I have a Netgear Orbi mesh WiFi system, with the 2.4ghz channel set to auto. My Sonos units are using SonosNet (channel 11) as opposed to WiFi; I have two Play 3s in my kitchen, a connect amp in my living room, a Bridge that is hardwired to one of the Orbi units in my basement, and a Play 1 on the second level of my house.
My issue is that, I’ve just noticed that when I play playlists from Apple Music, it’ll eventually return either a connection lost error or the “insufficient network speed” error. This only seems to occur with playlists; streaming from my Mac mini music library (also hardwired) and Apple Music radio does not seem to be affected. Further, I can stream playlists on my other Sonos units just fine, it is only an issue with the play 1 on the second floor. I submitted a diagnostic and the confirmation number is 846478511.
My wired Bridge is next to one of my Orbi units, so I tried changing the 2.4ghz WiFi channel to 1, no effect. I’ve tried changing the power output from the router as well, also no effect. Why would Apple Music playlists stop playing or skip tracks, and only on one speaker, but everything else works? Any help would be appreciated.
