    Only works with slow WiFi networks

    • Written by from London

    I had problems connecting this to my WiFi network and after a long telephone conversation with Bose customer support I was finally told that the speaker does not work with 802.11n networks (which is what Virgin Media fibre optic provides). This is staggering information as the 802.11n standard is now well over two years old, while Apple's AirPlay system is less than two years old. What on earth is Bose doing selling a speaker that cannot cope with the most modern WiFi standard? Bose support's only proposed solution was to downgrade the speed of my wireless network to 802.11g. So in order to be able to use the SoundLink Air speaker I have to downgrade the performance of the entire network? Crazy! The speaker was returned.
