Setting up Sonos on your home WiFi is the answer for most homes.
If your WiFi is slow, doesn’t reach all the rooms where you want to use Sonos, or is already in high demand you can connect a Sonos product to your router with an Ethernet cable to create a separate wireless network just for your Sonos system.
Note:Your Sonos products and the mobile device with the Sonos app need to be on the same WiFi network.
You can easily add a new Sonos product anytime—just plug it in, open the Sonos app on your mobile device, and tap > System > Add Product.
Add a different Sonos system
Sonos allows quick and easy access to any Sonos system. When you add another Sonos system in the app, it will automatically connect as you move from one place to another so you can enjoy Sonos at home, at a friend’s, or at your vacation house without missing a beat.
