I have a fairly extensive Sonos system (3 Play 5 stereo pairs, 5 Play Ones in different rooms, an Amp, a Playbar, Sub and two Play 3s in a 5.1 setup and a Move). All have been running on SonosNet with a Boost connected to my router and a Connect on the far end of the house for support.
I upgraded my Wi-Fi network to a new Orbi mesh setup with two satellites. We now have absolutely full and fast Wi-Fi coverage in the whole house that works great.
Sonos often sputters when starting—we have a lot of competing Wi-Fi signals around us and it would seem SonosNet and our own Orbi network are probably stepping on each other too. The sputtering (rooms linked together not always all starting to play right away, sometimes dropping out) was an issue before but seems worse since upgrading the main Wi-Fi network.
Given the above, should I switch Sonos over to Wi-Fi setup to run through our Orbi network? Any downsides? Should I expect better performance? And, if it doesn’t work, how much of a hassle to switch back to the SonosNet/Boost setup?
Thanks in advance.
