Sonos Boost


Badge
Hello All,

I purchased a boost 6 months or so ago, I have a play bar, sub, two play ones and a Sonos One. I have them all set up through the boost but they are all still showing up as connected to the network. is this normal? I was under the impression that they would all show up as one connection to the network when using the boost.

Thank you!

Yes, it is normal. The wireless protocol Sonosnet (aka "Boost Setup") uses is a proprietary Layer 2 protocol, but it still uses standard Layer 3 IP networking. This means all Sonos devices must still use standard lP addresses.

You can check in the system status in settings. All that are using boost should show mw0 as the mode. Which indicates boost is being used rather than wifi.

You might also like looking at the Network Matrix page. It shows what each Sonos is connected to.
