I was wondering what the best practice for rebooting Mesh Routers. I have a lot of devices with reserved IP addresses and every time I am making a change I have to reboot the router. As a result all the Sonos devices that were attached to the main router are now picking up one of the satellites. The only way I have found to get the devices back to where they belong is to power cycle all my Sonos units. Any ideas to avoid this?

The grouping problems could be being compounded by Sonos devices connecting to the various mesh nodes on different channels. For optimal group performance units should share the same channel, so that they can talk to one another peer-to-peer.
I really don’t understand why Sonos Support advised switching away from SonosNet (‘wired’) mode. These kinds of grouping problems shouldn’t arise in a SonosNet setup as the units all mesh together via their own dedicated channel. I suggest you try that arrangement again, and see if you can avoid having to fight the Orbi mesh.
