Introduction

While setting up your Sonos Speakers initially is pretty easy, the thought of switching networks with them can be pretty daunting since there are more menus to go through. If you replaced a broken router, upgraded to a new one, or just had an issue with your internet that caused your Sonos to lose connection, you'll need to access those menus to reconnect your Sonos speakers to your network.
Luckily, we can easily help you find your way through the Sonos Controller App and get your tunes playing on your network again.
