I have 2 ones and 2 play 1. Two of them are grouped in my bedroom and the other two are placed in my bathroom and kitchen. I had some troubles with lag in the app, the volume didn’t really follow my command when increasing/decreasing so I thought to myself “maybe I should buy a boost!”
I bought one and after installing it the app worked better. However(!), It looks like all rooms are playing but the sound disappears for a few seconds in my bathroom and bedroom (which are the furthest away from my router and boost) and then returns for a limited time then disappears again and again and again... When I un-group the rooms and play in just one or 2 rooms it works perfectly but it can’t seem to handle 3, which is REALLY odd?
Here is what I’ve tried:
I’ve tried changing the channel and no one is better than the other. I have around 50mb/sec in my bedroom/bathroom and a solid network. I’ve removed the boost now and the music streams fluently no problem. But the app seems a bit slower again.
What are your recommendations? Why isn’t the boost helping? And how can I fix this?

As soon as I experienced again I ran a diagnostic report. Here is the number: 307508486.
Thank you for the help!
Smilja's advice is good. I also notice that there is some wireless interference causing your Boost to have a hard time communicating with your Sonos speakers. How close if your Boost to your router? Are there any other wireless devices close by? Try keeping at least a couple feet in between your Boost and any other electronics and see if that helps.
