UM3 Wi-Fi issue

Recommended Posts

So I have UM3 and its been working great for the last few months.  recently I got a new Wi-Fi access point for our office environment "HPE OC20".

The UM3 will connect to it most of the time, but sometime it get a really odd IP address for the UM3 that is not in the same network.  Anyone else see this?

So, one more observation.  If I restart the Wi-Fi AP while the Ultimaker is on I will get an IP in the correct network 192.168.2.XXX.

If I restart the Ultimaker and the AP has been on for several hours I will get this odd 169.254.54.29 IP address.

The odd 169 address is the address the printer will take if it never gets an address from the WiFi router.

 

Can you check if your router has a feature called "band steering"? We've noticed that this feature in WiFi routers is causing problems for the WiFi in the Ultimaker3, depending on your WiFi router.

    • "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.
