Unable to get Sonos speakers to work together over WLC 2504

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 239.255.255.250 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.

In the advanced SSID settings, do you maybe have enabled P2P Blocking Action?

What firmware is the WLC running on?

Hello,

 

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.
