Connected to Max2Play Accesspoint, I cannot see my airplay devices anymore. Even that on max2play.
I normally use hostapd with a bridge configured in etc/network/interfaces which is working well, but max2play uses iptable routing instead. So this is not the right way.
Maybe you can provide a simple solution to that way to get bridged mode also and bring that to plugin?
A configuration of band 2.4 or 5 GHz (e.g. for external wlan sticks) and maybe channel would also help.

If you configured the access point and the Shairport on the same device , there is no problem. access-point plugin and Shairport could work simultaneously, and if you setup the access-point plugin on one device and the shairport device on another one, make sure to check the „Standalone“ checkbox on the access-point.
And as I mentioned in the comments sections on our webpage, we could have the WLAN bridged mode feature in the future.

after reboot I could see that shairport device on m2p from my iphone 🙂
but not the other shairport-sync installations on my other raspians.
„Standalone“ seems not to be an option to my setup here at home, because I got problems on mounting nfs(lost my mp3 for MPD). So i will try to modify network/interface and add a bridge there.
Are you expecting any conflicts within m2p setup? Did not complete went throug this …
Need some workaround until m2p supports bridged mode …

Just for info:
meanwhile I tried to add a bridge to max2play manually like on raspian jessie:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet dhcp # WLAN # auto wlan0 # allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.2.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 auto br0 iface br0 inet dhcp bridge_ports eth0 wlan0 gateway 192.168.1.xxx
and adding the bridge to hostapd.conf:
# Bridge-Betrieb bridge=br0 # Ländercode country_code=DE interface=wlan0 ...
The result was somehow instable. After installation it was running fine, after reboot the problems started.
So I fear that I do not know enough of max2play architecture and its services an their startup mechanisms so far.
I suppose, that during startup some network configuration is done my max2play that will cause the problems, maybe …30. September 2020 at 13:32 #49769
Hey Mario, what I actually want is to extend my WiFi. The m2p raspberry is connected via ethernet to my router and I want to have a access point on the m2p raspberry which will add all connected devices to the same network. So the dhcp should be off at the raspberry and the up addresses should be assigned by the dhcp of the router.30. September 2020 at 14:22 #49775
This is not possible via our plugin. Perhaps this guide will help you to set up a wifi bridge manually:
