Hi there everyone!
i bought a Sonos 5.1 surround sound system for my living room (not installed yet since im away at work). It is a relatively small living room and the internet (google wifi mesh sytem) is located in the living room also. If i ran an internet line directly to the Playbar or Sub would that device than create the "Sonos Nest signal" or do i need to buy the Sonos Bridge to achieve that? Would rather the whole system not run through my regular wifi signal.

thanks!

No need to get the BRIDGE. But don't connect the ethernet cable to the SUB, connect it to the PLAYBAR.

The PLAYBAR connects to the SUB and surround speakers using its own 5Ghz signal, so be aware that there is a very minor possibility for interference there (I'd guess less than .01%, but it's not zero).
Awesome! running an internet cable to the sound bar will be very easy than, i can run it with the HDMI cables coming from the entertainment hutch.
