Setting Up Roam SL while travelling

Hi guys,

I bought a Roam SL early into my trip here in NYC. I have one back in Australia and know that I need to do the initial setup through WiFi so that I can then use it as a bluetooth speaker for the rest of the journey. I have tried using the hotel WiFi to get it working, but no joy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

You need a wifi that doesn’t have a log in page. Which might be challenging while you’re traveling. Maybe a friend’s house? 

Or (silly me) a travel router would work. I used one on a trip to Thailand. Set up the travel router to connect to the hotel’s signal and log in using the name/room password thing. Then I used the travel router to set up my same network SSID and password from home, so that my Sonos would “just work”. Slightly different for setting up a Roam, but at least you then have a network to log in to that doesn’t require a login page.

You could also set up the Roam using two phones. Use one for it's wifi and the other for setting up the Roam. You might need to reset the Roam on coming home (two households) but at least you can use it with bluetooth while you are on the road.
