I've been reading through the forums but can't quite see a solution to an issue I have when using my Sonos controller on my phone and moving between wifi access points, so just wondering if anyone can help or has any advice?
In summary, if I connect to Sonos using the controller on the first access point (AP1) and then move to a different area of the house where the phone then picks up a better signal from AP2, once connected to AP2 the Sonos controller app then seems to lose connection to the Sonos system completely.
My simple setup is as follows:
- BT Smart Hub router on ground floor of 3 floor house. Broadcasting 2.4ghz and 5ghz frequencies on different SSIDs (e.g. SSID-24 and SSID-5). SSID-24 on channel 1. SSID-5 on channel 36.
- Sonos Bridge hard-wired into back of BT router with ethernet.
- Sonos Play1 connected to Sonos Bridge using sonosnet. Sonosnet using channel 6. Wifi credentials removed from Play1. Sonos controller indicates Bridge and Play1 are using WM:0
- TP-Link powerline adapter plugged in to power socket and connected to BT router with ethernet.
- Other end of TP-Link powerline adapter plugged in to power socket on 3rd floor of house. This adapter broadcasting wifi at 2.4ghz using the same 2.4ghz details as the router (i.e. same SSID, password, channel).
Is there any likely solution to this or is this just the way it is when using multiple APs with the Sonos controller? Is there another powerline to use that doesn't have this issue (have tested with BT powerline adapter but same issue)? Would using a mesh system for the controller be better (BT Whole Home or Ubiquiti Amplifi for example)?
Cheers for any thoughts.
