I use a Bridge and a Boost in my current Sonos setup and wanted to add back a previous Bridge to replace a Play:1 used as a “Bridge”, but which I now want to use elsewhere. I actually have 4 Bridges that I haven’t used for some while and have tried to add each of them in turn back to the Sonos system without success.
Each time, I tried I had them in the same room as the Boost, close by my router. When I first connected them they needed a software update, which is understandable, and for this they had to be connected direct to Router. This allowed the update to take place and then they were visible in About My Sonos; however, as soon as the ethernet cable was removed, they disappeared from the system and no amount of Adding them back could find them.
Anybody got ideas what I am doing wrong? As I say, I have tried 4 different Bridges, so think it unlikely that they are all kaput. I know that Bridge is no longer flavour of the month with Sonos, but I have one that is already working exactly as I want the new one to do and can see no reason why none of them will work.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
