* Let's say there are 4 Sonos Connects on WIFI connected to a wireless router
* The wireless router creates a WIFI e.g. SSID "homenetwork" with password "xyz123"
* In this case, all the Sonos Connects are hooked on 2.4GHz on "homenetwork" as Sonos Connects does not operate on 5GHz but only on 2.4GHz
* The wireless router provides IP addresses to all Sonos Connects
* Any Sonos apps (on mobile phone) can control the Sonos Connect units as long as the mobile phone is on the "homenetwork"
1) Are my assumpitons above correct?
NOW WHEN ADDING A SONOS BOOST
* If I add Sonos Boost (with help of the mobile app "Add Boost or Bridge" in the settings menu)
* Connect the Sonos Boost with Ethernet cable to my wireless router (that provides the "homenetwork" on the air)
QUESTIONS ADTER ADDING SONOS BOOST
2) Does the Snos Boost create a new WIFI Network on the air for Sonos Products only?
3) Is that new Network discoverable by other devices?
4) Does the Sonos boost allow any other devices connect to that new Network or is only for Sonos products
5) If the Sonos Boost creates a new Network what is that SSID and password - or are those hidden from the other users/clients?
6) Is there a way to configure the "sonos specific" WIFI characteristics line on which WIFI channel it is (1-11)?
7) Is it true that if I check the "information of my Sonos system" all devices that says WM0 are hooked to the Sonos specific Network?
😎 If I remove the Boost from the system (or it goes down) the Sonos Connects then start looking for a new Network and in case of non-existence of the "Boost WiFI" they in the end goes back to the original WIFI Network ("homenetwork")
