just dug my Pi B out of the cupboard and decided to try this Volumio thing - it looks so simple and will stream my network music to my stereo…
Problems I have so far are:
I can never connect via a browser using volumio.local until I have first established a connection via SSH (Putty). Not very practical to do every time I turn it on to listen to some music.
The WiFI dongle refuses to work. As soon as I add it, or boot with it in (without the ethernet cable) I get nothing at all. Volumio doesn’t load up and I can’t even SSH into it.
As soon as I connect the ethernet cable - voila, all is happy again.
I’ve done LOTS of reading of all the handy forums and guides suggesing how to edit various /etc/network/interfaces files but none of my attempts have solved the useless wifi problem.
Any guidance or advice gratefully accepted.
Like every other Pi project I’ve had a go at, it hasn’t worked ‘out of the box’ and feels like more trouble than it’s actually worth, in terms of man-hours invested! Still, I guess that’s the definition of a ‘hobby’!
Awaiting with bated breath…
Thanks in advance.
