I have a Sonos 5.1 setup with a Bridge which was setup several years ago when the Bridge was not optional. Running out of network ports in my router and I would like to remove the bridge to free up a LAN port.
What is the right way of doing this? Assume I shouldn't simply unplug the bridge or can I? I did also see other similar topics (some over a year old) on this forum suggesting that it is recommended to have the bridge for multiple speakers. I have a decent router (NETGEAR - Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router) and all my speakers are close to the router, so I am not too concerned about wifi network performance.
Appreciate any advice on this.

I use several 24 port switches at my router and several more 8 port switches at my equipment locations so I only need to run a single Ethernet line to each spot.
