I am having trouble with Airplaying to a raspberry Pi device using the shairplay software.
The raspberry pi device is on 2.4 Ghz wifi. Iwconfig lists the wifi quality as:
Link Quality=100/100 Signal level=77/100 Noise level=0/100
When I airplay music to it from my iMac (connected to router via ethernet), airplay works perfectly. No dropouts or hiccups.
When I try to airplay music to it from my iPhone, I get many dropouts. When I connect to the 5Ghz wifi band with my iPhone, airplay works well, but still some dropouts in music and sometimes disconnections. When I connect to the 2.4 gz wifi band with my iPhone, airplay is almost unusable, many dropouts and disconnects after a few minutes.
How can I troubleshoot an Airplay problem (sending to a wifi device from an iPhone on the same wifi network)?
