Before you begin
Dear Acoustic Research customer,
Thank you for purchasing the AR Wi-Fi Internet Radio. This product will let you listen to Internet Radio,
AM/FM tuner, weather forecast and music stored in the internal memory or a USB device.
To start using your Wi-Fi Internet Radio, please follow the setup instructions in the following pages.
1. Unpack the unit
You should find the following items in the box:
Power adapter
Radio
User Manual
Quick Start
Guide
Ethernet cable
AM loop antenna
Setup
Information
Card
For ARIRC205 only:
Wi-Fi Enabler
Power adapter
Additional requirements
• Broadband Internet service
• Broadband (cable/DSL) modem, usually supplied by your Internet service provider
• An 802.11 b or g (Wi-Fi) wireless home network or Ethernet router/switch/hub with available LAN
port (for ARIRC200 only)
For Wi-Fi connections, you may also need:
• Your wireless network’s SSID
• Your access password (for secure networks)
8
Before you begin
2. Setup your AR Infinite Radio accounts
To simplify setup on the radio please complete these steps:
A. Find the Setup Information Card that contains your radio’s MAC address number (MAC: 00-00-0000-00-00) and activation PIN # (PIN: 0000). (This number is also found in the Device Info screen
under the Settings menu in your radio.)
B. Using any Internet-connected computer, go to www.arinfiniteradio.com/setup and follow the
online instructions.
• You will need to input your radio’s MAC address and PIN # to associate your radio with your
personal settings.
3. Optional: Insert AAA batteries in the base of the radio
Follow the polarity markers in the battery compartment. The batteries power the clock and alarm*
whenever the radio loses electricity. We recommend that you replace the batteries every year (or
more often in case of multiple power outages) to avoid low battery power. Otherwise, clock and
alarm accuracy may be affected when electricity supply is interrupted.
* When the battery backup functions, the clock display will not light. However, the function of alarm still occurs during the power
interruption if remaining battery power is adequate.
4. For ARIRC205 only: Connect the AR Wi-Fi Enabler to your network
If your modem or router/hub/switch has only one LAN
port and is connected to your PC, disconnect the
Ethernet cable from the modem/router/hub/switch and
connect it to the Enabler's LAN port.

your wireless networks password (sometimes
called passphrase or key). You can find this
information on your broadband modem,
router or access point’s administration setup
page or manual. You may also call your
Internet Service Provider (ISP) if you do not
know how to access the administration page
in order to find this information. They usually
have a 1-800 number available. Once you have
the below information you may write it down
for future reference.
If you are using AR Wi-Fi Enabler
(ARIRC205), setup is done (except you may
need to enter your postal code).

About password:
• Do not get your Network Password
confused with your Windows or Mac
system logon password since they can be
different.
• Some wireless access point or routers
may call the Wireless Network Password
a passphrase or key. These terms are the
same.
About passphrase:
• This radio supports secured access points
using the Wireless Equivalent Privacy
(WEP) keys or Wi-Fi Protected Access
(WPA and WPA2) standards.
• WEP keys are either 10 or 26 characters
long (characters: 0-9 and A-F) (e.g.
6E78214A52). Note that some Wi-Fi
routers support passphrase generation
for WEP security. However, there is no
industry standard for WEP passphrase
generation and this radio does not
support WEP passphrases.
• If you are using a WEP secured access
point, enter the WEP key (HEX format)
instead of the passphrase.
Signal strength is indicated by .
Secured network is indicated by
(unsecured network has none, as Network 1
in the above example).
If a secured network is selected, you will be
required to enter your password in the
Network Security screen. The radio should
then connect to the Internet. Please wait until
you hear a short congratulations message

