There are several steps that can help prod this along:
1) First try resetting the Wifi hardware. That's done by holding the reset button next to the Ethernet socket on the back of the Anthem for about 30 seconds. Afterwards the blink pattern of the light back there should change as described in the PlayFi app.
2) If that doesn't do it, then do a full restart of the Anthem. Power off, unplug wall power, press the power button on the front panel a few times to drain residual power. Then plug back in and power up normally. Try the PlayFi app setup again.
3) If THAT doesn't do it, then you may need to reset the Anthem completely. This will require re-entering your personal setup choices afterwards. To do this, press and hold both Select and Power on the front panel for a few seconds. Note that your firmware will still be whatever you last installed, so you won't need to redo the firmware update -- just your Setup menu settings.
Sometimes after doing (2) or (3) it also helps to redo (1) before using the PlayFi app.
Keep in mind that Wifi is disabled on the Anthem while you have Ethernet plugged in. So unplug the Ethernet cable before trying to use the Wifi.
Finally note that the Wifi hardware and associated firmware can be very slow to wake up after powering up the Anthem. Wait about a minute after you power up the Anthem before you try doing the PlayFi app setup.
