About the Sonos® BRIDGE
The Sonos BRIDGE is an easy, cost-effective way to expand your Sonos Music System. This tiny device connects to your router, allowing you to use any of your Sonos music players wirelessly, anywhere in your home. By creating a dedicated wireless network for Sonos, it offers more stable performance than using a Wi-Fi® connection for your Sonos speakers. It's a great way to ensure you can enjoy more music in more rooms throughout your home.
Improve the range of your Sonos system
The Bridge also lets you extend the range of your Sonos system. Just place a Bridge between a player in your system and the new area where you'd like to listen, such as a detached garage, for example. Or enjoy your music on outdoor speakers — easily control a player located indoors from your pool on the far side of your yard.
Expand your Sonos system
You can have up to 32 Sonos music players in your system, and each one can play an independent selection of individual tracks or playlists. Listen to jazz in the den while your spouse plays rock music in the kitchen, or pump a single playlist of songs throughout the entire house during a party.

Overview: The Sonos Bridge is used to connect a Sonos Digital Music System to your home network or to extend the wireless range of your existing Sonos Digital Music System. The Sonos Bridge makes setting up your wireless Sonos system fast and easy by simply connecting the Bridge to your router to instantly activate SonosNet (a secure wireless mesh network). All your Sonos players (Connect, Connect:Amp, Play:3, Play:5, and Play:1) will work wirelessly and can be placed anywhere in your home. Although the Bridge doesn't play music like a Sonos player, it's an effective way to extend the range of your Sonos system and expand the Controller's wireless coverage. It's also a way to connect other products to the Internet.
Note: This unit is not a stand-alone device and requires at least one Sonos player (Connect, Connect:Amp, Play:3, Play:5, or Play:1 device)
Instant Wired/Wireless Setup: The Bridge connects to your router using a standard Ethernet cable connection (2-port switch, 10/100Mbps, auto MDI/MDIX). Then, a simple press of the button located on top of the Bridge will start SonosNet, a secure AES encrypted, peer-to-peer wireless mesh network that enables other Sonos products to control and play music wirelessly.
System Flexibility: Once you've set up your Bridge, you can easily add components anytime. If your home has structured (built-in) wiring, you can make a wired connection to additional Sonos players or Bridges. If you don't have structured wiring, you can take advantage of Sonos' built-in wireless technology. The Bridge provides flexibility to place your Sonos players in any room of the house and connect them all wirelessly.
Ethernet Ports: The Bridge has two Ethernet jacks on the back to bring standard Internet connectivity to your set-top box, PC, Game Console or NAS drive.
Range Expansion: You can stream music wirelessly to a remote location by placing a Bridge between your Sonos player in a remote location and the rest of your Sonos system. You can also improve Controller access to SonosNet by placing the Bridge in areas where wireless coverage needs a boost. The Bridge is ideal for retrofits, where your Sonos players might be in one location instead of being placed throughout your home.
Home Network Requirements: To access Internet music services, Internet radio, and any digital music stored on your computer or Network-Attached Storage (NAS) device, your home network must meet the following requirements:
- High-speed DSL/Cable modem, or fiber-to-the-home broadband connection for proper playback of Internet-based music services. If your Internet service provider only offers Satellite Internet access, you may experience playback issues due to fluctuation in download rates.
- If your modem is not a modem/router combination and you want to take
advantage of Sonos' automatic online updates, or stream music from an
Internet-based music service, you must install a router in your home
network. If you don't have a router, you will need to purchase and install
one before setting up your system.
- If you are going to use a Sonos controller application on an Android smartphone, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or other tablet, you may need a wireless router in your home network.
- Connect at least one Sonos component to your home network router using an Ethernet cable, and then you can add other Sonos components wirelessly.
- For best results, you should connect the computer or NAS drive that contains your personal music library collection to your home network router using an Ethernet cable.
