My sonos system has become practically unusable lately.
the desktop app simply doesn't work. my laptop is line of sight with the router that is 2 meters away and the speakers are also line of sight and a few meters away. when i try to apply a playlist to a room it comes up with a 1001 error. rarely does changing the volume or grouping speakers work. i don't even bother using the desktop app anymore because i know it isn't going to work. this is annoying because i am always at my computer but don't usually have my phone to hand.
when using the phone there is similar results, but the phone will eventually be able to apply music to the speakers.
i don't know if this is sonos's fault, it could be my network setup, but i do have a very fancy Netgear Nighthawk R9000 router which should have some good network coverage.
it is possible that it might be something to do with the speakers being on the 2.4g and the phone and laptop being on 5.0g
but it seems to have got worse the more speakers i have added. i have 12 speakers spread across the house and initially when i had 4 or 5, the system was great, its why i was inspired to buy the others because the speakers just worked every time. now it is a pain in the ass to get them to play anything.
does anyone else have this problem or a solution?
