First post here, and I am not very computer / pi / network literate.
Hopefully I have discovered something that once resolved may be of use to people.
Hardware is a Pi 3 version B, a piano 2.1 DAC and a Kali. Router is the BT Broadband hub 5, which is pretty common in the UK.
Hardware arrived at my work. Assembled, Image written to a SIM all as per the download guide. Pi disconnected and moved to the router, powered up and ethernet cable plugged in. Volumio visible on the router, address typed in on the command line and WIFI set up. All fine. Ethernet cable disconnected, Piano 2.1 player set up and a reboot carried out. Browsed and loaded spotify plugin and tested streaming. Browsed and tested web radios. All working perfectly connected to a pair of active Tannoys.
Took the Pi home, plugged it into my router, which is an identical BT hub although a home not a business one. Network setup works perfectly. I can change settings and restart from the UI,but I am unable to browse plugins, or web radio.
So between one location and another I have a problem. Both hubs identical pieces of hardware. Both are in a standard setup, nothing exotic has been done by way of IP or security settings. I took everything back to work, formatted the SIM. reinstalled and tried again. Same result. I then formatted again, but did the first boot and network connection at home. Still the same result.
I am guessing this is a network issue. Volumio is unable to communicate with the outside world at home, yet has no problem at all at work.
Anyone care to point me in the right direction as to where to look for the setting responsible? I have a feeling this is very simple.
Cheers - Chris.
