    Running LMS without internet

    I have a Apple MBP running LMS which works fine. I'm going on holiday next week to a place without internet. I was planning to take my laptop (with the music on it) and my Squeezebox radio.

    I tried turning off my router (given to me by my ISP here in France) as a test and it didn't work - the connection is via 192.168.1.xxx given by the router.

    Does anyone know what I can do to make it work - I want to connect my squeezebox via Wifi direct to my MBP. Or do I have to take my router also (even though there is nothing to plug it into)?

    Sorry if the question isn't clear - I'm not sure of the correct terminology. I'd like to be able to stream/play the music from my laptop using the logitech radio as I do at home but I'll not have internet access as I'll be in the countryside. If I can do that with laptop and radio (and not more boxes) that would be ideal.

    in this case you also turned your switch and dhcp Server off as well.

    Do another test - the real thing...

    Unplug your Cable from your edit\internet/edit distributor to the router.
    YOu will see unless your using some radio its working.

    I have a mobile LMS + SB3 set up that I use for parties that specifically is intended to work without internet access. I connect the LMS server and SB3 with ethernet cables to switch ports on a wireless router set up to handle DHCP requests for 192.168.25.x with a scope of x=50 to 99. The LMS server has a static IP of (so it's easy to remember in case I have to manually point something to it). My phone and tablet can connect wirelessly and I use Orange Squeeze to control LMS (have to "force" the phone to stay on the wireless since it doesn't connect to the internet). I have used this setup out in the middle of a field running off a Honda generator (I have a pro-audio Furman power conditioner to protect everything from any electrical noise from the generator).
