Serious s/w issues @Sonos. Update your controller and knock every speaker off network and can't get them back. This will undoubtedly take me a couple of hours to fix AGAIN. Last update did the same thing. You need to do better.

After controller update completes, speakers initially showing green light. If rebooted by power cycle they come back white light but not seen by controller. Suggestions on how to get speakers recognized by controller appreciated.

Unplug your Sonos devices from power.

Reboot your router

Plug back in first speaker, and allow it enough time to finish booting up.

Move on to the next speaker and plug it in, again waiting long enough for it to boot up.

Repeat last instruction for the rest of your speakers.

To keep this issue from arising again, set up reserved IP addresses for Your Sonos devices in your router.
