Duet wifi Controller interface won't accept password



  • I got my replacement duet wifi board because the other was defective (yay)! I went through the whole setup again and put in the config file. But wanted to reconfigure it, when I did this it asked for the password. I gave it the password and then another million times and it refuses.. So I tried connecting with USB and via YAT change the password using M551 Pnnn but this didnt work either. I have tried looking around the forum, but you put "wifi" and "password" in the same search and it is cluttered with other searches..

    So, basic question is, how do I gain access to the interface when it won't accept the simple password I gave it?

    Best regards
    Magnus

    Yes you can.

    It gets tricky if your password contains accented characters, but it should still work if you save config.g to the SD card in UTF8 format.

    Preferably, surround the password with double quote characters, for example:

    M551 P"reprap"



  • @dc42 It worked 🙂 finally I am setting up the axis etc. hopefully tommorow I will start my first duet print
