Lately, I've had issues with some speakers (rooms) not being available depending on whether I'm looking at my PC, my iPhone, or my Ipad. It's not consistent from device to device. All are using the same wireless SSID. Sometimes the iPhone app indicates I'm on the wireless network, but it can't find the Sonos speakers on it. Sometimes 1 speaker shows up.
Also, when I go into the web-based admin setup for the Orbi, the device lists indicates that all Sonos speakers are "wired" devices; they are not.
Because I can't set IP addresses for each speaker, I'm relying to Sonos to do some magic with a combination of the speakers themselves and the app (on my phone or iPad which are inconsistent) and have become frustrated trying to troubleshoot where the problem is.
I've not yet connected my Playbar for fear of becoming all the more frustrated with the process. I love the speakers, but I don't love the setup process. Can someone point me in the right direction to get this tested and set up properly?
Any help is really appreciated.

To be honest you're likely to get much more reliable performance by wiring a Sonos unit to the main Orbi node, which will put the system onto its own SonosNet wireless mesh. If it's not convenient to wire a player then wire a Boost.
