I have a sonos connected to my WiFi, but the signal isn’t great so i’ve Purchased a range extender to help improve the sonos connection. I can’t get my sonos to connect to it though. Any help?

You got a non-Sonos range extender? Search here and see if you can find a mention of your unit and if anyone got it to work.

Sonos makes the Boost that might be an option to consider.

Hi, same problem here. I try to connect 1 of my 2 sonos one in the livingroom to my Linksys extender w an ethernet cable and still i can only use the 2,4 GHz network, not the 5 GHz 😞 Is there a way if i changed any setting in the Linksys extender? Which settings have to be changed? I know i could wire a sonos one to the router, but that would mean having a cable across the living room lol. Thank u!

Sonos isn't compatible with any sort of Wireless Range Extenders for a reason. Both ONEs should establish a connection to your router.
ramiobcn,

The warnings about extenders, repeaters, hotspots etc. are briefly mentioned here in this Sonos Support Page link:
