Hi, I have 3 play 1’s and a connect connected to my tv in the lounge, all 4 devices are connected via CAT5 cables which run to my 48port Netgear Gigabit switch, I have over 100mbps internet and still I’m getting drop outs, I have listened to the audio on each speaker and it seems fine but I can’t work out which one is at fault, can anyone help? I’m not very tech minded.

 

many thanks

Dup IPs can be sneaky… have you actually given all Sonos devices reserved IPs?

There is no way of seeing duplicate IP addresses at the router, for the reasons set out in the post.  I suggest that you follow the steps as it’s good network practice anyway.
