    Can this be the component that connects directly with Ethernet to our internet?   (10 Answers)

    We don't need a speaker in the small bedroom that houses our internet line. Can this then be the main component that connects directly with an Ethernet cable? And then have all the other speakers, in all the other rooms, connect wirelessly to this boost component? Or must we have a speaker connect directly with an Ethernet?

        You can use it to play stored music on a laptop, possibly a phone or Ipod, but it would be more limited. I believe that if you can connect to your computer, it will run.

        Yes, you can place the boost next to your router and the sonos will find it automatically when you pair them with the app on your phone, tablet, or computer.

        For my TV I use the sound bar, bass, two play 5's and two play 3's in the back. The play 5's are not necessary, however they do add to the sound while watching movies. Also, if you plan on listening to music, the combination of all the speakers s a great sound.

        I ran my sonos system of two play ones for a year without the Boost and never had a problem. I have 8 speakers now and decided to get and set up the boost. i am told that you can go up to 30 sonos speakers before you would need the boost. I will say that the Boost is great for working with VPN's. They say that it does help with bandwidth,

      Outside connections   (5 Answers)

      Has anyone been successful using Boost & wireless router (inside) to connect to outside Sonos Play 3 speaker? Approximate distance of 100-125'. Thank you

        if there is nothing between them - it might work. but if there is any interference, you;re getting close to the limit. Sonos told me when I was looking at them that 90-100ft was max. I used two of them which (but I'm using indoors with lots of walls) - if an option - might work.
