Hi I've connected a boost to my system as my wifi was poor at the back of my house. Do I still need my bridge connected or can I just use a boost??

You need one Sonos unit hooked to your router when using Sonosnet. That can be any Sonos unit - bridge, boost, Play, Connect etc.
Thanks Chris, I've connected my boost to the router to the front of the house and placed my bridge at the rear of the house it seems to be working fine.
If you have speakers at the back of the house then the best place for the Bridge may be half-way between the rear of the house and the Boost. But if it's working fine, maybe leave well alone.

Yes as John says - the bridge is now just acting as a repeater so you want to place it in the middle of the biggest gap you have between Sonos devices.
Thanks guys I'll have a play and find the best place for it.
