I am trying to understand if something is possible before buying the equipment. I am trying to set my parents house up with Sonos across the house and an outbuilding.
House is working great, obviously very easy and pleased how it’s all working.
Now for the outbuilding I was thinking of running an Ethernet from the house Virgin router to an access point (AP) in the garden building. Something like an Archer C6 AC1200, for context this is about 35m away. Reading online this should ‘extend’ my wifi to the garden building. I had previously considered a PowerLine Adapter, but I suspect this will have issues because the outbuilding is on its own Consumer Unit...
I am assuming that if the AP has the same ssid and password, setting up a new Sonos or two would be simple enough, and I’ll be able to see and control them all together?
(Bit of an amateur when it comes to home networks)

The Archer C6 would be fine - you’d just need to put it into Bridge/AP mode. For ease of use, configure the WiFi credentials to be the same as your VM router. You will need to run an ethernet cable over to it though.
Powerline isn’t supported.
