Install Volumio and connect to Volumio Hotspot
For those who want to download and install Volumio 2, look at this video for a quick tutorial:
From this video, skip the command line field. Not necessary anymore.
After you put your micro sd card back to Raspberry Pi you must wait 5-10 minutes and then connect to Volumio hotspot (from your mobile or tablet or laptop)
(look the image below):
Volumio will make a Hotspot. Open a browser and type this address 192.168.211.1(from your mobile or tablet) or if you are on a Windows machine then type http://volumio.local
Connect to it with password “volumio2“. After connected to “volumio” wifi, below wizard helper page will be appear:
If for some reason you skipped wizard or it didn’t show up, go to Network Settings (from the menu icon on top left corner):
and configure Volumio to connect to your own WiFi. Scroll down until you see your own WiFi access point:
When you press Connect(red arrow on image) then the screen will “blacked out” and a spin wheel will show for one minute or less. Wait and after that your Raspberry Pi will be connected to your WiFi router.
PS. If you connect an ethernet cable, none of these are needed 🙂
