    You don't have wifi going but net-usb has connected to your network. Your IP has been set.

    So everything is OK

    What's the next step with wifi? Should I be able to connect Squeezebox now, via ethernet?

    Now your LMS should find the new pCP player through the LAN cable - so please try to open your LMS web pages and select piCorePlayer.
    When you have been playing through LMS-pCP you can try to enable wifi on the pCP player.

    To do so follow the instructions here: https://www.picoreplayer.org/how_to_setup_wifi.shtml

    I followed the instructions, did a reboot, quicly disconnected the ethernet cable, and...NO wifi. This just doesn't work.

    Either I need to do everything with an ethernet cable, or which will be a bitch once the portable player would be built into a case, or this project simply won't work as a portable player with a Pi Zero and picoreplayer.

    This was the screen before reboot. No wifi connection, although the LMS web interface does see my wifi WAP signals. Note that I tried using both SSIDs, including "Amped_AP" (shown in the picture) and "Bearz Office".

    There is no need to reboot, until you get a good WiFi connection.

    You will notice that Amped_AP is not in the scan list.

    You are likely out of range, or have something interfering with reception.

    That same WAP is named "Bearz Office". I wonder if the name has something to do with it? I tried both names, maybe it's the space in the name?

    There was no connection before rebooting, as indicated down at the bottom right of the wifi menu (next to the Mac address).

    SSIDs with spaces should not be a problem. But it feels like something conflicting in the WAP setup.

    Bearz Office is also the only one setup with WPA, where as all the others are showing WPA2.

    I moved the rig to my living room, and was able to connect to bears-guest WAP. It looks like you called it with the WPA versus WPA2 security setup. Will go through the configurations and check back.

    The next steps to getting this to be a portable music player. Advice badly needed...

    1. Create a partition on the SD card for storing music

    2. How to give permission to copy files from a Windows computer using a telnet or other program (there was one mentioned earlier in the thread that I installed) to transfer the files.

    3. How to mount the partition so picoreplayer can use the music files

    4. If there's a way to do the mounting and configuration automatically through scripting or a config file so that picoreplayer always sees the music folders.

    There are pages on our web site to help installing lms and also setting up a music disk. Would recommend leaving the SD card with pCP on it alone and just add a USB drive.
