Default Sonosnet

What is the difference between Sonosnet v1 and v2? Does it make any difference if you mix v1 and v2 devices in the same network?

I ask because I have just installed 2 x S5 and a ZP90 all on SN2 and a ZP100 which I have just realised is SN1.

SonosNet 2.0 borrows certain technologies from 802.11n to extend range and resilience compared to 1.0.

You can mix and match 1.0 and 2.0 in a system. If two boxes can both communicate using 2.0 they will, otherwise they will use 1.0.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Will the SN1 device not prove a bottleneck as that is the one which bridges to the WiFi and hence my music library and the internet?

Morsleib,

Both versions of Sonosnet run at the same top speed. If conditions are poor, Sonosnet 2 offers better performance and increased range.

Not directly. SonosNet 2.0 isn't faster than 1.0; it simply has better range.

That said, if the first wireless hop from the ZoneBridge is struggling due to range/interference then bandwidth may be compromised somewhat. As long as the nearest ZonePlayer to the ZoneBridge is within range, using SonosNet 1.0 for that hop won't make any difference.
