Wifi Errors: SPI timeout

  • Duet Wifi h/w 1.04
    RRF 2.02 (release)
    Wifi Server 1.22
    DWC 1.22.6

    In the middle of a print, I was unable to connect to DWC. I was also unable to connect via telnet (which I have enabled.) According to my wifi AP, the duet was connected to the AP. In addition, I was able to successfully ping the duet from a PC. Finally, forcing my AP to disassociate from the duet (and letting the duet reconnect) didn't resolve the issue.

    On the paneldue "console" tab, I found lots of "Error retrieving WiFi status message: SPI timeout." This message was repeated 5 times every 5 seconds.

    I used an old macro to reset wifi via the paneldue (M552 S-1, G4 P500, M552 S1) and wifi came back up just fine with no issues/problems or messages. M122 run after the wifi was reset (via DWC) didn't show any problems (but I've included the text below for completeness.)

    For future use (in case I get this problem again), is there a set of commands I can put into a macro (that I can run from the paneldue) that will generate more useful information AND write it to a file on the duet's SD card? I have the feeling that M122 output would have been more useful before resetting wifi (but I doubt the paneldue would have displayed it.)

    I don't recall anyone reporting that message before, neither have I seen it myself. My guess is that the WiFi module locked up.

    If it happens again, then the most useful thing you could do to help me diagnose it would be to connect a PC via USB, send M111 S1 P14 from it, and see if you get any WiFi debug messages. The M122 output might also be useful.
