I’m setting up a Odroid C1+ with Hi-Fi shield to use in my car. I’m planning on using Volumio’s Hotspot mode and controlling it with the Android app on my smartphone. However, when the phone connects to the hotspot it displays a notification to “Sign in to Wif-Fi network”
When I tap on the notification it opens a window titled “Sign in to Volumio / connectivitycheck.gstatic.com” with the remainder of the window displaying the Volumio player app. If I tap on the three dots on the upper right of the screen I can select “Use this network as is” and the screen goes away.
If the Android Volumio app is already running before I do this, the app says that the phone is not connected to a Wi-Fi network:
If the app is started after I do the “fake sign in”, it finds Volumio and displays the player interface.
My concerns are: 1) Why does Android need to sign into the network when there are no credentials needed. BTW, MacOS also displays a sign in screen when it connects to a Volumio hotspot. 2) I don’t want to go through this process every time I want to connect to the hotspot.
