Thank you for the update. I'll keep an eye on the new releases as I continue to learn Linux commands.

The substance of this thread is a long time out of date. Don't alter /etc/network/devices.

192.168.211.1 is the IP address of the volumio hotspot. Connect to this initially, if necessary, but then disable and setup your own wifi network through the Volumio UI

I did this and can see many networks from my neighbours and yet cannot see my own home networks. BTW it works fine on Lan but not on wi-fi!? Any clues?

Thanks from a newbie. :?:

Firstly some details ... what is your device, Volumio version, & wifi adapter? Is the installation a fresh flash or an update of an earlier version? Can you see your home wifi on your phone?

Doh!
:roll:

Sorry about that. I have a Netgear r7000 router which broadcasts on 2g and 5g which is visible on all devices. I have set permissions for the Lan but the WiFi just does not show up to log into. I have also set permissions for all new stuff to be able to hook up without passwords (temporarily) and still no go. Weird!!! This on 3 raspberry pi 3 b with usb out or with hifiberry DAC plus gpio card. Also used updated as well as original 2.141, 2.163, 2.175 and 2.185 versions. Hope that is enough - please let me know if not.

Thanks

Keith

Btw also tried​ hotspot with 192.168.211.1 and I can see the raspberry s but I still can't find my networks even that way.

Is it because your router is not broadcasting the ssid address? If so, you should be able to manually add your wifi name & details.

The router is broadcasting the ssid
I also tried to manually add and still no go. Very confusing :?

I'm still not clear on your setup here, bear with me while I try to get things straight ...

..router which broadcasts on 2g and 5g which is visible on all devices.

presumably mobiles, tablets etc??

This on 3 raspberry pi 3 b with usb out or with hifiberry DAC plus gpio card.

You are running 3 RPi3s ....do any of them see your network? Are they all using the internal wifi? What OS is running on each of them?

Btw also tried​ hotspot with 192.168.211.1 and I can see the raspberry s but I still can't find my networks even that way.

What exactly do you mean by "can see the raspberry s"?

Weird one this one as I can now see my router and I have not changed any settings on it. I'm confused but at least seems to now be working. :?: I think it might be something to do with amount of items to discover as per my other thread.
