Setup options

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 switch between wired and wireless setup if something changes in your home. Learn more about setting up your Sonos products.
