Holy F how is this happening again? We have been conned into thinking Sonos was a first rate product and they continually fail to deliver. Nothing more frustrating than paying thousands and thousands of dollars for a service that doesn't work when you want it to. I hope fSonos is paying people overtime to fix the Apple Music problems
+1; same problem here... Apple Music worked fine on Sonos a few hours ago. Apple Music still works on iPhone and iTunes and I can still play internet radio on Sonos...

Hi mellox90,

Your Sonos speaker is losing connection to your wireless network from time to time. Please try changing your router's wireless channel to 1 or 11 and see if that helps.
Me too, same problem. 4 speakers in the house that are currently not usable!! What a waste of money! 7002404
And 20 minutes later they are working. Very frustrating.

Hi bswanson,

Your speakers are losing connection to your wireless network from time to time. Please try rebooting your router. Also, it may help to change your router's wireless channel to 6 or 11.

Thanks Jeff, but how come when the speakers were losing connection, I was able to stream music via the Apple Music app whilst the speakers weren't working and was also able to stream a movie via my Apple TV immediately beforehand? Seems a bit strange blaming the wireless network, when my other hardware items had no issues with the connection and the Sonos speakers were closest to the router. Is the root cause of the connection issue not within the speakers?

Your diagnostic report shows that your speakers are losing connection to the wireless network. They reconnect quickly, but this can be enough to stop the buffering on a stream of music. Most of the time this is due to wireless interference. This could also be due to other networking issues. It's hard to say from the diagnostic report alone. If the steps given don't help, let me know and I'll create a support ticket for you and get you in touch with our phone team who can take a deeper look.
Sorry if this isn't the correct place to post this - but today I've had problems with tracks stopping, connectivity to Apple music lost, same playing from my iPhone. Happy to submit a diagnostic code.

There are some underflow errors which indicate that the streaming media was too slow getting to your speakers, leading to an audio cut out. It may help to change your router's wireless channel to one that is a bit less crowded Please try changing your router's wireless channel to 1 and see if playback improves.
Thx Jeff - I changed both 2.4 and 5 GHz channels from Auto to specific channels, and I'm sitting listening with my fingers crossed.

Hmmm, looks like the recent issues are not Sonos related...

Hi glprice17,

If you're still having issues playing Apple Music it may help to change your router's wireless channel to 6. This should reduce interference from nearby networks. Let me know how it goes.

Hi staze,

It looks like there's some wireless interference causing communication errors on your system. Try changing your router's wireless channel to 6 and see if things improve.
