  • I went through the out of step instructions and this is what I have now. Still no wifi as far as I can tell.

    Are you sending M552 S0 (which is correct), or M552 SO which is what you have written?

    What result do you get when you send M552 S1?

  • This is what I get,

  • Anything on my last post helpful ?

    I am sorry, somehow I missed your post of 27 February.

    The "no known networks found" message means that it didn't find any of the networks whose SSIDs you entered in M587. So:

    1. Run M587 with no parameters to list the networks (probably just one) you have told it about. Check that the SSID listed matches exactly the SSID of the WiFi network you want it to connect to. SSIDs are case-sensitive.

    2. If the SSID matches exactly, then the problem is probably insufficient WiFi signal strength at the Duet.

    I am assuming that your WiFi network doesn't use a hidden SSID. if it does then you need to quote the SSID in the M552 command.

  • Adding to David's post above, make sure that the network you are connecting to is 2.4GHz, the ESP wifi module does not support 5GHz.

  • Thank you that fixed it, I had my SSID wrong.

    Thanks again for your time and help. Now to get my machine all setup.
