drop outs and delay when starting/skipping

Userlevel 1

So when I start playing music or skipping tracks music seems to be instant on one or two speakers, then over a few seconds jumps to remaining speakers. Often it starts on all, but then cuts out on some before restarting

I have tried with Sonos net on and off, wiring one speaker or several, different combinations but to no joy.

I have submitted a diagnostic:292871884

My router is an asus rt ac86u.i only live in a flat and have great WiFi coverage. Also use ring, hue, smart things, which all work great.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Try disabling Airtime Fairness for both 2.4 and 5GHz bands in your router’s settings:

Also try the solutions mentioned in this thread:

Thank you very much! Had to do a lot of the suggestions for it to work, but does appear to revolve around the router model.

Now fingers crossed it lasts.

Thanks again!
