Duet Wifi - the wifi module turned off/disconnected during print



  • It was a 7 hour print, and after about 5 hours the wifi turned off / disconnected... not sure what happened. The blue LED that is on the Wifi module was off, and the browser was disconnected from the 3D printer. The printer kept going though.

    I don't have the PanelDue, so for the last 2 hours of the print I had my fingers crossed because there is nothing that I could do to control the printer, thankfully my print did not fail. When it finished printing I had to reset the board and wifi was back on.

    This is very concerning, because I have no other way to control the printer. I have a filament monitor, and if the print pauses, I have no way to resume the print.

    Is there a way to reset the Wifi module while it's printing without disturbing the main board ?

    PS. all my other devices on the network were fine, there was no problem with the local network.



  • I have a similar issue. Yet my wifi module LED stays on. https://forum.duet3d.com/topic/7803/web-interface-shutting-down-during-printing

    Recent firmware versions auto-reconnect to the access point when they detect loss of connection, so I guess you are running older firmware.
