I want to set up my Play 5 in my condo that only has wifi for the building. I have no access to a wired connection. Would I use a wireless router to create my own wireless network? How do I do that without access to the wired internet connection?

The best thing to do is get something like a Travel router. It will pull the condo wifi and create a new wifi network for just you. So it would then be like you have a router like normal .... just that the internet is coming from another wifi network.

I have the TP Link I used at condo we were staying at last week and used their wifi to setup my Sonos.
