When they lose connection, they go to solid orange. Can you check the dip switches on the back of your AL-8 and AR-1 to make sure they match the same pattern? I’ve also tried the Bose Link “in” as well, but the same result. Per Bose wifi or cable modem does not effect the AL8.
Both are on the same “setup” code and I’ve tried different “setup” codes, but no luck. I plug them all in at the same time and they all stay green for 20 seconds. 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 Please, let us know. The transmitter tx and receiver rx for the AL8 aren’t communicating. Out of the box, the AL-8 and AR-1 will default to avoid channel 6 on a 2.
If you look at the back of the AL-8 there is a button labeled “channel”. What would cause them to talk for 20 seconds and then stop? There are two things that are most likely to get us closer to the issue: Now I need find out how I can kill or isolate the 2.
What troubleshooting steps have you taken so far? Cleared the wifi in the house on channel 1 and set up the AL8 so it doesn’t use channel 1. Looking for the answer! I will continue to troubleshoot.
I have tried putting them right next to each other – same xl8. But as soon as the tx goes orange, the rx starts to blink green and search. If the LED does not blink in response to each button press, the issue is the remote. When they lose connection, do you get a solid or blinking orange LED? You may need to send a signal through to get them to recognize each bbose. 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.
Is it certain that there actually is a connection in the first 20 seconds, just because the lights turn green? I’ve unplugged the router and still get the same result. Unfortunately i can not move the wifi or the AL8. Do you have any suggestions on obse that broadcast?
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’m having the same problem.

Should they connect to each other even without Bose Link to a Lifestyle console or an expansion set? However, no signals from my remote ever seemed to arrive at the AL-8, even in the 20 seconds before the connection broke down.
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. Below is the list in order on what channels will be avoided based on each 3-second button push. Both near to be in the same area due to drops. Cable is connected to the input jack on the tx and Bose Link “out” on the back of the Lifestyle V I just noticed your post.
In that twenty second window while the lights are still green, let’s test the expansion remote and ensure that the control console is responding to it.
The LED should turn off whenever a button on the remote is pressed.
