I was under the impression that my Sonos Controller (iPad) needed to be on a 2.4Ghz wifi (same as Sonos) to work appropriately. However, my iPad is on my 5Ghz connection and seems to be working fine. The reason that I am looking for confirmation is that today my 2.4Ghz wifi connection dropped to 5Mbps or less bandwidth and I couldn't play my Sonos system.
I called the cable company to confirm all was ok. Then I replaced my Netgear router with a TP-Link router. The 5Ghz connection is blazing fast but my 2.4 is inconsistent. I have a Boost setup with 2 Play1s, aSub, 2 Play5s, 2 Play3s and a Connect. Can someone comment on how this works? I'm concerned that if my 2.4Ghz wifi from the router continues on this path that I will have issues with Sonos. I listen to Sonos almost every waking minute when I'm home!
