Optimizing your router

How do I optimnize my router ahead of time?

Most modern routers are already set up to work really well with streaming products like Polk Omni, but even with current routers, there are some things you can check to make sure you get the best possible Polk Omni experience before setting up your speakers: 

1. Select the best Wi-Fi channel for your network.

2. Enable Quality of Service (QoS) features like Wireless Multimedia Extensions (WMM).

3. If using advanced DHCP assignments or port-forwarding, allow exceptions for Polk Omni.

4. Double-check to be sure your router is assigning network access and that UPnP and DHCP are enabled.

Use of these configuration features will be covered by your router’s manual or in online support tools, or you can always get in touch with Customer Support at 800-377-7655 for help.
