First of all thanks to the team for making Volumio. It is a great music player, but unfortunately I am having some problems with it.
I hope somebody can help me with this or, if there is an existing thread that can help me with my problem, point me in the right direction.
My setup: Raspberry Pi modell B Rev. 2, 2A power supply for the pi, a powered USB hub for a LaCie 160gb external harddrive, Edimax 7811un wlan dongle plugged in the pi, Hifiberry DAC.
I am currently using Volumio beta1.11, but i have previously tried Raspyfi and the Volumio beta 1 and 1.1.
The problem: When I start the pi most of the time everthing works fine, but when I for example start a radio station and let it play it will most of the time stop playing after 20 minutes, sometimes earlier. When it has stopped I cannot ping the pi or SSH into it, but the Edimax dongle is still visible on Fing. Sometimes it reconnects after a few minutes and some attempts to ping it, sometime it does not come up at all and I have to restart the pi.
When I leave the pi in idle the connection seams to be more stable. When I play a playlist with music from the harddrive the music will keep playing after the connection drops, but I cannot control Volumio anymore.
What I have tried so far: I tried Raspyfi and all the beta versions of Volumio. I tried the fixes for the Edimax power saving function, including the cronjob pinping the router. I tried using a static IP. I checked the dhcp leasing time (it is set to10080 minutes).
I searched the web for similar problems but did not come up with much,so I hope you guys can help me. Let me know if you need more information.
