    My problem is that Bose soundtouch does not work on different radios and ssids. Even though they are on the same subnet. I´ve alot of settings and setups but nothing seems to be working. Until yesterday I tried ASUS Original firmware then it worked. But I do NOT want to use that horrible webGUI :p
    The Device is streaming fine but when you want to control radio station/stream spotify it can´t be contacted via Bose soundtouch app if its not on exatly the same SSID.

    The Bose player is an "Soundtouch 10" Wifi only.

    My setup is:

    Main router Asus RT-N66U with 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
    Latest Shibby firmware. tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-138-VPN-64K
    Tried older also.

    Same SSID on both radios.
    WPA2 AES
    Mixed mode
    Bridge br0

    And an Linksys WRT54GL in the garage with DHCP & firewall off. CAT6 to ASUS router lan port.
    Acting like an AP with exactly same SSID, encryption, pass as main router but channel 6 20MHz.

    I can only control Bose when I´m on the same radio interface and SSID as the bose.
    Bose support did recommend me to use this generic settings:

    · UPnP - Activated
    · Multicast - Activated
    · IGMP - Activated
    · Wireless Isolation - Disabled
    · IGMP Proxy - Disabled
    · Wi-Fi Radio or Radio Mode - Mixed or B/G/N
    · Stealth mode - Disabled
    · MAC Filtering/Access Control - Disabled
    · WPS - Disabled

    Any ideas? Actually I have similar issues at an customer that we sold Pakedge Accesspoints to. Theyre expensive and great performing products. But some sort of service does not forwards between SSID/Radios on Soundtouch devices.

    Sorry for bad english :(

    Shot in the dark, but could it be because the Bose soundtouch uses the default class C subnet of as does your Router?

    Can you change your Bose to use a static IP address that is not being used for your LAN to test? If you are using Bluetooth try setting Bluetooth co-existence in your Advanced Wireless settings for interference mitigation.

    I've no idea what settings are best to ensure ZeroConf / Bonjour functionality, but there's two settings you can play with:

    1. Advanced / Wireless
    Wireless Multicast Forwarding

    2. Advanced / Routing
    Efficient Multicast Forwarding
