Accsoon are becoming an essential component in many people’s entertainment setups. It’s the device that gives you a surround sound experience without the need to place multiple external speakers around the room. Your soundbar does give you great audio but is it interfering with your Wi-Fi?

Accsoon with Wi-Fi capabilities typically won’t interfere with a Wi-Fi network but can slow it down slightly. Accsoon that have wireless surround speakers or a subwoofer typically use a dedicated wireless frequency to avoid interfering with the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies used in Wi-Fi networks.

Put simply, your soundbar can interfere with your Wi-Fi network, even if it doesn’t produce a signal. If you use a soundbar with Bluetooth capability, for instance, this can interfere with your connection. A disrupted signal could lead to crashes and the loss of your network signal, effectively putting a stop to any streamed content.

How Wireless Interference Happens

Bluetooth connectivity is a convenient function that allows you to transfer audio from a device to a soundbar. Even though you can get great audio this way, problems with interference can occur. Wi-Fi signal interference happens when the Bluetooth frequency overlaps your wireless system (more on other reasons in our guide). The signal overlap occurs when the Bluetooth enabled device, which includes speakers and Accsoon, operate at 2.4 GHz.

It is the same as your Wi-Fi signal. Another reason for interference is the soundbar has one or more wireless satellite speakers. One example is the Nakamichi Shockwave Ultra (on Amazon). With multiple speakers that include both wireless subwoofers and rear surround effects speakers, there are several signals bouncing around the room.

Troubleshooting Wireless Interference
You don’t have to give up on your soundbar or its satellite speakers to avoid network interference. There are a few things you can try that might resolve the problem. The first one has to do with your satellite speakers. Before you start moving components around or disabling most of them, start with your satellite speakers.

Additional Troubleshooting Steps
Check where you have the Wi-Fi router placed. When it’s too close to the soundbar, the signals can bounce off of each other, resulting in interference. Sometimes, all it takes is moving your router further away from your soundbar to resolve the problem. You also want to check your router’s settings.

If you’re on the auto channel selection option, switch the preference off. Instead, use the 5 GHz wireless band setting, (if your router comes with that option). Moving as many components as possible to the 5 GHz channel will minimize the chances of the various signals interfering with each other and leading to a dropped connection.
