Quick question guys. My system is 1 x playbar, 1 x playbase, 1 x play 3, 1 x play 5 and 6 x play 1. Recently moved house the speakers are now spread out over a larger area. 99% of the time no issues but sometimes my system is lagging. If I get a BOOST, does it need to be connected to a player as well as the router or will just being connected to the router be enough?
Thanks in advance...

Hi. Just the router. But try wiring a Play speaker temporarily to see if that helps before you splash out on a Boost. You may have to reboot ( power cycle) every Sonos unit to get everything working as it should.

Also, go into Advanced Settings, Wireless Setup, and delete (reset) your wifi credentials.

That’s really helpful, thanks John. I think I’ll have to go down the Boost route as opposed to wiring a speaker as my router is in a really awkward spot!
