I decided to finally go far with MusicBox. So I went out and got a Netgear N300 wireless adapter. I have a Linksys EA6400 wireless router, SSID: Alt-Stowers and the security is set to WPA2/WPA Mixed Personal (I tried WPA2 Personal as well).
I plopped in the password and when I boot it up, it says “Waiting for network…” about 7 times then finally says “[ ok] IP address is 169.254.11.229 . Connect to MusicBox at…” I have no idea what that IP address is. It isn’t local or external on my network.
I have used both a powered USB hub and directly connecting to the pi. (I have a RPI B model.) When I unplug the adapter and plug it in it gives the product, manufcaturer, usb id all that good stuff… then it says:
snd-hifiberry-digi snd-hifiberry-digi.0: ASoC: CODEC wm8804.1-003b not registered
snd-hifiberry-digi snd-hifiberry-digi.0 snd_soc_register_card() failed: -517
platform snd-hifiberry-digi.0: Driver snd-hifiberry-digi requests probe deferral
Can’t seem to get this USB wireless stick to work… eth0 works fine\
Any help would be appreciated.
