Hi all, ive searched but cant quite seem to find the answer to this issue im having.
I have an extension with playbar, sub plus two play ones for the surround sound.
I have SKY broadband and a wired network through house. Behind my TV i have a 4 port switch as the SKY BB router is about 50m away so its hard wired. The Playbar is hard wired via network to the SKY BB router which is across the other side of the house. Other SONOs kit is all WIFI connected through the playbar i assume.
My Sky Q box is above the playbar and i have a mini in another room with WIFI ON 2.4G to create a WIFI network through the house - which works well.
Issue im having is when im stood in front of the SONOs kit my iphone app wont find it. Only when i walk through to where the SKY BB router is will it connect. I can start to play music fine and when i walk back through to the SONOS room i can control volume and select track but the app itself doesn't update.
So in with my basic knowledge of WIFI it seems i need to be in front of the SKY BB router to obtain the handshake so i can connect but when i walk through house 50m away it retains the connection as long as im playing something, if i stop i cant re-connect. It seems the SKY wifi network between router, Q and mini is slightly different even though the SSAD is the same (although you cant select this on the sky kit) > the SSID that i program into the router must be different as it passes through the sky boxes? even though my mobile will connect to my single 2.4g network everywhere.
