Modified on Sun, 07 May 2023 at 12:33 AM

Connecting your player to the internet via Wifi? Everything you need is here.


In order to connect your Ambie Player to your Wifi network, you will need the following:

  1. Any device that can connect to a wireless internet, for example a laptop/tablet/smartphone
  2. Google Chrome installed on the above device
  3. You will need to know the name of the wireless network you want the Ambie Player to connect to
  4. You will need to know the password for the wireless network you want the Ambie Player to connect to


IMPORTANT i: The Ambie Player can only connect to a secure wireless network that's password-protected. The Ambie Player cannot connect to a network that requires registration, for example the submission of an email address/DoB/voucher code etc.


IMPORTANT ii: Once your Ambie Player is connected to a wireless network, it can be very difficult to connect it to a different network. Please make sure the network you connect the Ambie Player to is the network you intend on using to run Ambie in the long term


If you're unsure on any of the above, please do not proceed with setup, and contact us at support@ambie.fm instead.


Step 1:

Ensure your Ambie Player is connected to a power source. To do this, please use the power supply provided in your Ambie package. Plug the micro-USB end into the Ambie Player, and plug the other end into an electricity socket.


Do not connect an Ethernet cable into the player.


Step 2:

Wait around 30 seconds from connecting your player to the power socket, then search for available wireless networks on the device you're using to set up the player on Wifi (laptop/tablet/smartphone).


You will see a network called "Ambie-Bridge-11XXX"


Connect to this network using the DEVICE CODE from your Ambie Player. The DEVICE CODE is an eight letter code. You can find this on the white sticker on the underside of your Ambie Player.


Step 3:

Once you've successfully connected your laptop/computer/smartphone to the Ambie-Bridge-11XXX network, open Google Chrome.


In the address bar of your browser, type in 172.24.1.1, then press ENTER.


Step 4: 

You should now have reached a page that looks like this:



Please proceed through the set up instructions on your screen.


This will include submitting your DEVICE CODE once more, before selecting the wireless network you want the Ambie Player to connect to, and then submitting the password for that network.


Please ensure you check that the password is correct before connecting.


If you experience difficulty, then please email us at support@ambie.fm
