I am wondering whether to set up my system as wired or wireless. I am getting a lot of errors that it can’t find network using the wireless setup or trying to stream music. I have the cable modem/router my internet provider (cox cable) which is a Technicolor CGM4141. I have a mixture of older and newer products. I have also have the McAffee security and firewall running downloaded from my provider. I just now connected one of my Ones instead of using the bridge that came with my original Play 5. I’m not sure if that will make a difference. I want to use whichever setup which is most dependable. I also want to use whatever setup doesn't slow down or affect other products in the house.

I would personally choose to go with the wired SonosNet Connection. See below…
Cable a single Sonos device direct to your main router (if practicable) and that will move all your Sonos products over to a SonosNet connection.
- Set the SonosNet channel in “Settings/System/Network” of the Sonos App so that it is at least 5 channels away from your chosen ‘fixed’ non-overlapping router 2.4ghz channel.
- Remove/reset the WiFi credentials in the Sonos App “Settings/System/Network/Wireless Setup”. These are not needed when running the devices on SonosNet. (This step is optional, if running Sonos Software v11.0 or higher) and do not remove the credentials if you have a Sonos ‘Move’ as that device may require these settings.
Hope that assists.
