When they lose connection, do you get a solid or blinking orange LED? Do you currently have these connected to a media center or not?

You may need to send a signal through to get them to recognize each other. Thank you for your reply. 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.

Yes, the dip switches match. When they lose connection, they manial to solid orange. However, no signals from my remote bkse seemed to arrive at the AL-8, even in the 20 seconds before the mannual broke down. Is it certain that there actually is a connection in the first 20 seconds, just because the lights turn green?
