I recently moved, so I’m setting up my system again. However, I’m having a strange issue. I have 8 speakers (9 but one setup is stereo Sonos Ones), all latest generation. The main difference between this new system and my old system is that all the speakers are WiFi until I can get some wires around the house. My old house had several speakers wired (not with SonosNet).
I’m having two issues. First, sometimes one controller won’t see all the speakers. For example, my computer right now only sees 5/8 speakers, but my phone and iPad sees all. Come back an hour later, and things will change. This setup was an absolute rock for years prior (I’ve been using Sonos since the the year of their founding). I’ve toyed with STP, RSTP, rebooting switches, reboot routers, rebooting EVERYTHING, reseting speakers, etc. Nothing seems to impact that over time controllers lose speakers and then find them again.
The second issue is that I can’t reliably join. For example, I have speaker Family Room and another Master Bed. I can play each speaker individually without a problem. I can play something on Master Bed and then add Master Bed so both play the same thing. However, I can’t join the other way → Add Master Bed to Family Room. The controller will show the group as playing, but no music plays in the Master Bed.
I’m pretty technical (been running software groups for 30+ years). I have all Ubiquity network systems. My networking gear is all the same from my old house, and that system was flawless for years. There is little, if any, interference here as well. My network dashboards show signals all in the -40 to -60dBm range.
