Disabling WiFi on Sonos players

Sonos moderators decided to silently delete/reject/whatever my post to their forums on how to disable the WiFi on their players, so here’s a post to help all of those seeking to disable WiFi on their players.

To disable, just issue the following HTTP GET in a web browser by pasting it into the location bar:

http://sonos-bedroom:1400/wifictrl?wifi=off

You may have to reboot, I don’t remember. It’s been a while since I did this to mine. Of course, replace “sonos-bedroom” with the IP or hostname of the Sonos player you want to control.

If you want to disable it and have it persist through reboots, issue:

http://sonos-bedroom:1400/wifictrl?wifi=persist-off

Here is the other form to turn on WiFi:

http://sonos-bedroom:1400/wifictrl?wifi=on

This helped me a lot in my condo where I have something like 30+ WiFi networks crowding up the spectrum. I hard-wired and disabled WiFi on most of my units to form the best network matrix (OFDM weak signal levels, inbound/outbound/noise floor dBm levels, etc). In combination with controlling the STP priorities carefully and everything seems pretty stable now, unlike before.
