Hi guys,

 

Have any of you got problems with connecting to the Essence ?

I have had 2 Playmakers, and now 2 Essence systems.

All of them suddenly the wifi stops working, I can only get it to work wired (LAN).

So maybe the wifi is burned off, and why does that happen ?

B&O says that unfortuneatly there is no more warranty, and to repair the Essence is not worth it.

But I can buy the new CORE, they said, it´s a great piece of an equipment.

NOW F**KING WAY ! ... Im not gonna buy the fifth system in 5 years.

 

The problem with the Essence is that it can only flash green on the back, and I have been resetting it many many times, and nothing happens.

Can it really be real, that the only thing I can do is to throw it in the garbage ?

Is it possible to buy the wifi part as a replacement, and chance it my self ?

Is there maybe a non-beo-brand, with a smart and CHEAP device (with trigger) to connect directly to my Beolab 2 ? 

I hope someone can help me.... I really need music in my life ! (-:

 

Kindest Regards,

Kenneth

I'm with MM on this one.  It sounds like it has lost / forgotten it's wifi configuration, and needs to be reconfigured.

If the app is not recognizing the Essence, I wonder if you can still talk to it via web?  Wasn't there an HTTP URL one could use to talk to the Essence?  Or am I getting it confused with the NL/ML converter.

If you can't get wifi to work, then it would seem like the power line ethernet (turns your electrical wires into ethernet cables) would be an option (as suggested above) or, worse case (but probably cheaper than buying Cores) would be use a wifi extender with an ethernet port - I had my Essence connected to an airport express like this for a while when it was having wifi problems - it's wifi problems disappeared when I upgraded my wifi).
