Duet 2 Wi-Fi/ethernet conversion
I'm going to replace the wifi module on my duet 2 with an ethernet module I'm using it on a CNC running the cnc version of DWC, since the board is in an industrial electric box that's made from steel I always have to keep it open and facing up to get a decent enough connection for it to be usable and also interference from everything else in the box must not help. I don't have any trouble with soldering as i've done way harder before, but I'm not sure what to do after that, do I have to flash another firmware that's for the ethernet on my duet or do I just change the wifi connection commands and is there anything else I need to change or flash? Thanks a bunch!
Going from wifi to ethernet you won't have to do any firmware flashing. You may need to change the network setup depending on if you want to use DHCP reservation at the router or define a static ip in the config.

I think the Ethernet boards are superior, because they are not constantly disconnecting and if you have an access point on the network, it can be wireless as well.
