For additional information, go to http://faq.sonos.com/updateerror. Caution: Do not disconnect power from your Sonos products, or in any way disable your Sonos system while this process is running. Contact Sonos Customer Support if an error occurs. Basic Troubleshooting Warning: Do not open a device as there is a risk of electric shock. Under no circumstances should the product be repaired by anyone other than an authorized Sonos repair center, as this will invalidate the warranty. Please contact Sonos Customer Support for more information. If a problem occurs, you can try the troubleshooting suggestions listed below. If one of these doesn’t remedy the problem, or you are not sure how to proceed, please contact the Sonos Customer Support team and we’ll be happy to help. Reset the Sonos CONTROL If the Sonos CONTROL’s screen should ever become unresponsive, you can remove the battery from the back of the unit, and then immediately put it back in. Place the CONTROL into the charging cradle for a few moments to wake it up. Restart the Sonos CONTROL There may be an occasion when you need to renew your DHCP lease (get a new IP address from your Internet provider's DHCP server.) If this occurs, you can restart your CONTROL by selecting Controller Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Restart Controller from the Settings menu. Can’t add the Sonos CONTROL to your Sonos system 1. Turn off any 2.4GHz cordless phones. Some 2.4GHz cordless telephones can cause wireless interference. If turning off your 2.4GHz cordless phone resolves the problem, you should consider switching to a 5.8Ghz or 900Mhz phone (or change the wireless channel your Sonos system is operating on). 2. Put 108 Mbps wireless routers into 54 Mbps mode. Sonos cannot function properly when a router is operating in turbo mode. To double the speed from 54 Mbps to 108 Mbps, the router goes into a wide bandwidth mode which uses most of the 2.4 GHz spectrum that the FCC has set aside for 802.11b/g devices. This means that interference (RF noise) will occur with any other 2.4 GHz device that is not operating on
20 Product Guide the same channel as the 108 Mbps device (usually channel 6). While it is possible to put all of your wireless devices on channel 6, it is unwise. The devices will have to compete for available bandwidth, and your entire wireless network will become sluggish. 3. Change the wireless channel your Sonos system is operating on.

22 Product Guide Regulation Information USA This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: • All Sonos devices have in-products antennas. Users cannot reorient or relocate the receiving antenna without modifying the product • Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. • Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. Caution: Modifications not expressly approved by the manufacturer may void the user's authority to operate the equipment under FCC rules. The device for operation in the band 5150-5250 MHz is only for indoor use to reduce the potential for harmful interference to co-channel mobile satellite systems. Canada This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003 and RSS-210. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device. The installer of this radio equipment must ensure that the product is located such that it does not emit RF field in excess of Health Canada limits for the general population; consult Safety Code 6, obtainable from Health Canada’s website www.hc-sc.gc.ca/rpb. As mentioned before, the installer cannot control the antenna orientation. However, they could place the complete product in a way that causes the problem mentioned above. The device for operation in the band 5150-5250 MHz is only for indoor use to reduce the potential for harmful interference to co-channel mobile satellite systems. Be advised that high-power radars are allocated as primary users (i.e. priority users) of the bands 5250-5350 MHz and 5650- 5850 MHz and that these radars could cause interference and/or damage to LE-LAN devices. Canada Cet appareil numérique de classe B est conforme aux normes NMB-003 et CNR-210 en vigueur au Canada. Son fonctionnement est soumis aux deux conditions suivantes : (1) Cet appareil ne doit pas créer d'interférences nuisibles. (2) Cet appareil doit tolérer toutes les interférences reçues, y compris les interférences pouvant entraîner un fonctionnement indésirable. L'installateur du présent matériel radio doit veiller à ce que le produit soit placé ou orienté de manière à n'émettre aucun champ radioélectrique supérieur aux limites fixées pour le grand public par le ministère fédéral Santé Canada ; consultez le Code de sécurité 6 sur le site Web de Santé Canada à l'adresse : www.hc-sc.gc.ca/rpb. Comme indiqué auparavant, l'installateur ne peut pas contrôler l'orientation de l'antenne. Il peut néanmoins placer le produit tout entier de manière à provoquer le problème décrit ci-dessus.

SonosNet is the propriety wireless mesh network architecture designed to provide robust transmission of high fidelity streaming digital music. All Sonos players within the SonosNet mesh network act as both a client and access point simultaneously. Each Sonos player expands the range of SonosNet mesh network because while each device must be within range of at least one other Sonos player, they do not need to be within range of a central access point. In addition to extending the range between Sonos products, SonosNet can extend the range of other data networking devices within the home, such as Android devices directly connected to SonosNet. Due to the high network availability requirements of the SonosNet mesh network, Sonos players do not have a standby or off mode other than removing the power cord from the AC mains. RF Exposure Requirements To comply with FCC and Industry Canada exposure essential requirements, a minimum separation distance of 20cm (8 inches) is required between the equipment and the body of the user or nearby persons.
