Cannot Connect To The WEB Interface With Duet WiFi



  • I have followed the instructions through step 8. here https://duet3d.com/wiki/Getting_connected_to_the_Duet_WiFi and I cannot connect to the Duet using the default IP address 192.168.1.1. Pronterface responds with this message:

    M552 S0
    SENDING:M552 S0
    WiFi server stopped

    M552 S1
    SENDING:M552 S1
    WiFi server starting up
    DuetWiFiServer version 1.02
    Flash size 4194304, free RAM 31728 bytes, WiFi Vcc 3.40V, host name: duetwifi457, reset reason: Turned on by main processor
    WiFi is running as an access point with name DuetWiFi

    I am connected via USB port and don't get the IP address mentioned in step 11. If I type 192.168.1.1 in my browser's address bar I get the message "This site can’t be reached
    192.168.1.1 took too long to respond."

    Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong as I am sure it's me, not the Duet.

    Thanks,
    Orin



  • Also, If I send M105 to check the firmware version I get no response.



  • Hi,

    When the DuetWifi is running as an ACCESS POINT you first have to connect to it using, say, a laptop or other WiFi capable device like a tablet.

    The SSID is DuetWiFi.

    Once you have connected you will configure the DuetWifi to run as a WiFi client. Then the DuetWiFi can connect to your home WiFi network.

    Assuming you have a home WiFi network.

    Once the DuetWiFi is connected to your home WiFi network it will report, via the USB connection, the IP address it has been assigned by your Router.

    When you have that IP address then you can connect via a browser to the DuetWiFi web server.

    Make sense?

    Or have you already done all that?

  • Hi Frederick,

    I was able to connect to the Duet with a laptop and it returned a address of 192.168.1.100 but I don't know how to configure the Duet as a WiFi client. I'm using Windows 7 and the network sharing center shows the Duet as a Public Network. The Pronterface monitor shows this: WiFi is running as an access point with name DuetWiFi

    If you have time would you show me how to configure the Duet as a WiFi client. In the meanwhile, I'll be doing a lot of reading - :>)

    Have you followed the step by step instructions at https://duet3d.com/wiki/Getting_connected_to_the_Duet_WiFi ?



  • Yes I have - In my first note in this thread I said I got as far as step 8 and essentially that's where I still stop.

    Connect to the DuetWifi access point, then find your home network SSID in the list, enter your home network password and save that. Reboot the Duet and it will attempt to connect to your home network



  • @T3P3Tony:

    Connect to the DuetWifi access point, via the USB port ?

    then find your home network SSID in the list I have that SSID

    , enter your home network password I have that

    and save that. Where do I save the SSID and password and how do I save it? Do I use Pronterface? Is there an associated M command

    Reboot the Duet and it will attempt to connect to your home network

    Thanks,
    Orin



  • After you connect to DuetWifi access point, go to 192.168.1.1 via your browser.
    There is a step by step instruction on the wiki
    https://duet3d.com/wiki/Getting_connected_to_the_Duet_WiFi



  • I have tried that using both Windows Internet Explorer and Google Chrome and both just sit and search and never connect.

    Regarding the Step by step guide. I can never get past step 8



  • So step 8 is connecting via wifi

    1. your computer is on WiFi, do you have a list of access Points?
    2. If so do you see the Duet an access Point? If not, are you seeing any access points?


  • @Phytone3d:

    So step 8 is connecting via wifi

    1. your computer is on WiFi, do you have a list of access Points? Yes I do
    2. If so do you see the Duet an access Point? Yes I see it and I can connect to it via WiFi


  • @dc42:

    Have you followed the step by step instructions at https://duet3d.com/wiki/Getting_connected_to_the_Duet_WiFi ?

    I have spent hours and made multiple attempts trying to get my Duet to respond to step 8 in the step-by-step guide and have never gotten the Duet to respond. Should I assume that the Duet I have is defective?


  • administrators

    You said :

    1. If so do you see the Duet an access Point? Yes I see it and I can connect to it via WiFi

    When you connect to it, does it display a list of the SSIDs of the wifi networks it can see, and are you able to select the one you want and enter the password for it?

    I'm out of the office at present, otherwise I would provide a screenshot of what that list should look like.


 

Looks like your connection to Duet3D was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
