I have a Sonos bridge BR100 which recently had a hardware fault. This was purchased in 2009 so is one of the very early Sonos Bridge.
I purchased a replacement Sonos Bridge and plugged this in however it doesnt seem to be working on the bridge. All my sonos devices are not WIFI enabled as I want to use the bridge for all communication link and effectively create a seperate WIFI network for just Sonos devices.
Is there any guidence on what I need to do to get the replacement Sonos bridge working on my existing devices.
I have been on the app and already added the new sonos bridge into the list, this was successful but this then didnt pick up all the other devices like play 5, play 1 and Sonos One.
I tried to add these products manually but have run into problems, it also tries to connect via bluetooth but as far as I am aware none of these products have bluetooth on them so am confused about that.
Look forward to any advice so I can start to use my Sonos devices again.

1/ Remove the Bridge from power.
2/ Wire one of the speakers to your router and power it up.
3/ Reset the controller app and when it starts tell it to add to an existing system. You should see all your speakers.
4/ Wire the Bridge to the network as well as the speaker.
5/ Power the Bridge up in reset, by holding down the Join button on top while connecting to power. Release the button when the LED flashes amber.
6/ When the Bridge flashes green, add it to the system.
7/ Unwire the speaker from the network and put it back in place.
