I’m a long time user of Sonos with a One, Play:1 and Play:3 at home. However, we moved house to a bigger house with a decent sized garden, and now the nice weather is here and we’ve started to sit in the garden I am finding an issue with my phone being too far from the router so having poor connectivity to WiFi which means the phone cannot control Sonos.
- Router is in the living room at the front right corner of the house
- Sonos One is also in the living room (front left corner), Play:3 is in the front bedroom upstairs and Play:1 is on the kitchen windowsill close to the back door which leads on to the rear garden. None are hard wired.
- Patio area where we sit is in the back left corner of the garden, effectively diagonally opposite the router.
So, I was wondering if buying a Sonos Boost (or hardwiring the Sonos One) might solve the issue?
As the problem isn’t with the Sonos speakers being too far away from the router (they work perfectly), it’s just the phone that’s getting too far away and dropping the WiFi signal I’m not sure whether the boost will extend the WiFi coverage to the phone in the garden or is literally just to add extra speakers further away?
Any help appreciated! Thanks
