I've been having certain issues with my Sonos system for a while. Random disconnects, speakers not displaying in the app, unable to play songs/add songs to a queue from my phone whilst i'm moving around the house. My existing set up is a Virgin Media Super Hub 3, in router mode and WiFi disabled, connected to the main BT Mesh Node. There are 2 other secondary BT mesh nodes in other rooms in the house. My sonos speakers (Playbar + Play 1 surrounds, Play 3, and Play 5 Gen 1) all connect wirelessly.
As such, i'm thinking about transitioning over to SonosNet to see if it can help sort the issues i face.
Unfortunately, the router/primary mesh node is located in a place where it makes no sense to have a speaker. As such, i'm wondering whether anyone has successfully tried connecting a Sonos speaker to a secondary wifi node via ethernet, and whether that successfully creates the SonosNet Mesh and allows for a useable system. One of my secondary nodes is located next to my Play 5, so if that was a workable setup, it would be preferable to needing to buy a Boost and connect that to the router.
If the Boost were the most sensible suggestion, however, would i need to wire it to the Virgin Router, or Primary mesh node attached to the router?
