Re: Changed the channel already?
In reply to TonyGamble, Feb 25, 2013

To be more specific I have a Virgin Media Superhub (with a sonos bridge connected to it) that is trying to connect to my Sonos Play 5 speaker via the Sonos controller app on my iphone

The router isnt a great one anyway according to popular opinion and is on the first floor front of the house and the room the speaker is in is on the ground floor at the back of the house

There is only effectively one wooden floor and one plasterboard wall between them so its not great performance

I will try changing the channel first but an extender might provide better performance as there are so many wifi signals near me

the only thing stopping from using the homeplug/ethernet cable option is that there is no wall socket free near the router as the pc etc are run from a 4 way socket extention
