I have a very large house with in-laws living in a separate annexe. We have one WiFi network covering the whole house and annexe. I have a reliable Sonos networking running in the main house with all my devices connected. I tried setting up a separate Sonos networking using a bridge in the annexe side which has 2 x Play:5 in there. It works for a while, but the next day when you try to connect to the annexe system again it can't find it and instead fines my system in the main house.
Can you run 2 separate Sonos networks in one house so that in my side I can only see and use my devices and in the other side you can only see those?
Thanks for your help!
One house, one WiFi network - can you have 2 seperate Sonos networks running?

Because your controllers know how to connect to both households on your network they'll basically pick the first one to respond. You'd want to pick some controllers that will be for household 1 and some for household 2. Make sure those controllers have been told to forget the other household.
If you don't setup dedicated household controllers, you'll want to have the network divided so that the annex has a separate subnet. The controllers connected there won't link with players on a different subnet from their own.
To split reliably, you should use 802.1q VLANs, so they run on the same physical hardware but separate networks.
At 40 players though, perhaps they should consider another solution? Or a hybrid, where you feed something like a Niles system with a few Sonos Connects.