Before you begin
To turn on the Wi-Fi Enabler:
The Enabler will turn on automatically when
power is connected.
To check the AR Wi-Fi Enabler's status by
reading the LEDs (Lights):
• Normally the POWER, WAN and WIRELESS
LEDs will be on when the enabler is operating
as a router.
• The LAN LED will be on if there is an Ethernet
cable connected from the LAN port on the
Enabler to a computer.
• The MODE LED will be off when the Enabler is
operating as a Router.
• The MODE LED will be on when the Enabler is
operating as an (AP) Access Point.
To rescan the network configuration:
• Your Wi-Fi Enabler comes preconfigured from
the factory so normally no rescan should be
necessary.
• Press and hold the WPS key for 3 seconds.
The MODE LED then starts blinking. This will
indicate to the user that the unit is scanning
the network to determine the correct mode
for the new environment (i.e. either router or
AP).
• If during a scanning, the unit cannot
determine the mode or needs more
information (i.e. no response from the WAN
connection, PPPOE, fixed IP address
connection, etc) the unit will start flashing the
MODE, WPS and WIRELESS LEDs.
To reset the Enabler:
• If you are unable to connect the radio to the
Wi-Fi enabler, press and hold the RESET for
10 seconds to reset the Wi-Fi enable back to
factory defaults. After resetting the Wi-Fi
enabler, try connecting again.

Placement of Wi-Fi Enabler
The placement of the AR Wi-Fi Enabler and also
interference can affect the radio and Wi-Fi
Enablers operation; therefore choose placement
wisely and try to reduce interference in the
beginning will ensure a pleasant experience.
To choose Wi-Fi Enabler placement:
For best results, place your AR Wi-Fi Enabler:
• Near the center of the area in which your
computer and radio will operate.
• In an elevated location such as a high shelf
where the wirelessly connected radio have
line-of-sight access (even if through walls).
• Avoid obstacles to wireless signals.
• Keep wireless devices at least 2 feet (0.6m)
from large metal fixtures such as file cabinets,
refrigerators, pipes, metal ceilings, reinforced
concrete, and metal partitions.
• Keep wireless devices away from large
amounts of water such as fish tanks and
water coolers.
To reduce interference:
• Avoid windows unless communicating
between buildings.
• Place wireless devices away from various
electromagnetic noise sources, especially
those in the 2400 – 2500 MHZ frequency
band. Common noise-creating sources are:
– 2.4 and 2.5GHz cordless phones, computers,
other wireless routers, access points and fax
machines (no closer than 1 foot (0.3m)).
– Copying machines, elevators, and cell phones
(no closer than 6 feet (1.8m)).
– Microwave ovens (no closer than 10 feet
(3m)).

MAC or NTFS are not supported.
•
The LED of ON/STANDBY button is flashing.
• The LED is flashing (5-second interval) when
the unit is being powered by the backup
batteries due to electricity supply
interruption. Please check your AC power
supply.
• If the LED is flashing even faster (3-second
interval), this means that the unit is being
powered by weak backup batteries. Please
replace the backup batteries (refer to page
9). We recommend that you replace the
batteries every year (or more often in case of
multiple power outages) to avoid low battery
power. Otherwise, clock and alarm accuracy
may be affected when electricity supply is
interrupted.
Cannot stop the demonstration mode.
• To exit the demonstration, press and release
in sequence the buttons on top of the radio:
preset 1, then SLEEP/SNOOZE, then preset

The AR Wi-Fi Enabler adds Wi-Fi capability to
your existing network. Page 9, step 4 shows
you how to connect the AR Wi-Fi Enabler to
your network.
Your Wi-Fi Enabler comes preconfigured from

be necessary. This information is provided for
the more advanced users or for
troubleshooting purposes.
If you encounter problems connecting the
radio to the Internet via AR Wi-Fi Enabler, the
settings on the radio may not match the
settings on the Enabler. Follow the steps
below to configure the settings again.
To find the configuration information of the
Wi-Fi Enabler:
• Find the Wi-Fi Enabler’s factory configuration
information on the white label on the back of
the AR Infinite Radio. This label includes: 1)
the Wireless Network’s name (SSID), 2) the
Security Type, and 3) the password/key.

radio. Press to highlight Settings and then
press SELECT.
