I have a shared Wi-Fi (where you log in with through an log in splash screen on the browser, not typing in a password) and wired only LAN. I can't use the the Wi-FI, because it's shared and I don't want anyone to be able to control the Sonos and I can't make the Sonos log on the Wi-Fi because of the browser login function).
So I have to use the wired LAN, but I need WiFi to control the Sonos from my phone.
In threads where people are asking for password protection for their Sonos, they are suggested to use a travel router, so they have their own wi-fi.
Can I use the travel router solution for this and plug it to the wired LAN? Or can travel routers only attach them selves to a Wifi? If so would a "normal" router that can make its own wifi work? (it's first time I hear the term travel router, so I actually don't if a travel router just is a "normal" router but smaller".
Bonus info: In my situation I have to use a Sonos Boost (I have 16 SONOS:1s) and that have to be wired to the (travel) router that makes the Wi-Fi.
Can anyone answer this?

Many routers will detect that their WAN connection is onto a private network and adopt a suitable network prefix for their own LAN. If not you'll need to specify a network prefix which differs from the outer network. For example use 192.168.2.x if the main network is 192.168.1.x.
