Firmware 1.19 connection problems

  • Hi,

    im running duet wifi with duex2 for almost a year now without problems.
    Recently i upgraded the firmware to version 1.29 and now i have a lot of connection problems.:

    1. i cannot connect add all, after restarting the duet or randomly after some time i can connect.
    2. it disconnects me (a lot) . " An AJAX Error has been reported etc.. Error reason : Timeout"

    I dont think this is a wifi problem because it wasnt a problem with the old firmware.

    im running Wifi Server version 1.19.2 and web interface version 1.19.3

  • administrators

    Have you tried the 1.20 release?

  • Was there a bug in 1.19 that is fixed in 1.20 ?

    i read the thread about 1.20 some are also reporting connection problems,

    Maybe i try that one today.

  • 1.20 fixed the problem

  • sorry it did not fixed the problem, i still get the AJAX errors.
    Im running :
    Duet wifi 1.) + Duex2
    firmware version 1.20
    wifi server version 1.20
    web interface version 1.19.3

    Is it possible to go back to the old firmware ? i didnt have this problem before.

    This is my M122 reply.

    WiFi firmware version 1.20
    WiFi MAC address 5c:cf:7f:2c:25:2f
    WiFi Vcc 3.32, reset reason Turned on by main processor
    WiFi flash size 4194304, free heap 16416

    WiFi signal strength -69dBm, reconnections 0, sleep mode modem

  • i see my wifi strength is not great -69dBm, but i dont think this has anything to do with it.
    For example if i upload file it just works fine even with really big ones,

  • i missed the number of AJAX retries setting, it was set to 1, changed to 5 and it is a bit better,
    But i still get disconnects.
    Maybe i set it to a really high number.
    But it doesnt really fix the problem i think it just makes it workable

  • oke with AJAX retries set to 50 i was connected for 5 minutes. but then i get the AJAx error
    and i could not reconnect again it looks like web server is just down . My browser gives me this error : ERR_CONNECTION_RESET

    When i send ping to the Duet it does reply so it does have a wifi connection.

  • is there a special procedure to go back to the old firmware ?
    i think the last working version (for me) was :

    • DuetWifiFirmware-1.17e
    • Duetwebcontrol-1.14a
    • DuetWifiServer-1.03-ch

  • administrators

    Have you tried both versions 1.20 and 1.20+1 of DuetWiFiFirmware?

  • i download this version :
    thats 1.20
    Where can i get the 1.20+1 ?

    I prefer to go for the latest version that didnt have the disconnect problems .

    i see on this board users who have this 1.20+1 version and the are also reporting disconnects.

    I dont have a panel due connected so my only option to print is with the webinterface.

  • i will upload the old firmware today and hope it will work.

    • DuetWifiFirmware-1.17e
    • Duetwebcontrol-1.14a
    • DuetWifiServer-1.03-ch

  • i installed the old firmware, and untill now i didnt see any Ajax erros .

    it looks like there is a bug in the 1.19 and later firmware. or my board is broken.

    would be nice if this is fixed so i can also enjoy the new features.

  • its running for 5 hours now and still no AJAX errors.

    So im happy i can print again, but if its not fixed , im stuck with old firmware….
