Changing WiFi module

  • Hi,

    I want to swap the ESP-12 module for an ESP-07 module.

    Why? I want to have an external antenna connection so I can shield the electronics enclosure area.

    The 07 module has an external connector so my interest is more about updating the firmware so this hardware is usable on the Duet.

    Can this be done easily?

    There is already a thread on this. You need to use the ESP-07S module, not the older ESP-07. Swapping the module over is not difficult if you have a hot air desoldering tool to remove the old ESP and a fine-tipped soldering iron to fit the new one. Once the ESP-07S is fitted, put the standard DuetWiFiServer.bin file in /sys on the SD card and send M997 S1 from USB or PanelDue to install it.
