Connecting Your Speakers

  • I am unable to connect to my speaker.

    If you're having problems connecting your speaker, first try resetting it. If that doesn't work, you may need to reset your WPS connection on your wireless router.

    Press the WPS Button on your wireless router. Then, within two minutes, press the WiFi button on the back of the JAM WiFi Speaker.

    Once the speaker connects, the speaker will say, "WiFi connected."

  • My speakers were previously connected, but now they cannot be found.

    Make sure your speakers are on. If no light (no matter what color): please check to see if the speaker is plugged in. If showing a solid red light: your speaker is disconnected from your WiFi network and needs to be reconnected. If showing a solid blue light: your speaker is connected to a WiFi network; please proceed to step 2. Make sure your mobile device is connected to your home network. If you've recently moved or installed a new router, simply reconnect the speakers to your new router by following the step-by-step process in the app. After confirming that your mobile device is connected to your home WiFi network, open the JAM WiFi App. If your speakers still cannot be found, please continue to the next steps. Did you recently move or install a new router in your home? If you’ve recently moved or installed a new router, simply reconnect the speakers to your new router by following the step-by-step process in the app. If all else fails, reset and reconnect the speaker. You will need a pin to press the reset button at the back of the speaker. Press and hold until you hear the audible response, “Resetting back to factory settings.” It will take the speaker some time to reinitiate, so please wait until the LED shows solid red before attempting to connect to it.

  • How to group speakers and separate right and left stereo channels.

    Grouping is linking two or more speakers together so that they play the same music. Grouped speakers share the same "Now Playing" screen, but have separate volume levels. To group two speakers together:

    On the "Speaker Screen," press and hold one of the speakers that you wish to group. Drag it to the other speaker you wish to group and release. When you want to add additional speakers into an existing group, simply press and hold the single speaker that is not in the group, then drag it into the already-established group and release. When two speakers are grouped together, you can separate right and left channels. There is a button that toggles between stereo, left, or right channels. Cycle through the choices to make your desired selection.

  • Can I connect my speakers to my computer?

    The speakers are not designed to pair with computers using DLNA.

  • Can I use the speakers with my TV?

    Yes, through the aux-in at the back of the speaker. If you would like to connect wirelessly, you can only do so if your TV supports a DLNA connection.

  • Can I use the speakers as a home entertainment system?

    No, they are not designed to be used this way.

  • I cannot connect my JAM WiFi Speaker at work.

    WiFi networks in a working environment can be complex and full of barriers, which will cause issues with connecting and streaming. Our speaker is designed for home use, and therefore we don’t recommend setting up your JAM WiFi speaker in the office.

    Check the WiFi signal strength of the speaker, if the signal strength is weak, try relocating the speaker closer to the wireless router to improve signal strength. Wireless Network Bandwidth Restraint

    The Master Speaker is the speaker you drag the other speakers into in order to pair multiple speakers. You know it’s the Master Speaker if all the other speakers continue playing the same music the Master Speaker was playing before you grouped your speakers.
