Dear Sonos community,
2 days ago I bought a new sound system for my living room. I wanted to get rid of all the wires that came with my old surround sound system so I made the switch to Sonos.
I got the Sonos playbar, Sub and 2 Play 1 speakers. The playbar is the only one connected to my router via cable, the other 3 are connected wireless.
The night after installing everything I noticed that Netflix had to load during movies and series on my TV (never had this before). Wireless internet feels slower as well.
Since it happened just after installing the Sonos system I think that has to be the thing that slows it down. I have allready changed the channel of my wireless internet to channel 1 (read that in another topic) but haven't notived any improvement so far. I would love to keep the system as is and get the old internet speed back (or at least an improvement so Netflix doesn't have to reload the movie every few minutes.
My internet connection:
150 Mbit download/s 15Mbit upload/s
Connected to this are:
A PC (wired)
Sonos (playbar, sub, 2 Play 1)
normally 2 phones, sometimes more
- Am I right in assuming it's the sonos system that slows down my internet connection
- Can anybody give a indication in how much bandwith my current sonos setup requires
- Should switching the channel help at all
- Would it make a difference if I connected the sub via a cable? (I don't want to connect both Play 1's via cable because then the whole 'wireless' part is gone)
I hope somebody can help me with this problem. If you need any other information or have any other tips next to the questions I answered let me know and I'll provide it as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance!
