I recently upgraded my S1 Sonos system to S2 (removing two original Play:5 speakers, and adding a half dozen Ikea Symfonisk bookshelf speakers). Everything was, and still is, connected to SonosNet through a Boost wired to my router that I’ve had for some time. Everything works fine after upgrading the app and adding the new speakers, and all is still on SonosNet.
To help ensure extended range and prevent dropouts, I purchased a second Boost last week to add wirelessly halfway through the house. However, I cannot get it set up. I plug it in, choose Settings: System: Add Product in the S2 app for Android, make sure Bluetooth is on on my phone, and then wait for the Boost light to turn from white to flashing green (set up) before I press the Bluetooth button on the Boost to make it change to flashing orange (connecting).
The S2 app on my phone never recognizes it as it scans for products to add. I’ve tried this multiple times. The original wired boost continues to work (Sonos System Info shows all products connected, as WM:0).
I’m about to send the second Boost back since it’s not absolutely necesssary and seems very difficult to get set up with the S2 app. Is there something easy I’m missing? There aren’t any detailed setup instructions for a Boost used as a second, wireless booster for SonosNet that I can find.
