G’day guys and girls,
I’ve been reading through this forum and posts about Wifi being a major pain in the bum-bum to install, and, well, it is, so, I’m looking for some guidance.
I installed Volumio 2.latest on an SD card for a Pi3. Bootup and wired network work pretty well, but my main use is through a Wifi network in the main listening area. I don’t have access to a Wifi dongle at the moment, and, I know Wifi works because I’ve been using the “other” audio player for months without issues.
At the moment, my Pi3 is working with a wired network, all static addresses, and mounting an NFS share was a breeze. I’m still to connect the DAC (an Amanero USB based board), but first I need to solve the Wifi issue.
Volumio seems to recognize the Wifi network, and store the static IP address. Whenever I’m wired, I can ping both wired and wireless addresses. The moment I unplug the Ethernet cable, I get nothing on both networks. On reboot, I get the wired network interface, but never the wireless. I’ve tried changing /etc/network/interfaces to no avail. I’m running the latest Volumio image downloaded yesterday on a RPi3.
Any ideas? Has anyone managed to get it all working nice and easy (or at least nice) so far? Happy to provide more information or run a few experiments.
