I don’t recall having any issues in the past with a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B but I have since re-purposed that and am trying to set up M2P on some Raspberry Pi 3+ Model A and I cannot get it to save the WiFi config. I connect to it via it’s AP mode, connect to it’s IP directly (192.168.189.1) as DNSMasq does not seem to provide an IP for the suggested http://max2play address but every option I attempt to change to the wireless settings results in it coming back up with a failure (Incomplete, deleting file). I’ve tried setting the WiFi via wpa_supplicant.conf, via raspi-config but it still does not want to connect. I also tried using it’s loopback and configuring it with a keyboard and mouse connected to a screen and still achieve the same results (except one time it saved for no apparently different reason but I was unable to replicate).
The message in the web GUI is:
Setup WiFi Started 2019-03-29 13:29:05| Device "eth0" does not exist. Disable Accesspoint ifdown: interface wlan0 not configured 0 OK OK OK OK OK OK No IP-Address could be received - WiFi NOT working correctly. Please check Network-ID and Passphrase! ifdown: ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0 OK OK WiFi detected Restarting hostapd (via systemctl): hostapd.service. Restarting dnsmasq (via systemctl): dnsmasq.service. Finished Please Click here Reload Page!
I checked my WiFi logs and for some reason it seems to not be connecting and generating some weird traffic in the process:

Despite the GUI logs saying it can’t get an IP address, no requests are hitting the DHCP service on my network (Except for the one time).
I don’t know if this is a RPi 3+ thing or a M2P thing causing my issue but I also noted that the script M2P is using is using the now depreciated ifdown ifup commands.11. Juni 2019 at 2:42 #45645
After some more investigation it seems the scripts are not running correctly.
If I manually run the script /var/www/max2play/application/plugins/accesspoint/scripts/uninstall_accesspoint.sh it removes the AP mode and upon rebooting I can manually enter the WiFi details and have it connect. The problem I am now having is that they do not seem to be applying for all other settings too so I cannot apply settings under Rasberry Settings such as the sound card, CPU/GPU, Bluetooth, etc.
The same thing occurs with all other settings. After about 3 attempts it decided to take a static IP change that persisted after a reboot but I have no idea why these aren’t running. Apache is running as root so there should be no permissions reason these scripts aren’t running.
Any suggestions?12. Juni 2019 at 10:15 #45675
Thanks for sharing this issue in such detail. I will try to recreate it and discuss it with our head developer.
