I'm hoping someone can help me. I've been using my board (a Duet Wifi) for some time and had no problems with it (apart from blowing one of the fan mosfets, but that's my own fault).
This evening, I was uploading a file getting ready to print, and the upload seemed to fail (it never completed). Since then I've not been able to connect to the duet over the wifi.
I've restarted the duet several times (by removing all power) to no avail.
Right now, it's connected via USB and after a M552 S0 then M552 S1 I'm getting "Error retrieving WiFi status message: bad reply format version". A search showed this to be due to a mismatch between the firmwares on the ESP and the main board, but I've not done any firmware updates in a long time, and the machine's been powered off many times since then. M115 gives: "FIRMWARE_NAME: RepRapFirmware for Duet 2 WiFi/Ethernet FIRMWARE_VERSION: 2.02(RTOS) ELECTRONICS: Duet WiFi 1.02 or later FIRMWARE_DATE: 2018-12-24b1" and M122 gives:

I've masked "board ID" 'cause I have no idea if it's sensitive (although TBF I have no idea if any of the rest of it is )
If it's of any relevance, the duet is less than 1m from the wifi router - the same one it's always been connected to.

So, weirdly enough it just suddenly started working. I turned the power off and on again, it started the hotend fan as it normally does on startup, then maybe 20 seconds later the hotend fan ran again (as if the board had reset itself) and since then it appears to be working fine.
I had been having the same problems accessing from a tablet as well, otherwise I would have assumed it was my computer. Maybe something went funny with the wifi router (again, nothing had changed about it for months).
If anyone else has the same problem, I'm sorry but I can't suggest anything to try other than just waiting a couple of hours and trying again.

While it doesn't happen often, it is not unheard of for the router to go to La-La land and require a hard reboot.
My router has done it occasionally but what it really likes doing is to not show me the control web page while working fine for every other function. Only a reboot fixes it (for another couple of months).

I think you're likely right, there. It's a TP-Link router which I've never had a problem with before, but I think I came across a few posts on here that name TP-Link and strange problems.
Weirdly, it didn't affect any other devices on the network, including the laptop I posted here from (which is also on the 2.4 gig radio). The "bad reply format version" message confused me, too (although that doesn't take much these days
