    Hi Heiner,

    Yes, your instructions work and I now have a standalone mode AP working on the Pi Zero W music player.
    However, a question, I understood that on the Pi3 and Pi Zero W, the WiFi chip could act as an AP and connect to a WiFi router at the same time.
    Is this the case and if so is it possible using the Max2Play plugin? (reason – one could then (when at a know Wifi Connection point) get internet radio. (obviously one would have to deselect the „standalone mode“).

    Hi Heiner,

    OK I will try your instructions and report back.

    As for uses for a Zero Wireless AP setup, I have 2

    The first can be seen from my write-up of a project here https://community.wd.com/t/will-wd-be-releasing-a-1tb-wd-node-zero-w/203662/3
    (If you want I can supply a copy of my project write-up for your site too)

    The second was for some friends I have who live in rural Ireland without access to the internet. They wanted to be able to have a
    Wireless router/ DHCP server, Access Point in their house so that they could connect up their modern electricals to see each other. I provided them with a Pi Zero and a Micro USB Wifi adaptor, installed Kodi/Libreelec and turned on the AP facility in that to provide an Access Point. This is working fine for them. A Pi Zero W would do this without having to have the USB WiFi adaptor. I prefer your web based Pi configuration capabilities and would like to do this using Max2Play.

    Hope this helps

    Fred.

    Hi Heiner
    In case I misunderstood,
    I have also tried the „Update2Beta Max2Play“
    Version Beta-170523
    Raspberry PI
    …….and this too does not solve the problem.

    Hmm!!
    When I run Settings/Reboot
    „Update MaxPlay“
    I get
    ——————————-
    Running Check for Plugin Updates and install if available
    Max2Play is up to date – no update required

    I found that updating the Kernel corrected this problem.
