    I've changed all hit one lamp to have the sonoff basic WiFi switches.

    One lamp has a earth as well. Can I connect these with N and L and leave earth unconnected?

    So you want to remove that push switch and fit the sonoff device in its place? Is there no earth terminal inside the Sonoff, if not then the earth will need to be carried through somehow to the lamp, the cable has an earth in it for a reason, probably because the lamp needs earthing.

    How you do it though is up to you, I suppose the earth could run round the outside of the Sonoff as long as the black sheath of the cable remains under the cord grips of the covers so you can't see any brown or blue, a bit like how they have done the push switch but on the outside.

    I've sonnof on two bedside lamps with earths. 3 core with the earth run through , soldered and heat shrink. It's dam tight but doable
