WiFi reported error: Failed while trying to connect



  • Brand new board out of the box from filastruder (external antenna). Immediately run M587 through YAT, etc and was met with above error.

    Tried updating firmware with M997 and seems successful:

    Found another thread with very similar symptoms: https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/9807/failed-to-add-ssid-to-remember-list

    And followed the procedure within:
    dc42 said in Failed to add SSID to remember list:

    • Run M115 to check that the 2.03beta3 firmware is installed (or at least version 2.02)
    • Then run M997 S1 to install the DuetWiFiFirmware.bin file
    • Then run M552 S0 to put the WiFi module in idle mode
    • Then run M552 to check that it is in idle mode (not still "being started")
    • Then you should be able to use M587 to add the SSID and password.

    With slightly different results, now I get a code-7:

    ok<LF>WiFi reported error: Failed while trying to connect to ********<LF>WiFi module is idle<LF>Error retrieving WiFi status message: SPI timeout<LF>WiFi module is idle<LF>Failed to change WiFi mode (code -7)<LF>
    

    Little bit lost at this point 😕 Any ideas?





  • thank you for this insight.



  • Its a lot easier to read when the <LF> tuns into actual line feeds; your call.



  • The time you've spent typing these two posts is already >= the time it takes to skim the first few lines of diagnostic output, the other two YAT responses are two lines each and the rest of my procedure is documented both in bullets and in another thread with a similar issue.

    If you have any other suggestions I'm all ears, but dropping into a thread and saying only that comes off very rudely.

    e: not the machine right this second but hopefully this will help

    Hang tight while I figure out what code 7 is. Haven't seen that one before.

    And I'm sorry but if you looked at M122 posts all day you'd want the proper formatting as well. Trying to read that on a mobile phone is nearly impossible, and on a monitor it's still eye wrenching. Please do a courtesy to those trying to help you by saving their poor eyeballs. 🤓



  • This post is deleted!


  • @Phaedrux
    Do you think this is a failed wifi module like dc42 suggested in the post I linked?

    This board was already a replacement for another failed duet thats out of warranty 😕


  • Moderator

    @thrawn86 It's possible. Still waiting for DC to take a look.


  • administrators

    That code means that the WiFi module didn't respond to a request for a transaction from the duet.

    Are you certain that the WiFi firmware that you put on it was the DuetWiFiServer-1.23.bin file, renamed to DuetWiFiServer.bin before you ran M997 S1 ?


  • Moderator

    @thrawn86 from switching on/reset, no SD card, connect via YAT on USB, then try sending M552 S-1 to disable module, then M552 S0 to enable module but not turn on WiFi, then add SSID with M587, and finally enable with M552 S1. Sometimes disabling then enabling kicks it into life.

  • @dc42
    Positive. Any reason I shouldn't be using 2.05.1 and 1.23?

    I have repeated the process a few times and occasionally have seen other errors including Code 4, Code 7, status error: Bad Reply format and status error: SPI timeout

  • @thrawn86 said in WiFi reported error: Failed while trying to connect:

    Any reason I shouldn't be using 2.05.1 and 1.23?

    There is no wifi firmware 2.05.1; that is reprap firmware. Reprap firmware 2.05.1 which is released together with DuetWiFiServer-1.23.bin; and it needs to be renamed to just DuetWifiServer.bin if you're doing things manually. In any case you'll have to have a valid DuetWiFiServer.bin file on the SD card as the latest M122 does show WiFi firmware version 1.23



  • @bearer
    2.05.1 being the firmware reported by the board. I assume its relevant, but I'm sorry if my nomenclature isn't correct here.

    The title of the github page I downloaded this firmware from is literally "Release 2.05.1" so I assume that both the combined firmware and wifi firmware linked therein are the correct ones to use. M122 reports that both are those versions are installed on their respective parts. If this isn't correct, please let me know.

    RepRapFirmware for Duet 2 WiFi/Ethernet version 2.05.1 running on Duet WiFi 1.02 or later
    
    WiFi firmware version 1.23
    


  • @thrawn86 said in WiFi reported error: Failed while trying to connect:

    so I assume that both the combined firmware and wifi firmware linked therein are the correct ones to use

    but on the SD card the wifi firmware needs to be called just DuetWifiServer.bin not DuetWiFiServer-1.23.bin which is normally handled by the web interface automagically.

    still, odds are DuetWifiServer.bin on the SD card is version 1.23 as that is what the running wifi modue is reporting.



  • @bearer

    YAT is the only way I have to talk to the board right now since I can't connect to DWC, so firmware is done and renamed manually.

    Ultimately I just want to figure out if I need to send this board back or not, updating to the correct firmware has never been this difficult.


  • administrators

    If M122 reports that the WiFi firmware version is 1.23 then it has evidently been installed correctly. I think the WiFi module may be faulty and should be replaced.

    at this point I have done literally nothing but open the box, connect the antenna and perform the steps described in : https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Guide/1.)+Getting+Connected+to+your+Duet/7 , sans firmware update. 2.03 was what I was running on my first board connected to the same network, before the sd card slot died.



  • in addition, subsequent attempts (restarting, forgetting and re-adding network, creating a new SSID and connecting to that instead) have all yielded the same variety of wifi error messages including:

    -Error retrieving WiFi status message: bad reply format version
    
    Error retrieving WiFi status message: SPI timeout
    
    Failed to change WiFi mode (code -7)
    


  • @thrawn86 said in WiFi reported error: Failed while trying to connect:

    -Error retrieving WiFi status message: bad reply format version

    normally fixed by (from YAT etc)

    M552 S-1 ;to disable the wifi module
    M552 S0 ;to disable networking/idle wifi
    G4 S1 ;wait a second
    M587 S"" P"" ; insert ssid and passphrase to add wifi
    M552 S1 ;to enable networking
    

    but to try and get some more info on the other issues i'd run

    M588 S"*"; forget all previous access point info
    

    then power down, remove the SD card and power it back up without the SD card. connect to usb/YAT and run

    M111 P14 S1 ;to enable wifi debug
    M552 S-1 ;to disable the wifi module
    M552 S0 ;to disable networking/idle wifi
    G4 S1 ;wait a second
    M587 S"" P"" ; insert ssid and passphrase to add wifi
    M552 S1 ;to enable networking
    

    (don't need to type ; and what comes after, but its safe to copy/paste as is)

    edit: unclear - you installed RRF 2.03 but wifi 1.23 was on there already?
