The Sonos System wireless specs say not to use 802.11 N networks because it interferes with the Sonos mesh net. My question is does anybody have experience using 2nd Gen Airport Express network with Sonos.

 

I currently have my Airport Express advanced>wireless set to 802.11n (802.11b/g compatible).  I am having connection problems however the 2nd Gen Airports don't give an option to not use 802.11N

    To access the additional radio modes available to your AirPort Express base station, just hold down the Option key BEFORE making a mode selection in the AirPort Utility. One choice would be: 802.11a - 802.11b/g

    Question for the Tesserax user:

     

    I have an Apple wireless system,  an Airport extreme with 2 airport express connected to my Stereos. The all the airports deciveses  are 4 years old. The system is very unstable. Should I upgrade the Airports(the extreme and the 2 expresses) or ....should I replace it wit a Sonos System.

    Unfortunately I don't have much experience with the Sonos systems to offer any advice on, whether or not, it would be a better option than using the AirPorts ... even newer ones.

     

    If you system has always been flaky, it may be due to limited bandwidth or excessive signal noise that is preventing AirPlay from streaming over a "clean" wireless network and not actually the AirPort hardware. If this is the case, then replacing the AirPorts would serve no real value.
