I currently have a number of Sonos speakers connected to my home network, they connect to a mesh network (although appears the always connect to the same mesh node but that’s probably by the by).
I’m hoping to use these speakers in a temporary locations where I might not be able to use the WiFi or it will be too slow to stream music effectively. Let’s consider plan a I can connect to the WiFi and plan b is I cannot connect to the WiFi.
Plan A - I think this relatively simple and I just set these up as a having moved to a new network, I probably won’t be able to connect to Ethernet but is it still possible? It is a large building with multiple access point and not sure of the exact setup but the login does not require a landing page, just a password and ssid.
Plan B (which might be more likely to be needed) - can I create an offline setup where I move the speakers and my home mesh network and while I won’t be able to connect to the internet, would it be possible to AirPlay an offline playlist this way? I assume I could probably test this out at home by just unplugging my internet router while leaving the mesh network running.
