Thanks for pointing me to that thread. I didn’t find it when I was searching the forum. I don’t need to connect to the access point, I just want the whole little package to work on its own, server, player and music library on the USB drive accessed at the touchscreen. And, it all works, but only if I am connected to a network, which is not available where I want to use it, a shed at the bottom of the garden with no ethernet and out of range of the wifi.
I have done a couple of things mentioned in the thread, restarting/installing Jivelite and Squeezelite, with no change (I don’t really understand why I need both).
