My system consists of Boost, Stereo Pair Gen2 Play5, Connect and five Play1s,. I have Sonosnet set to channel 11 and my home 2.4ghz network (ASUS RT-66 Merlin Firmware) set to channel 1. Channel 6 is always congested. My immediate neighbour has a Sky router that must be set to Auto as it is regularly changing channel, causing me dropouts. Sonosnet does not appear as a continuous signal, popping up on inSSIDer as multiple connections when Sonos is playing but only occasionally when not playing.
My questions are:
Is there a way of having Sonosnet active continuously so as to block my neighbours Auto wanderings?
My 2.4ghz channel 1 home WiFi is little utilised, but appears as a constant signal and as most of my other devices are connected to the 5ghz WiFi so can I have Sonosnet co-existing on channel 1 without too much issue or is the mere presence of a signal from my 2.4ghz WiFi going to cause me lots of problems? ?
I wish Sonos would consider using 5ghz for Sonosnet (not just for 5.1 setups) as the 2.4ghz WiFi even in Outer London is very congested. I am the sole user of 5ghz in my area and get good signal throughout the my house.
