Good Afternoon All,
I hate to be a “me too” but …
I’m using Volumio, the latest version, 2.657, Hot Spot disabled and I’ve been having a couple of network related problems with this, and an older version.
On a few occasions, if I leave the app paused while I go for lunch or similar, when I come back, it no longer responds in the browser. I see the following “problems”:
- I cannot get a response in the browser window;
- I cannot ping the (hard coded) IP address or hostname;
- I cannot ssh back onto the Pi;
- I cannot use the Android app to connect either;
- I have to crash the system out to regain control. This has corrupted a SD card and a full reinstall was required.
That’s a mildly irritating problem, especially when corruption occurs.
My other problem is caused when my router went down all by itself. That left the music playing - nice - but lost me my connection to the Pi again. Again, none of the above worked, and I had to crash t he Pi to regain control. No corruptions this time, thankfully.
I’m on Virgin and the main router is where the Pi connects to over WiFi. When the router crashed/hung or whatever happened, I lost all networking. My laptop did reconnect after the router reboot, but not the Pi. (Could be Pi related of course, not Volumio.)
And now, something useful. I remember writing a blog post on the Raspberry Pi 3, with built in WiFi, losing WiFi after a while, it’s here - qdosmsq.dunbar-it.co.uk/blog/201 … r-a-while/ and explains how to avoid that particular problem. Hope it helps someone.
My Hardware is:
HiFiBerry DAC+ with ADC.
Raspberry Pi 2B+ (Quad core) with official Raspberry Pi WiFi dongle and power supply.
I am too far away from my router to use a network lead and the Pi is running headless well away from monitors and free mains plugs.
