3. Enable SSID broadcast on the Wi-Fi router and use a WPA or WPA2 key for security. Do
not use any WEP key for security.
4. Keep away from potential sources of interference which may affect Wi-Fi signal, such
as microwave ovens.
5. Make sure that the SSID name of your home router consists of normal characters or
digits, with no space or special characters like %/#/* inserted.
If you choose to rename the AirPlay device ‘iHome iW1 XXXX’ in
the setting menu, do not use special characters or symbols.
