Are you using a power center or surge protection strip?

If so, your Bose may be plugged in too close to a router or other wireless device.

If so, power down all components then move the Bose plug as far away from the router or other wireless device as possible.

Power everything back up and try pairing again.
If that didn't work, try moving the Bose plug directly to a wall outlet and try pairing again.
