Refresher Needed: 1.17 to 1.19.2

  • Hello,
    Been enjoying the DuetWifi for about a year now and haven't even needed to review my config.g. This thing just runs great. In my attempt to give it a static IP I successfully upgraded from 1.17 to 1.19.2. There is a lot to read in the release notes between then and now and can't seem to find it. Probably a command change but both my X and Y axis don't stop when the end switches are detected. Probably the Z as well. As for the static address I can't seem to get that to fly either. Below is my config and my latest attempt to a static address. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi, I don't know how to set a static ip, but my network paramerters are like this:

    M550 PDuetDelta 					; Set machine name
    M552 S1 						; Enable network
    M587 S"YourNetworkSSID" P"YourNetworkPASSWORD" 		; Configure access point and IP addresses.
    M586 P0 S1 						; Enable HTTP
    M586 P1 S0 						; Disable FTP
    M586 P2 S0 						; Disable Telnet
    M575 P1 B57600 S1					; Comms parameters for PanelDue

    I can access the printer by its name, in this case it's called DuetDelta, so it connects by just typing http://DuetDelta.local/

    As for the other issue, sorry I wouldn't know.
    You can try by generating a new file using the RRF tool and compare it with the old one. Maybe you can spot something.

    Best of luck.

    On the Duet WiFi you set up a static IP address in the M587 command where you define the router SSID and password.

  • Here are the instruction for David's answer.

    Pay close attention to the capitalization of the network name and pass; this will require some added single quotes in your M587 command. Note too that spaces and semicolon characters in the password need special attention.

  • Thanks for all the suggestions but without code that responds to my end stops it's useless. I need to figure that out first unless I need to print which will just mean reverting back to 1.17.

    Thanks for all the suggestions but without code that responds to my end stops it's useless. I need to figure that out first unless I need to print which will just mean reverting back to 1.17.

    Could do with a little more info about how and when the end stops are ignored. From what I can gather, they worked on 1.17 but something is amiss using 1.19? If that's correct then from the release notes we can see that deploy probe and retract probe files need to be deleted from the "sys" directory otherwise they will be acted on. So assuming that you have a probe that does not need to be deployed, and assuming that the behaviour only occurs during homing, then that might be a possible explanation. Otherwise, a bit more info about what is happening will help.

  • also I couldn't see a definition for the Z Endstop in your Config.G file either now it may not be needed depending on type of Z Probe you have so that is also info we need

  • administrators

    End stop detection has not changed between version 1.17 and 1.19. Use the M119 command or the Machine Properties page of DWC to check whether the firmware is reading your endstops correctly. Also look at the endstop LEDs on the Duet. If they turn on when the endstop witches are triggered, your configuration is correct. If they are normally on but turn off when the endstops are triggered, you need S1 instead of S0 in your M574 command. If they don't change when the endstop is triggered, then you have a wiring issue, or incompatible endstop sensors.

  • Have you on of those days where you look back and say "boy was I an idiot"? Tried my printer today and the end stops are working fine. I know I had to rush to the power switch after one of the axis wouldn't stop. Well moving on, sorry about that.

    As for the M587 command I tried it under 4 circumstances and still can't set an IP:

    1. Putting Wifi idle at the Pronterface command line with M552 S0. Sending M587 I192.168.1.2
    2. With Wifi running sending M587 I192.168.1.2
    3. Placed M587 I192.168.1.2 in my config.g before the M552 S1 command.
    4. Placed M587 I192.168.1.2 in my config.g after the M552 S1 command.

    So where is the correct location for this and what am I missing? The SSID and DHCP are working fine. I'm just tired of having to guess which address got leased out.

    Edit: I removed the old M552 I192.168.1.2 from my config.g before trying the above.

  • administrators

    With M587 you have to give the IP address at the same time as you give the SSID and password, because the IP address is specific to when you connect to that SSID.

  • I put the Wifi idle. Needed to delete my current SSID with M588. Sent SSID, PW and IP this time and it worked. Thanks for your help.
