To keep the warranty valid, never try to repair
the system yourself.
If you encounter problems when using this
apparatus, check the following points before

check whether the Ethernet cable has
been connected properly and securely.
•• Check the Wi-Fi network connection.

Check if your Wi-Fi router is Wi-Fi
802.11b/g certified. This device is only
compatible with Wi-Fi 802.11b/g certified
routers.
If your Wi-Fi router is Wi-Fi 802.11n
certified, make sure to enable the
802.11b/g mode. AW9000 does not
support connection to routers with
802.11n only.
This device does not support the WPSPIN method.
Enable SSID broadcast on the Wi-Fi router.
Keep away from potential sources of
interference which may affect Wi-Fi signal,
such as microwave ovens.
Make sure that the SSID name of your
home router consists of alphanumeric
characters, with no space or special
characters like %/#/* inserted.
If you choose to rename your AW9000
manually on the Philips AirStudio app, do
not use special characters or symbols.
For some new types of Wi-Fi routers, a
network name (SSID) may be created
automatically when you use WPS for
connection. Always change the default
network name (SSID) to a simple one that
consists of alphanumerical characters, and
also change the Wi-Fi security mode to
secure your network.
Occasional breaking of music streaming
Do one or all of the following:
•• Move AW9000 closer to your Wi-Fi router.
•• Remove any obstacles between AW9000
and your Wi-Fi router.
•• Avoid using Wi-Fi channel which is
overlapped by the nearby Wi-Fi network.
•• Check if your network speed is fast enough
(in cases where multiple devices share the
same router, the wireless performance may
be affected). Turn off the other devices
connected to your home router.
•• Enable the Quality of Service (QoS)
option (if available on the Wi-Fi router).
•• Turn off other Wi-Fi routers.
Music streaming failed with PC/Mac
•• Temporarily disable the firewall and
security software to see whether it blocks
the ports that the media sharing software
(Media Manager) uses to stream content.
See the help documentation of your
firewall and security software on how to
unblock the ports used by wireless media
sharing.
•• When you use iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad/PC/
Mac for music streaming, if the music play
breaks or stops, try to restart your iPod
Touch/iPhone/iPad, media sharing software,
or AW9000.
•• Video streaming or FTP downloads may
overload your router and therefore may
cause interruptions during music streaming.
Try to reduce the load of your router.
