I tried several times to have a wireless/wired SONOS network, but always ended up with crashing the network due to STP issues. Currently everything is wireless, but a couple of speakers are a little too distant, so I want to return to a wireless/wired setup.
Due to the disruption it made to all network users in the past, I want to have a test setup that can be isolated and adjusted independently of the rest of my SONOS gear and powered off when I am not testing.
What do I need to do to move a few SONOS speakers to a test network?
I think I need to do this:
separate WiFi Access Port
traffic isolation between main / test devices including broadcast packets
move the iPhone from one VLAN to another running the SONOS controller app.
But am also thinking that I need to deregister some SONOS devices to get them completely removed from the existing setup. In the past I had issues with missing speakers and SONOS trying to re-discover speakers that were at a different physical location.
