Juke is quick and easy to install. Place it on a shelf, or mount it in a 19” equipment rack with optional rack ears. Juke is very energy-efficient and produces much less heat than traditional amplifiers. However, you must ensure that nothing is sitting on top of it and that other equipment isn’t causing it to be located in a hot environment. Once Juke is in position, it’s time to connect your speaker wires and get Juke onto your local network
Juke Audio must be connected to your local area network by using either Ethernet or Wi-Fi. This network must be the same one that is used by the devices you use to play your audio.
The preferred way to get Juke on your network is to connect it to your router with an Ethernet cable (which is included with Juke). If Ethernet isn’t available, skip to the next section and learn how to use Wi-Fi instead.
If Juke is within approximately 10 to 15 feet of an access point, you can use its internal Wi-Fi. Otherwise, you need more range, we recommend additional hardware (for information on how to do this please see our technical support page). When using Juke’s internal Wi-Fi, before it’s configured, Juke will appear as an access point called JUKEAUDIO. Go to your devices Wi-Fi setup and select JUKEAUDIO. For example, on an iPhone, this will look like this.
Note that your phone may warn your that the access point has no internet connection. This is normal and you can safely ignore it as you continue with the device setup.
Once your device is connected to JUKEAUDIO, access the Juke homescreen by typing ‘juke.local’ (or ‘10.0.0.5’ for Android users running Android 11 or older) in your preferred browser. Log in as admin with the default password ‘Admin’ and navigate to the NETWORK SETUP screen. You should now see the following.
Choose your Wi-Fi router from the list and enter its password credentials. Note: if Juke does not show your Wi-Fi access point in the list, it probably means that it is out of range.
Enter the password for your Wi-Fi access point, and click Submit.
Then, reconnect your device to your Wi-Fi network. (This will likely happen automatically because Juke stops acting as an access point once it’s on your network.)
Wait a minute, hit refresh in your browser, and you’re done!
If have any issues with your setup please review the ‘Connectivity’ tab of our technical support page.
If you’re having trouble connecting to your Juke using “juke.local”, try the alternative “jukeaudio.local.” If this does not work try connecting directly using the device’s IP address. This can be found by using our device lookup tool to lookup your device on our servers.
If your Juke fails to connect to the new network, it will return to the network it was previously on. If it was not on a network or if that network becomes inaccessible, it will appear again as an access point (JUKEAUDIO).
If you are an Android user running Android 11 or newer, juke.local may not work for you. If that is the case, then you will have to manually enter in the assigned IP address for the device. This information can be found using our our device lookup tool or by using the app Fing on the Google Store.
