Equipment: 1 Boost 12 Sonos One Speakers
Formerly 1 Google wifi puck, now replaced with 3 Eero 6+ pucks (same problem though)
Approximately 2,000 sqft mostly open space.
For years I have struggled with Spotify issues (unreliable, speakers and volume dropping out, “can’t connect to Spotify” messages, skipping tracks etc). However, Pandora works 90% more reliably.
Sonos tech help solution was to connect one or more speakers to wifi pucks (not from modem, just ethernet wire from puck to speaker). I purchased the Eero 6+ mesh system due to each puck having it’s own Ethernet port. However, I have since learned Eero says NOT to connect the sonos speakers to pucks as it will degrade performance.
- Is it unique to Eero products that I “shouldn’t” wire directly to speakers? Is there a brand/model that is recommended?
- Currently all of my 13 sonos products are connecting to the puck that is hardwired to my boost and modem, therefore making my other 2 pucks virtually obsolete. Eero says to change Sonos from Wired with boost to wireless “Station” set up so that “perhaps” the speakers will connect to the closer pucks and unburden the system. (however sonos says that I need 1 boost for every 5 or so devices). I have not tried the station/wireless method yet.
Any insights will be greatly appreciated.
