I seem to have the same problems may others are having connecting their Play1s as surrounds to the playbar. The error I receive is "Surround setup error. There was a problem adding the surround speaker. Make sure the surround speaker and your PLAYBAR are connected to power".
Troubleshooting already taken (per what I've seen on other threads):
-I've removed/readded the Play1s.
-Attempted setup on both PC and Android devices.
-I've changed the channel on my wireless access point from 2 to 1 (band showed 6 and 11 were in heavy use, but 1 was not in use at all).
-Turned off all 5g wireless on the wireless access point.
-Turned off all other sources of wireless activity in the immediate area.
-Sacrificed a virgin and half my harvest, but still no joy. Any further suggestions would be helpful..
Ran a diagnostic since that seems to be the next step in troubleshooting...

Hey there, Mike Alvelais
. Thanks for posting and welcome to the Community. I was able to pull up the diagnostic report and noticed that you are running your network off of Ruckus Wireless hardware. I have seen a few challenges when working with these devices, where we will need to enable multicast traffic. This allows the Surrounds and the PLAYBAR to talk properly. The process is a little in-depth and may require logging into the router and running a few commands in the command line interface. Did you install this network?
The other workaround is to plug in one of your Sonos devices into the Ruckus Router and switch from a Standard setup to a BOOST configuration
