Does anyone successfully use Sonos on TCL? I have bought a Sonos system, but because you have to manually enter  your DNS settings before you can connect it to the box, I can't connect it! (It connects to my wireless network, but can't 'see' the net) Any ideas or suggestions would be VERY gratefully received ;-)

Well after googling sonos it just looks to be a media box with wifi ability (and quite flash at that!).

Cant think why you should have any particular issues with any ISP.

Have you tried reading the documentation on their website (and their forums)?

Quite often you can set up your modem/router to have a default DNS server - perhaps you could start there.
If it doesnt have a DNS server then maybe thats all it needs.

skl17: ... because you have to manually enter  your DNS settings before you can connect it to the box, I can't connect it!

Are you sure you have to manually configure this box? Can't you just get automatic settings from your router? And as posted above, most routers (if not all) allow you to define the DNS, so any device connecting to it will automatically use the router settings.

Check your router configuration first, I'd say.
