    Is the firmware binary in he /sys/ directory on the SD card?



  • Here the three bin files in the sys folder on SD card:

    DuetWebControl
    DuetWiFiFirmware-1.15c
    DuetWiFiServer


  • administrators

    The firmware needs to be renamed to:
    DuetWiFiFirmware.bin


  • administrators

    Also consider updating to version 1.1.6



  • I put the 1.16 firmware as well as the latest web and server. when I went to run the M997 all went well at least one solved.

    Thanks for the help
