I’ve just installed volumio 1.1 and everything seems to work in eth environment but when I try to turn it into wifi something strange happens.
the webgui shows no wlan0 interface name and no ip (my dhcp works), I’ve tried some manual configs from shell and editing conf files:
if I setup wlan0 with
iwconfig wlan0 essid MYSSID key MYKEY ifconfig wlan0 up
it gives an error about the key command but it connects without problems and everything works from wifi (it connects, take ip and I can use webgui and ssh on the wifi ip) but still no infos about wlan connection on the webgui.
if I now disconnect the eth cable even wifi stops working.
if I reboot no wifi connection is established, I have to reconnect on eth and issue the command iwconfig wlan0 essid MYSSID to restart the connection.
I think it can depend on the fact the AP (using wpa2) is not broadcasting the ssid (imperative for me) so tried this configuration:
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
saved, reboot and still no auto wifi connection.
my setup will only be useful in wifi mode so I need to manage it to work, do you know what can I try to make wlan0 connect at startup?
thank you very much!
