I cannot establish a wifi connection.
If I write the SSID and password manually I got an error message “Wifi USB adapter status is active. Wifi connection status is active (IP:no IP! No connection!)
If I scan the wifi networks mine is not displayed (my SSID is hidden), but I discover a estrange wifi named “/x00/x/00/x/00/x00”. I have tried to disable the hidden SSID and the result is the same. The scan doesn’t discover my wifi network.
I am using the RPi on board wifi adapter.
My DSL router doesn’t have the WPS option.
Has anybody experienced the same problems?
Thanks for your help.1. February 2017 at 18:34 #26548
This is what I did. I have entered the settings manually and I cannot connect to the network. I have also tested the hardware using Moode and there is no problem with the RPi 3 adapter and my wifi network.
Is it sure that max2play works fine with the on-board wifi adapter?7. February 2017 at 12:39 #26715
Sorry about the late response.
Yes, currently, we have multiple test devices running our newest version via WiFi and continually test new ones.
Have you tried out WPS? Here is a How-To on the feature: https://www.max2play.com/en/how-tos/how-to-wifi-configuration-with-wps-and-max2play/26. March 2017 at 13:59 #27856
let me pick up this thread again and ask for further help, because reinstalling all with a new image doesnt lead to success for me. Connecting an ethernet cable works fine, but that is not what i want. I assume, that there is a general problem with using the internal wifi apapter of the rpi3 board at all ?
I use a Sitecom and a Edimax standard wifi dongle, but both do not recognize my wifi during boot. Even when I tick “load wifi interface” my usb dongles dont get active during boot. I had that config working with dongle for a time, but without any reason, it does not work any longer ?
Switched to another rpi3 board and reinstalled (as mentioned above) the image several times new but no success till now.
Do I have to edit any configuration by console (bash) to get that to work again ?

There is no problem with the built-in WiFi on the Raspberry Pi 3, and our software is fully compatible with it, please make sure that WPS in enabled on your router, it take a little bit to connect to the WiFi via WPS when the device is booting.

I have exactly the same issue. My WLAN is not in the list after scanning and when I enter the data manually I get the same error message “Wifi USB adapter status is active. Wifi connection status is active (IP:no IP! No connection!)”.
My intention when I chose max2play was to avoid having to struggle with technical difficulties as I am a raspberry newbie. And now even the most basic stuff doesn’t work. I am very disappointed. 🙁
WPS doesn’t do anything.
Edit: I think I found the problem. The Raspberry PI doesn’t seem to support WiFi Channels 12&13. When I set my router to a different channel the SSID was detected and I was able to connect. So far I only tested this with piCoreplayer, I will test with Max2play this evening. I will also try to get the Raspi3 to work with channel 12&13 as these are the only channels that aren’t hoplessly overcrowed over here.3. April 2017 at 11:23 #27956
to be honest, activating WPS in my network for using rpi3 with max2play is not what I intended to do when choosing max2play (or better switching from SqueezeLite to max2play Interface).
@DonScovillo, but even when max2play is an almost all-in-one solution as alternate to the much more expensive paid solutions, you have to deal with the depths of a raspbian pi in the future… perhaps… hopefully not for you 😉
Thats what you pay for… or even not.
Nevertheless, I use this system since the first attempts from SqueezeLite years ago till now and having had lots of trouble but I like to deal with technical problems and when it works it is always a charme to use it in my whole house !! So defenitly an A+ for this system !
