Unable to connect via WLAN after restart of printer (UM3E)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Printer: Ultimaker 3 Extended

There is a reproducable bug with the WLAN connection to the printer:

 

  • Restart printer using ON/OFF switch on the back
  • Wait until printer has started
  • Open Cura
  • switch to "Monitor" tab
  • Click "View printers" (this opens a browser)
  • Restart Printer (On/Off switch)
  • Refresh browser
  • The ultimaker is found in the network and displayed correctly with its name
  • Click "show details" on the printer:
  • Bug occurres: Unable to connect (see screenshot)

 

The problem can be fixed on the printer:

 

  • Go to System -> Network
  • Switch "Wifi" OFF
  • Switch "WiFi" ON
  • Refresh browser
  • Everything is fine

 

The printer is only 1 month old, latest (stable) firmware ...

The problem occurres everytime I restart the printer.

Any ideas?

Hi Macio,

 

it seems you have the same problem than I. See here:

It is not only limited to Cura and also not the Wifi (LAN has the same problem => can you verify that?). Can you double check your IP shown in printer details als marked in my pictures?

Still with the newest Firmware v4.2.5! Have you solved that problem meanwhile?

 

Greetings,

Ich

Update:

 

The problem occurred again with actual firmware after our printer got a new IP adress from the DHCP server.

 

You can see the issue just using a web-browser. Type in the new assigned IP adress leads to a small web page:

Click on "Cura Connect":

Switch to "Drucker" (Printer) tab:

As you can see there is a IP mismatch. The IP on the bottom is the old IP adress.

 

After switching WIFI OFF and ON everything is fine:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
