I’m hoping someone can solve an issue I’ve had for years.
I have a Sonos Play5 and a 1 --both first gen. I like the sound, but the connectivity has always been buggy. Half the time I open the S1 app from my iphone (or wife’s pixel phone) it says it’s unavailable or it just won’t play music. Half the time it works fine. Sometimes it works fine and then stops working. It’s buggy.
I wonder if it has to do with my Eero mesh wifi system. I have the main eero hub and two satellites. Could it be that the sonos (which are both in the same room, living room) connect to the main Eeero and the phones may switch if I go to a different room? Could that cause connectivity issues?
Or could it be something else?
Any pointer on getting this to work more reliably would be great. I’ve called sonos many times over the years and they’ve helped trouble shoot the issue -- sometimes they help, sometimes not, but regardless, a few days later it’s aways back to buggy.
I’m considering getting a different home music streaming set up, but I hate to junk the Sonos since, sound wise, they work. And they’re not THAT old!
