Hi, I’m new to the Sonos ecosystem
1 x playbar
2 x sonos one’s (with akexa)
So far I’m loving the compatibility but I’m unsure how AirPlay works when my speakers are connected to the dedicated 2.4ghz network and my phone is connected to the 5ghz network? Both networks are completely independent [xxx(2.4) & xxx(5)] so they are distinguishable. Whilst this is the case I’m still able to AirPlay without an issue. So I’m wondering how my phone is picking up the speakers to AirPlay when they are on two completely different networks?
it goes against my understanding of wifi networks and internet security?
Hence my question.

Yes, a guest SSID is on a different IP subnet (‘network’). Visitors won’t be able to see anything on your main network. Moreover visitors usually won’t even be able to see one another (which is why Sonos can’t work on a guest network).
