I currently have a Sonos system covering five rooms plus a Port. All are connected using my Mesh wifi system based on a Fritz router and Fritz Mesh extenders. The system works reasonably well apart from synchronisation of rooms which will randomly drop out (either all or one of the rooms dropping).
In our previous bigger house most rooms were wired leaving a few outlying rooms using Sonosnet; this arrangement was far more reliable. Unfortunately running cables in our new house would be highly disruptive and domestically unacceptable.
So having viewed various of the postings in these forums I have decided to purchase a Boost, which is the only thing that can be conveniently wired to my router, and move to a Sonosnet system.
I am looking for guidance on how to do this. Specifically I am thinking of wiring one of my more portable speakers to the router and having powered off the other rooms I would, once the wired unit was up and running, power the other units up and hope they pick up the Sonosnet network. I could delete the wifi details from the Sonos system, but I do have a Roam which will of course require that I re-input the wifi details at some point. Once my Boost arrives I would then add that to the system and once it is part of the system I would wire it to the router and move the previously wired device back to its correct location.
Any thoughts please on whether this sounds reasonable or if an easier approach is available?
