Hi , recently I was trying to set up my surround Wi-Fi for my home using Sonos . But it’s not grouping all the products at same time , when future research with Sonos customer support learnt that
By default, Ruckus access points convert multicast/broadcast traffic to unicast traffic, which disrupts expected Sonos behavior. Sonos requires multicast and broadcast traffic (Multicast is a one-to-many streaming over IP method similar to traditional broadcast.) to be passed normally. Please check this information to Ruckus to allow the access points to pass multicast and broadcast traffic full time.
please help how to change this configuration

Please find the below article which explains how the multicast is treated in Ruckus APs.
You need to use the below commands on the Master (Unleashed)\Controller to allow the multicast traffic to pass as multicast.
ruckus(config)# wlan hotspot
The WLAN service 'hotspot' has been loaded. To save the WLAN service, type 'end' or 'exit'.
ruckus(config-wlan)# no qos directed-multicast
ruckus(config-wlan)# no qos igmp-snooping

Thank you for reaching out to us via FORUM.
In the unleashed setup, we could also use the following commands to regulate Multicast in the network:
ruckus(ap-mode)# get wlanlist
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos eth0 directed multicast disable
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos eth1 directed multicast disable
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos eth0 igmp disa
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos eth1 igmp disa
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos eth0 classification disa
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos eth1 classification disa
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos wlan1 directed multicast disable
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos wlan1 igmp disable
ruckus(ap-mode)# set directed-thr wlan1 0
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos wlan33 directed multicast disable
ruckus(ap-mode)# set qos wlan33 igmp disable
ruckus(ap-mode)# set directed-thr wlan33 0
NOTE:: wlan# can be found from command 'get wlanlist'.
Please keep us posted if this worked out for you. Looking forward to your response.
