Title basically says it all:
I want to connect to the squeezserver via wifi without having access to my internet router.
Carrying the raspi and a usb drive along with some power source is simple.
The idea is to have full access to my music using e.g. squeezer on my phone even when I’m away from home.
Can I configure max2play to serve as a wifi source, if that’s what I need?

Yes, you can use our Access Point Setup Plugin. After installing the LMS (internet required), you can set up the Pi as an active access point that you can connect to on the go from your smartphone. Here’s an Instructable we made on the topic.13. Juli 2018 at 17:29 #36582
Thanks again. It seems to be installed and I can see it from my Smartphone (Moto 5G) with the SSID I had entered. But when I try to connect with Squeezer the connection is being established but after 2-3 seconds it goes into a re-connect cycle..
Edit: I have now changed the accesspoint settings to
– WiFi Driver nl80211
– Mode Standalone
Now I can establish a stable connection (with a warning about the (obviously) missing internet connection.
Unfortunately now squeezer can’t connect..
I think I got it to work now, that is the access point can be seen and logged onto from squeezer.
I set the access point to ‚Standalone‘ and disconnected the LAN cable.
Squeezer is set up to expect DHCP and no proxy.
The connection is not very stable though and I need to reconnect after every few minutes.
