Tutorial - running Duet Wifi 2 in Access Point Mode ?

    @sputnikoc3d

    Now that I think about it I've believe I have always executed the gcode I posted using the USB connection just to get the WiFi connection going so I could then create the various configuration files.

    I've don't think I have ever actually tried it from within config.g OR as a macro executed via the DWC.

    got a friend who executes a stored macro almost verbatim of the one i Just posted [ because I essentially stole his ] - that he runs off the panelDue when needing to connect at a different locale than HOME.



  • I feel as if the 1st order of business to tackle this issue is - stopping the Duet from connecting to the OLD network. aka - flushing out the stored settings on this indestructible eprom memory ....

    M588 from config.g doesnt work - what other options for this are avail ?

    remove sd card and do a full reset - reinsert sd card and reboot ? how does that perhaps work - and ... I will say again - this is in-f'ing-sane to have to do THIS ...

    If I wanted to hook the printer up to a USB cable... muhhh NVM ....

    No path should be fine of located in sys folder.

    Extension is optional. Notepad++ defaults should be fine.

    I think your best bet at this point is getting it connected to a PC via USB and seeing what's going on in the terminal. Update the firmwares. Take it back to basics and try again.



  • If the wifi module is disabled at start up with M552 S0 it can't connect to anything..

    Dc42 will be along eventually in sure and hopefully have a quick fix.



  • @sputnikoc3d This is long shot. You don't by any chance have a config-override.g file do you? If so, does it have any network commands in it? If you did, whatever you change in config.g would be overridden by whatever is in the override file. I've never heard of anyone having network commands in config-override.g hence why it's a long shot, but it would explain why your changes don't "stick".

    M587, M588 and M589 commands do not work in config.g because the WiFi module isn't enabled until config.g has completed, and only then if there was an M552 command in config.g. So to execute these commands, go to the console using YAT, PanelDue or DWC (if you are connected) and then:

    • if you are not connected via DWC, send M552 S0 to start the WiFi module in idle mode
    • send the M587, M588 and/or M589 command(s) you need

    TY DC42 - that about sums it up. USB or PanelDue of no M5882.

    even if I had a paneldue [ and this is based on never having USED one ever before ... how would one MAKE a new macro on hte paneldue - to issue the commands to make a macro and send M587/M588/M589 .... guess there is a interface for typing characters on it ?

    Off to the elecreinics store to find a long enough USB cable now that will reach from Intel NUC to Printer. Pronterface ok here for this YAT is just not my cup of tea - at all.



  • @sputnikoc3d any usb terminal emulator program should work. Bear in mind the capitalization thing I posted above.

    The paneldue has a on screen keyboard that you can enter commands on and an interface to execute macro files that are already on the SD card.

    Just FYI I use a program called Docklight Scripting when I need to send commands and respond to replies from things like the Duet USB port.

    I have gotten so much use out of it over the years using it in all sorts of situations.

    Bear in mind that Pronterface forces all the characters you send to upper case, which is awkward for entering passwords in particular. That's why we suggest YAT for this purpose.
