I carried my HomePod with me to a hotel in Santiago, Chile. Since the HomePod must be on the same network as the source, it might be necessary to ascertain the MAC address of the HomePod and manually add it to the hotel wifi network. There was another way, which I used. Connect my MacBook Pro to the ethernet for the hotel network. Next, share the ethernet connection from the MacBook Pro to WiFi in the immediate area. Connect my iPhone to the WiFi connection from the MacBook Pro, rather than the hotel WiFi. After resetting the HomePod, it is easy to set it up using the iPhone. This allows the HomePod to also use the MacBook Pro WiFi connection. and the HomePod performs as expected.
