While DLNA/SSDP discovery of Sonos is great, when you're in a situation where you want to IP segment your untrusted IOT devices away from your trusted network and plant a firewall in between, the discovery part becomes an issue.

The proposal (that does not impact user interaction flows)
- within the controller software, upon discovery/operation with the SONOS devices, memorize the IP addresses used by the devices, and leverage that list to relocate at least one device to query against in order to discover the sonos network of devices again.
- If that fails, present the usual failure message.
