Advanced: Optimizing your router configuration for Play-Fi ahead of time.
Created: Dec 07 2015 | Updated: Mar 20 2018
Most modern routers are already set up to work really well with streaming products like Play-Fi, but even with current routers, there are some things you can check to make sure you get the best possible Play-Fi experience before setting up your speakers.
Select the best Wi-Fi channel for your network.
Enable Quality of Service (QoS) features like Wireless Multimedia Extensions (WMM)
If using advanced DHCP assignments or port-forwarding , allow exceptions for Play-Fi
Double-check to be sure your router is assigning network access and that UPnP and DHCP are enabled.
Use of these configuration features will be covered by your router’s manual or in online support tools.
