Change your Sonos system’s wireless channel

This article will show you how to change your Sonos system’s wireless channel.

The SonosNet Channel setting is available while you have at least one Sonos product wired to your network with an Ethernet cable. If all your Sonos products connect to your Wi-Fi network, the SonosNet Channel will appear grayed-out in the Sonos app and cannot be changed.


iOS or Android

  1. From the  Settings tab, select System > Network > SonosNet Channel.
  2. Change the wireless channel to 1, 6, or 11.

Changing the wireless channel is a troubleshooting step in reducing wireless interference. If you’re changing the wireless channel to solve a problem, try using your Sonos system on each of the three channels to find which one performs best. We recommend using Sonos on a wireless channel that is not being used by your wireless router.
