I am currently debugging my network as I face the loss of connectivity to my speakers. As only change, I recently added two more speakers to my setup. Now it is 1 controller + 4 Play:1.
While looking at the thing, I see 4 SonosZP speakers show up in the WLAN of my Router (not Controller, Router).
My Question is: should the Router be aware of my Speakers? As I have understood, the Sonos Controller should open up a network only for the Speakers. It looks to me as I would have done something wrong, since the Router is aware of the Speakers - thus, maybe messing up my WLAN as they are already 10 devices connected.
Do I need to rerun the setup? Or is it normal the Speakers are connected to the Routers WLAN too?

There's no 'separate network'. All Sonos devices are stations on the router's IP subnet. Players default to the network name "SonosZP".
If a user chooses to wire one of the Sonos units, they all then interconnect using SonosNet. Think of it as a private WiFi if you wish. The devices are still all part of the router's IP subnet.
