Wifi Extender

I have a wifi extender for the garden. All my sonos products are on the main wifi. However when my phone switches onto the extender wifi, I can no longer access the Sonos network in the App.

The extender is TP-link (same as router) and is on the one-mesh setting with same name and password.

1st world problem I know! But annoying!

  1. Your extender must be configured as an extender.  If it has DHCP enabled, it is a router, not an extender.
  2. It must be configured for the same subnet and SSID/Password as the router.

Great - thanks. All working

Hi 

mine is connected I think 🤔 but when I try to group all my speakers together it says one of the speakers are on a wifi extender so will not play in group

i have tried the move 1st but that doesn’t seem to sort the issue as I have tried all the other speaker and says the same thing so I can’t find which one is connected if at all? 
this issue has appeared since I have added the move to the system 

many ideas
