Beta11: "Error: Failed to initialise WiFi module, code -10"

  • Error: Failed to initialise WiFi module, code -10

    Hi folks,
    Setting up a Duet Wifi today… I am running/powering it just over USB, I was able to set up wifi, access the web interface, and then I uploaded the latest beta11 firmware to the web interface. I believe it flashed successfully, but then network went down.

    I have read the wiki sections about updating and fallbacks, but I am confused about what the next step should be.

    I think this board has been sitting dormant for a few months, so it is entirely possible that the ESP8266 firmware is too old, or something else?

    Feedback after reset:

    Thanks for the help!

  • An update,
    The next thing I tried to do was manually flash the experimental wifi firmware. This, after sending M552 S1, would report no known networks found followed by Wifi module is idle. I would never get a Duet access point.

    At this point I wiped the SD Card and created gcodes folder and copied macros from the github and sys from the sys-Prusai3.

    After this I did a manual flash of stable main firmware and wifi firmware, and now I was able to set up my wifi network again and access the web interface.

    So, I am now on stable firmware… Will wait until I am better aquainted with all this before try experimental again...

    One other question - I notice the Diag LED is constantly on, I'm not sure if it was before. It will blink off for a sec when the board is reset, but otherwise it is always on. Is this ok?

    Always read the upgrade notes at before installing new firmware. Had you done so, they would have led you to

    The diag light shares a pin with the Z probe MOD signal, so it is always on when using a type 1 Z probe.
