I set up my first Play:1 in standard set-up. I then added a second Play:2 near my router, so I switched to the boost set-up. I followed the instructions and everything seemed to be working although I was unable to follow the suggestion to remove wifi settings as it didn't seem to know them (no reset button to click, it seemed to want me to go through a wizard to add the wifi password) so I assumed it was forgotten.
Later, I checked in About My Sonos System and the first speaker was showing as WM:1. The one connected to the router is WM:0. Am I right in thinking both should be WM:0 if they're correctly in boost mode? Both are working but I'd prefer both in boost as our network is quite congested.
I tried rebooting the first speaker by turning it off - it still showed WM:1. I read somewhere online to try a factory reset (hopefully not the wrong thing to do, I should probably have asked here first) and that seemed to work. Both were then showing as WM:0. I thought that a factory reset would remove any wifi information so it was all fixed.
Unfortunately, I had to unplug the speaker (the one not connected to the router) for a few seconds and when it restarted and I checked About My Sonos System, it was back at WM:1. I don't know how that's even possible as it should have forgotten the wifi settings during the factory reset, but it is definitely using the wifi as when I turn off the other speaker it still works.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated as to what I've done wrong and how to fix it. Thanks.
