[quote=“andybob, post:1, topic:8306”]There are also good reports from people using WiFi dongles with the boards configured on Linux distros.[/quote]I’ve had great results using a Panda Wireless PAU06 300Mbps N USB Adapter to create a wireless server for my folks using a Microserver running Ubuntu Server hooked up via USB to a NuPrime IDA-8.
Great signal and trouble free networking … should work with any current Linux install.
Adding WiFi would either necessitate opening up the image for login so it can be configured, or adding some webbased config option. I can imagine either will take a while, since the image is still in Release Candidate status.
BTW: a friend of mine has great succes with his PiDacs (one on NAA, one one PiCorePlayer). An Airport Express (starting from the N-generation) makes a fine wireless bridge to the Pi’s ethernet connector.
Received one of @Gordon_Garrity’s PiDAC+'s (with the very nice case) last week. Bought it mainly for toying around, but it sounds way too sweet for that: it has replaced the iDSD nano / HQP combo in my headphone setup. Well done, sir.
In installed it on a Pi 3, which is – to my surprise – behaving very nicely on WiFi. Just install it the usual way and you’ll be fine.
Added bonus for me is that I can easily adjust left/right volume settings with amixer, compensating for a slight lack of hearing in my right ear. Using headphones, this is rather important to me.
I have tried enabling wifi on both RC3v and RC4 following Renes instructions from elsewhere on this site ( editing the supplicant file )…seems to have taken but wont show up as a Roon endpoint when I disconnect the ethernet cable…as a Raspberry ultra newbie its hard to work out what is going on ( or not) from the Command line screen…any thoughts? Sounds great via the ethernet connection but thats not as convenient for an endpoint
New to the linux world myself so any advice from me should be considered as “good guess”.
From the screen shot it looks like your pi is not connecting with WiFi. What I did was to copy/paste the text from Rene’s instructions and only altered the network name and pw. That way I was sure to get it right.
I have done it a number of times now with the same result, even starting with a re-imaged SD card…I have a sneaky suspicion that the Linux instructions for confirming files etc are what have gone wrong…I must admit that Linux makes Windows look user friendly but a s child of six can master it, I will keep plugging away ( or enlist a six year old ) Thanks for the encouragement that the instructions work, just down to operator error!!
