If you are experiencing interference from other devices in your home or hear the music dropping or skipping, one thing you can try is to change the wireless channel that your Sonos is running on. The process for changing the wireless channel is different based on your setup. If you have the standard setup, you change the channel in the router software and if you have the Boost setup, you change it in the Sonos App. Remember when changing the channel, that Sonos can operate on only channels 1, 6 or 11.
