Wifi server configurability

  • Not sure if some of what I discuss below would be covered by the https://www.duet3d.com/forum/thread.php?id=961 but here goes 😉

    I was out at the MRRF over the weekend. My home wifi network obviously not accessible so the controller went into AP mode for DuetWifi SSID which is mostly ok. The down side is that a number of other DuetWifi controllers were present which lead to confusion and inability to use the wifi component ( which DuetWifi would my laptop connect to? ). Is there a way to override the fallback AP bssid - thinking maybe the hostname as configured in the gcode settings or something would be enough to allow a configured override.

    Also is there a way to hook up an ethernet interface to the DuetWifi board? I know its wifi which is great but it could be useful to also have wired ( either on the board or via an add-on board ).

    It would also be nice to show the assigned IP address from the lcd panel. Maybe also have an option under setup to have it randomly generate an SSID for AP mode? ( Go have some fun with silly name pairs! )

    Nice to hear there were so many Duets at MRRF!

    I have started work on the WiFi code rewrite that will include configuration of the WiFi details from data on the SD card. You can display the assigned IP address on PanelDue by using the keyboard to send M552. The Duet Ethernet is now in production and will be available soon, see https://www.duet3d.com/forum/thread.php?id=1161.

  • Sweet thanks!

  • I would also like to see a login and password.
    For event like MRRF.

    There is already a password, you just need to configure it in config.g.
