Sonos BRIDGE The BRIDGE is an accessory that plugs into your home router to create a dedicated wireless network exclusively for your Sonos system—providing you with reliable wireless performance no matter how large your home or how many WiFi devices you use. When Should I Use a BRIDGE? • If your WiFi network is already in high demand with streaming video, gaming, and web surfing, connect a BRIDGE to your router to establish a separate wireless network exclusively for your Sonos speakers. • If you want to strengthen the wireless performance of your Sonos system, connect a BRIDGE to extend wireless coverage to all of the rooms where you want music. New to Sonos? It takes just a few steps to get your Sonos system up and running (the steps below are fully explained in the QuickStart Guide packaged with your BRIDGE) — • Connect the BRIDGE to your router using an Ethernet cable (supplied). • Place other Sonos products in the room of your choice. • Download and install the Sonos app and then follow the prompts to set up your Sonos system. Once you’ve set up your music system, you can add additional Sonos products any time. Adding to an existing Sonos system? Sonos can be easily expanded room by room. If you are adding this BRIDGE to an existing Sonos music system, you can turn directly to "Adding to an Existing Sonos System" on page 3.

2 Product Guide Your Home Network 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: Home network requirements Note: Your network must have a high-speed Internet connection, as the Sonos system is designed to provide you with free, online software updates. Your Sonos system must be registered to receive these updates so be sure to register during the setup process. We do not share your e-mail address with other companies. • 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 fluctuating 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 do not have a router, purchase and install one before proceeding. If you are going to use the Sonos Controller App on an Android™ or iOS device, or you are setting up Sonos wirelessly, you will need a wireless router. Please visit our website at http://faq.sonos.com/apps for more information. Note: Sonos communicates over a 2.4GHz home network supporting 802.11 b/g wireless technology. 5GHz networks are not supported in a completely wireless Sonos setup. • Connect a Sonos BRIDGE, BOOST™ or player to your router if: • You have a larger home where the WiFi performance isn’t reliable and you want to strengthen the wireless performance of your Sonos system. • Your WiFi network is already in high demand with streaming video and web surfing and you want to create a separate wireless network exclusively for your Sonos speakers. • Your home network is 5GHz only (not switchable to 2.4GHz). • 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. System requirements • Windows® XP SP3 and higher • Macintosh® OS X 10.7 and higher • Compatible with iPhone®, iPod touch®, and iPad® devices running iOS 6.0 or later, certain features require higher versions of iOS • Android 2.2 and higher, certain features require higher versions of Android Note: For the latest system requirements, including supported operating system versions, please visit our website at http://faq.sonos.com/specs.

Sonos BRIDGE 3 Adding to an Existing Sonos System Once you’ve got a Sonos system set up, you can easily add more Sonos products any time (up to 32 rooms). Note: If you purchased a Sonos BRIDGE to replace a Sonos product that is currently attached to your router, be sure to add the BRIDGE to your Sonos system (see steps below) before unplugging and moving the originally wired Sonos speaker. 1. Attach the power adapter and plug in the Sonos BRIDGE. 2. Choose one of the following options: • Select Add a BRIDGE or BOOST from the Manage menu on a Mac or PC. • Select Add a BRIDGE or BOOST from the Settings menu on a handheld controller. During the setup process, you will be prompted to press and release the Join button on the side of the Sonos BRIDGE. You may be prompted to update the rest of your Sonos system during this process. A BRIDGE will not display on your ROOMS pane after it is set up. If you wish to change the settings for this product, choose one of the following: • Using the Sonos Controller for PC: Select Manage -> Settings -> BRIDGE Settings. • Using the Sonos Controller for Mac: Select Sonos -> Preferences -> BRIDGE Settings. • Using a handheld Sonos controller: Select Settings -> BRIDGE Settings.

Sonos product(s) not detected during setup • Check to make sure the power cord is properly seated. • A network issue may be preventing the product from connecting to your Sonos system. If this is a wireless Sonos product, try moving the Sonos products closer together, or use an Ethernet cable to hard wire the product to your router temporarily to see if the problem is related to wireless interference. If you encounter this message while a Sonos product is connected to your router, you can try the steps below to resolve this issue. If you are still experiencing problems, please contact Sonos Customer Support.

Sonos BRIDGE 7 1. Check the firewall Firewall software installed on the computer may be blocking the ports that Sonos uses to operate. First, disable all your firewalls and try to connect again. If this resolves the problem, you should configure your firewall to work with the Sonos Controller for Mac or PC. Please go to our website at http://faq.sonos.com/firewall for additional information. If this does not resolve the problem, you can try step 2 below. 2. Check the router You can bypass your router’s switch to determine whether there are any router configuration issues by connecting a Sonos product as shown below—in this BRIDGE configuration example, note that the BRIDGE and the computer still have Internet access: • Be sure that your cable/DSL modem is connected to the router’s WAN (Internet) port. • Temporarily remove any other components that are wired to your network. • Connect an Ethernet cable from the computer directly to the back of the BRIDGE, and then connect another Ethernet cable from that Sonos product directly to one of the LAN ports on your router. • When you make a change to your network configuration, you may need to power cycle the Sonos product by unplugging the power cord, and then plugging it back in. 3. Check the wiring Check the indicator lights on both the router and the Sonos product. The link/status lights should be lit solid, and the activity lights on the router should be blinking. • If the link lights are not lit, try connecting to a different port on your router. • If the link lights still do not light, try connecting a different Ethernet cable. Sonos player is not operating properly • If the status indicator is not lit and no sound is produced when the unit is plugged in, check to ensure the power cord is properly seated. • If the status indicator is solid white, make sure the volume is set to a suitable level; make sure MUTE is not on; if CONNECT:AMP™, make sure external speakers are connected securely.

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.

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.
