Sonos Inconsistent no matter what I do

I have a small office with 3 IAP-305 controlled by aruba Central. When we dont use any airgroups the devices are added to the Iphone app. But when trying to play music things are very inconsistant. Sometimes the music will start playing 30 seconds of a song then change, the app becomes un-responsive and wont controll the devices, etc (Spotify, Pandora or locally downloaded to Iphone). When i enabled airgroups (and I've created a spotify airgroup enabling pretty much everything i could find in these groups, things work for a while. Then randomly 1 phone can see a few devices and others cannot.

 

Any help would be awesome.

Re: Sonos Inconsistent no matter what I do

Try it without Airgroup and no broadcast filtering on that SSID.

Re: Sonos Inconsistent no matter what I do

I created a new group with that configuration and still inconsistent. I was trying to create a group with different rooms, the app said it couldnt connect and now one of the rooms doesnt show up.

 

There is nothing worse then a network that drops traffic and doesnt show you. is there a way other than 'show airgroup blocked-xx' that would show me whats being dropped? Very frustrating how something like this could be so complicated.
