I have a several Sonos speakers an an Amp and due to various connection problems have finally succumbed to purchasing a Sonos Boost.
I know if I have the boost connected to my router by an ethernet all my other Sonos products “talk” to the boost rather than my router thus freeing some of my router speed up because they are using the Sonosnet instead of my home wifi.
However if i were to remove the ethernet cable would the speakers revert back to using my router wifi signal or continue using the Sonosnet?
Before anyone tells me that it shouldn't revert back to the wifi because i should of removed the wifi settings from my system I can't remove the wifi from my system as I have a Sonos Move and this prevents me from doing so.
All products on system connection type is WM:0 with the exception of the Move which is WM:1

The speakers would revert to Wifi if the Boost is your only wired Sonos device and you remove the Ethernet cable. The Boost will then perform the same function as a brick.
