Given a Sonos network with 8 players.
One player is wired to the router, as far as my understanding is right, my Sonos configuration is a SonosNet mesh network. I see WM:0 at each player. (All the seven other players are wireless)
What happens if I turn off the Wifi (using the app) for the one player that is wired (my sonosnet coordinator)? Will turning off the wifi causing problems? Because this one wired player is communicating over wireless to the other 7 player within the Sonos MeshNet?
Thank you in advance!

Thank you for your respones!
One more thing; could you explain the term wireless radio? I assume this is what is needed for Sonos MeshNet wireless connection?
Does that mean, even with wifi (alias wireless radio) toggled off, the speaker could still be connected over my regular LAN wifi to my router in a WM: 1 configuration?
Thank you again.
As said, wireless radio is a generic term, WiFi (in many variations) and Sonos Net (v1 or v2) are two of many specific connection specifications. Making it even more complicated Sonos only uses the WiFi B/G varieties.
No, if your radio is turned off then the Sonos will have no radio communication, be it WiFi or Sonos Net flavor. That includes the essential 5 GHz link for the Sub or surrounds. All you can do at that point is hook it to Ethernet and be put in WM: 0 mode for basic use and with no Sub Surround link.
