Missing Sonos One

I have a system with 6 Sonos Ones operating around my house, running over a Netgear Orbi mesh network. Recently one of the speakers stopped working, and dropped off the network completely. Both lights on the top of the missing speaker are lit white indicating that it is on the network but it doesn’t show up in the sonos app or on the Orbi app as connected. I suspected an issue with the mesh network and worked through all of those issues to no avail. I have searched through all of the forum postings and not found a solution that works to bring it back. At this point I suspect a hardware problem. Diagnostic #: 1837407629

Have you tried unplugging the affected One from power for a couple of minutes and rebooting your router and phone?

Yes. I’ve unplugged all of the devices and rebooted the router and the mesh several times. Nothing seems to work.

Hello @Pdc77, I had a look on your diagnostics and was only able to find 4 Sonos One at the time you submitted. Have you tried temporarily wiring the Sonos One that is missing directly to the main router with an Ethernet cable? Allow a couple minutes for the SonosNet to activate and check the Sonos app. Can you see the missing Sonos One now? If yes, then by going to “Settings → System → Network → Manage Networks → Update Networks" while the Sonos One is still wired you can refresh the network details on the Sonos System. When that is done, you could remove the Ethernet cable and see if the Sonos One is still on your system. Unplug it afterwards and move it to its original location and you should be able to see it then. Let me know if that worked.

Thanks for the reply and I apologize for not responding sooner - was out of town for the last few weeks unexpectedly. Finally had time to try your suggestion. Connecting directly to the router via Ethernet cable does not help the situation - the missing sonos 1 is still not showing up in my system. I have resubmitted a diagnostic today (1803297902).

Hey @Pdc77 , I had a look at the new diagnostics, unfortunately still unable to find the missing Sonos One. I suggest you contact Sonos Support for a live troubleshooting, as they can help you further.
