M587: Bad or missing parameter

  • Hi, I just received my DuetWifi V1.03.
    I'm stuck with connecting the Wifi. I'm getting this error: M587: Bad or missing parameter.
    My wifi is not 5GH.
    Here's my network SSID and password:
    M587 S”Xiaomi5772” P”Kahel2000”.
    I tried many times and tried connecting the USB again and starting over. Even had a "_" in the SSID and removed it from the name.
    Here's the terminal texts I got:

  • @rajaakahel said in M587: Bad or missing parameter:

    M587 S”Xiaomi5772” P”Kahel2000”.

    Make sure that you are using regular straight double quotes " In the command you send to the Duet.
    Because the ones you have given above () are a different symbol.

    Try copy and pasting the following:
    M587 S"Xiaomi5772" P"Kahel2000"

  • @wilriker Awesome! It's connected now! Wow thanks for the quick answer!
    Strange they provided the wrong symbols!

  • @rajaakahel You are welcome.
    You are using a Mac - nothing coming from those strikes me as strange. 😂 (I confess to be a Linux fanboy 😁)

  • @wilriker Well I'm learning then 😄 Hopefully I'll be able to not get surprised 😄
