    Hi,+
    wlan repeater -> not the best solution
    rpi 3 with onboard wlan without an external antenna -> not really a good solution

    both together -> args

    I tested another Pi 3B+ at the same place but with Raspbian running and this Pi never had any problems and there is also no external antenna.

    How many times did you restart Raspbian vs pCP. Your original post said sometimes.......With wifi, intermittent problems are almost always signal strength issues. Raspbian might have better fault tollerance with the many daemons running in the background. That is a trade off when running the lightweight pCP.
    piCorePlayer a small player for the Raspberry Pi in RAM.

    Did you use the same audio card on the "another Pi 3B+ at the same place but with Raspbian"?

    Way back, I have seen problems with built-in wifi and some audio cards. I would just add a USB wifi adaptor in this case and turn off the built-in wifi.

    I can't remember the exact combination of RPi and hifi board and software unfortunately.

    Did I mention the "Network wait" command on the [Wifi Settings] page.

    This was added for some USB wifi adaptors that were very slow to negotiate with DHCP. Unlike yours, these adaptors were always slow, not intermittent.

    If you dramatically increase this value it might give you an indication if the backgrounded DHCP eventually occurs.

    I tried it the same time at the same place and it immediately worked. The Repeater can be directly seen at that position.

    No, there is no Audio card. The piCorePlayer Pi has a Hifiberry DAC+ Pro.

    I can not find it, even in beta. Is it only available with an external Wifi adapter?
    One thing I didn't mention ist that Bluetooth is switched off.

    Sorry for leading you astray, it looks like this feature didn't get fully into pCP4.1.0.

    Can you see if there is a NETWORK_WAIT="50" towards the end of /usr/local/etc/pcp/pcp.cfg? Scroll down on the [About] page.
