    I just purchased a RaspPi3 Bundle with HiFiBerry Digi+.
    My Problem: I cannot connect to the Pi via Network. It is connected via LAN, but it does not show up in the list of network devices of my Fritz!Box.
    If I connect a monitor via HDMI, I can see that it starts up, and eventually I see a desktop. What I don´t see is anything about network configuration. The lights on the Pi´s LAN-port are flashing, when it´s turned on.
    I have downloaded the latest version of „Max2Play HiFiBerry Image“ with no effect.

    Any ideas what I can do to connect the Pi to my network?

    Hi Gerstel,
    Since you have a Pi3 and a Fritz.Box you might want to try the WPS feature. Just boot the Pi and simultaneously activate the WPS on your Fritz.Box.
    Of course, if you want a LAN-connection, that should usually work easily, too. All your steps seem correct and the LAN port blinking also indicates an active connection.
    Have you updated the system to 2.37? Have you tried typing http://max2play/ into some devices connected to your local network?

    I’m having a similar problem. I did manage to connect it to my WiFi network using WPS. But now I’m not able to see the UI come up on any of my devices when typing in http://max2play/ in the browser. Any idea what could be wrong?

    It´s getting worse!
    I tried to connect using WPS, and it seemed to work, at first. It took ages to assign an ip-address, but finally it got one. Strangely though, it was the same address as my first pi had, which is running for months without problems (I had two different devices with different MAC-addresses with the same IP-address in the list ?!?).
    I could access a web-frontend, I think it was the second ones, according to the version-number.
    After disconnecting the new pi though, I could not access my first pi anymore, even a restart did not help.

    Is it possible that there is a conflict between the two pi´s?

    @wouthermans: Please try typing in the IP address of your Pi (should be displayed in your router’s web interface) in the URL bar instead. Then try renaming your device in Settings/Reboot.

    : Usually the router should recognize the confusion and assign the new Pi with a new IP address. Have you since rebooted the Pi or observed any changes? Is it in fact possible that there is a conflict, however this is usually resolved by the router which assigns a new IP address to the new device.

    Thanks a lot Heiner, that worked! On a Windows laptop it already worked using http://max2play/, but now on my Mac it also works using the IP adress.

    Hello again,
    it´s been a while since my last post.
    I finally got it done. I had to set up both pi´s from scratch, now it works.
    Don´t know why it didn´t work before…

    Thanks for the help anyway.

    Hi tung,

    M2P does not automatically create static IP’s its only an option for a LAN connected device to have one.

    To access the web interface, either enter „max2play/“ or the IP without the port (:9000) in your browser. So just „“
