Hi Tmax,

To be honest I am not sure if this setting completely disables the onboard wifi or merely renames and moves it from wlan0 to wlan1. I believe it does the latter.

The setting in any event makes an exterior USB wifi stick the default wlan0. I have two different RPi-Max2Play setups and use USB wifi sticks (and this setting) on both. It made quite a difference in terms of signal connection strength – and in turn in listening enjoyment as well, particularly with larger FLAC files…
