I can’t find my network in choose a network and I have an Ethernet cable attached to the speaker from router I’m temporarily living in a rental and have a new network.  I’ve reset speaker and have been working on connecting the speaker for 3 days.  I’m seriously reconsidering the value of Sonos. Should a change of networks be this frustrating?  I’m ready to throw out the speaker

Please make sure your new network is broadcasting 2,4 GHz. Some networks have 2,4 GHz deactivated and only broadcast 5 GHz, which Sonos cannot connect to.

Usually a wired connection is more stable than wifi, so you could consider keeping it wired and not on wifi.

Thank you, but my router is in the basement and my family room is upstairs which is where I wanted to use  Sonos

Also check that your router is set to support 2.4 GHz WiFi B/G as some new units don’t come preset to that mode.
