Both speakers dropping wifi weekly.

Not unlike several threads I've seen recently that have gone unanswered or deflected by Sonos, I have two Sonos One speakers that have been randomly disconnected from Wi-Fi now weekly with no solution.  I unplug and reconnect...nothing. Always with the same message from the Sonos app: “unable to connect to Sonos, let's fix it!”  Well, nothing is being fixed. They were fine for the first 4 months in my office so it's not an IP issue, etc. Why is this happening now?

Wifi interference? Duplicate ip addresses? What happens if you:

 - power down your speakers and router, then

 - restart your router, then

 - wait till it’s fully restarted and wifi is running, and then

 - power up your Sonos devices, one at a time? 

Tried all of the above. If everything else in my office is connected and experiencing no problems then why do I need to reset anything to make my speakers work? Clearly it's not a Wi-Fi issue. It's a Sonos issue.

Then why do so many of us have stable, reliable systems? I’ve gone through the last 10+ system updates and several years’ running time without issues.

I see two clear choices:

Demand Sonos fix the problem.

Set static/reserved IP addresses in your router’s DHCP. Then reboot everything.

 

Guess which I’ve been waiting on for many years and which one fixed my problems in 15 minutes.
