Hello Heiner, this may not apply directly to this subject, but: I need to know how the web interface works? Specifically why when I type http://max2play into my ULR bar, after downloading the max2play with raspeberry pi and Hifiberry dac pro image to my raspberry, I get no response, my browser informs me that is cannot connect. What am I missing?14. December 2016 at 14:59 #24873
Please take a look at our Getting Started Guide for basic guidelines on setting up Max2Play: https://www.max2play.com/en/getting-started/
Also, check out our Wiki for more specific help: https://www.max2play.com/en/wiki
If you cannot access the web interface, please check your router’s web interface to find the IP and name of the Max2Play device or directly access it from there.14. December 2016 at 19:39 #24896
Thnk you Heiner,
I have gone through the steps as mentioned, I am not seeing my pi on the router, question, forgive my ignorance, but does the pi3 have to be connected via physically Wired Ethernet cord to my router access point, as i thought that the pi3 was wifi? I have not connected it.Could this be the issue?14. December 2016 at 23:38 #24897
OK all is corrected, I was able to access the web interface via an ethernet connection. However, am i correct in my assessment that Max2Play is not compatible with the onboard wifi config on the pi3!!? Now I have to purchase wifi usb in order to connect to my pi3/ hifiberry dac pro?15.

No, Max2Play supports WPS from the first boot. If your router has a WPS button, you can use it to connect your Pi. You can also just configure the WiFi on the web interface when you’re connected through LAN, reboot and remove the LAN cable. Here is a HowTo on WPS: https://www.max2play.com/howtos/howto-wlan-einrichtung-mit-wps-und-max2play/
And here is a video on the WiFi menu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsEBb_CIJ5A26. December 2016 at 20:28 #25239
Unfortunately, your video even states that max2play needs an usb wifi connection for wps. Pi3 has an wifi built in. max2play is not even recognizing the pi3 wifi, nor my network options, intructions are unclear as to how one is to reboot max2play and remove the lan connection while attempting to connect with the WPS button. I have tried too many times to count. I get this message:
Status: WiFi USB adapter status is not active. WiFi connection status is active (IP: NO IP! No connection!)

Based on your response to help me with my wifi connection maybe you did not understand my request: I have a pi3, with on-board wifi capabilities, that is why i purchased it. Your video states a need to purchase a wifi usb adapter. Why cannot I use the onboard wifi on my pi3?Help, maybe I am not following here?
This may be the problem: Your installed HiFiBerry Card: Hifi Berry Dac+ Pro (B+/Pi2) there is no option given for the Pi3, therefore I assume that M2P is not yet compatible with the features of the Pi3 WIFI, or possibly all the features of the Pi3?

Hi, Update: I decided to do a complete re-write and reset up of the image file from M2P. After reload and reboot on my pi before I did anything else I WPS on my router and it found the RPi 3 Right away! Then it was able to get on your server wirelessly. Thanks for your patience.
Now I need to learn how to get my music share off my pc to mount.27. December 2016 at 20:30 #25267
Probably there was an old M2P-version on zhe raspi
Mount Network-Devices seems to me very simple in the actually M2P-version
On the top you see “filesystem mount” (or something like that. I use the german webinerface)
Then click on “show network devices” and then “set path” for the device aou want
But the disadvantage is that aour pc must run. Why not plug an 2,5″ harddrive at the Raspi?
