Solution: i bought the Netgear managed switch GS108Ev3 for under €50,- (US $55)
I connected Both Sonos Play 5 (gen1) wired directly to this 8 port switch (port 7+8). From this Netgear GS108Ev3 switch i connected to my RT-AC68u router (port 1).
I contacted the sonos support they confirmed with a diagnosenumber that network package drops moved without the netgear from (bad) 80% -> with netgear (perfect) 0%.

Used Asus RT-AC68u Firmware Version:3.0.0.4.380_3831
Used Netgear GS108Ev3 firmware Version 2.00.08
I only configured the local ip-adress to the netgear switch.

I added a simple mspaint illustration of my setup.
