Hi, I'm trying to set up a Sonos Beam, two Play:1s and a Sub as a 5.1 home theatre setup. I have a Cisco WLC 2504 connected to a Cisco Catalyst Switch 2960C, connected to four Access Points. I have the following settings:
- Broadcast Forwarding: Enabled
- AP Multicast: Multicast with 22.214.171.124 Multicast Group Address
- Global Multicast Mode: Enabled - IGMP Snooping: Enabled
- mDNS Global Snooping: Enabled
- mDNS Snooping Enabled with default-mdns-profile under WLANs, Advanced
- mDNS Snooping Enabled for all APs
I am able to connect to the Sonos Beam via the Sonos App and play music etc. I am able to set up the Play:1s in stereo with the Sub as a separate "room" in the Sonos app and play music over those. However, I am unable to set up the Play:1s as surrounds for the Beam, or the Sub for the Beam. The setup always fails at the stage "Preparing the speakers in this room to work together".
I have tried connecting all speakers to the same AP, but that didn't help. I have tried connecting the Beam to the Cisco Switch via Ethernet, but then I wan't able to connect to the Beam at all. I have tried contacting Sonos support, but they weren't able to help much.
I suspect that some setting in the WLC is preventing the speakers to properly communicate with eachother over the WLAN.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
you have a new project for a long time :-)
I have sons with my 2504 running.
disable p2p blocking and bring every sonos speaker with ethernet in your network.
Later you can change this to wireless.
