Tip
For some Wi-Fi routers, you may need to hold the
WPS button for Wi-Fi connection or enable the WPS
PBC function from the router configuration pages. See
the user manuals of the specific routers for details.
If the Wi-Fi SETUP indicator on DS6800W blinks
yellow, it means that the Wi-Fi connection has failed.
Please wait for 2 minutes and try again. If the problem
remains, try to set up the Wi-Fi connection manually
(see 'Scenario 2: Connect to a non-WPS router' on
page 14).
If the Wi-Fi connection fails again, press and hold both
the + and - buttons on the main speaker to reset it, and
then try again.

To connect DS6800W to a Wi-Fi router
manually, you need access to DS6800W's
built-in configuration web page for change of
its internal Wi-Fi settings. To do so, you need a
Wi-Fi enabled device with an Internet browser
for temporary Wi-Fi connection to DS6800W.
The Wi-Fi enabled device can be an iPod touch/
iPhone/iPad or a Wi-Fi enabled PC/Mac.
Follow the sequence below for connection of
DS6800W to a non-WPS wi-Fi router.

Collect settings of your home Wi-Fi router
and write down on paper for use during
DS6800W Wi-Fi setup (see 'Collect
settings of your home Wi-Fi router' on
page 15).
2
Switch DS6800W to Assisted Wi-Fi Setup
mode (see 'Switch DS6800W to Assisted
Wi-Fi Setup mode' on page 15).
»
A new Wi-Fi network created by
DS6800W will appear, with the
network name (SSID) of Philips Fidelio
AirPlay.
3
Connect your Wi-Fi enabled device to the
created new Wi-Fi network temporarily
(see 'Connect your Wi-Fi enabled device to
the newly created Wi-Fi network' on page

with the Internet Browser of your Wi-Fi
enabled device (see 'Open the built-in web

DS6800W based on the settings you
wrote on paper at step 1 (see 'Change the

Setup mode
After successful boot-up, press and hold
Wi-Fi SETUP on the back of the main
speaker for more than 5 seconds.

(SSID) of Philips Fidelio AirPlay.
»
It takes about 45 seconds for successful
creation of this new Wi-Fi network.
Note
After you finishes manual Wi-Fi setting for DS6800W,
this new Wi-Fi network disappears.
If you fail to enter Assisted Wi-Fi Setup mode, power
off DS6800W and power on it again, then try again
after successful boot-up.
Make sure that there are no other Philips AirPlay-
enabled devices in Assisted Wi-Fi Setup mode at the
same time. Multiple new Wi-Fi networks created this
way may interfere with each other.
Connect your Wi-Fi enabled device to
the newly created Wi-Fi network
The new Wi-Fi network created by DS6800W
only allows access of one Wi-Fi enabled device.
To avoid interference from any other Wi-Fi
devices, you are recommended to temporarily
disable the Wi-Fi function on your other Wi-Fi
