I recently acquired a used Sonos Connect (Gen1) with a view to integrating my hifi (in a separate room) with my Sonos network of room speakers in the rest of the house. When connected by Ethernet cable, the Connect participates in multi-room play without a problem. When connected wirelessly, as soon as other rooms are included in the group, the Connect ceases to play while the other rooms continue to do so. I thought the location it was in might have only a weak wireless signal but this problem occurs (wirelessly) wherever the Connect is located. None of the other speakers have a problem connecting wirelessly.
I also use a Sonos Bridge connected directly by Ethernet to the router to facilitate wireless connectivity.
The reason why this cannot be solved simply by using a wired connection is that the room where the Connect is to be used cannot be reached by that method.
Is this a configuration/set-up issue or is the Connect faulty?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
