Like many people I was having problems making/retaining connection to my Sonos system after switching to the latest BT hub. It seems to be working well now after changing the IPv6 address allocation to 'Stateful' (from stateless) in the advanced settings. I thought I'd share this in the hope that others might have similar success.

I don't quite see how this is of relevance. Sonos uses IPv4. The issue with the Hub6 is that duplicate IPs arise when using a PLAYBAR with bonded satellites.

It could be that the change you made had some kind of beneficial side-effect. Do you in fact have a PLAYBAR with a SUB and/or surrounds?

I do have a PLAYBAR but it is on its own without a sub or surrounds.
