S5 WiFi - Cannot connect to printer's hotspot

Recommended Posts

(I'm using a Windows 10 laptop)




Tried to connect to S5 via WiFi. It's a no go.


Following the on-screen WiFi setup procedure, the S5 instructs me to connect a computer or smartphone to it and start a browser. I can see the S5's SSID in the Windows WiFi network list, and direct my laptop to connect to it. Then, nothing happens. The procedure is stalled and I have to abort.




Thanks ?

Hi Covers911, thank you for your message.

Sorry to hear you seem to have some issues with the connectivity of your Ultimaker S5. 

There can be a few different reasons for this, let's see if we can find out where to look! 


Does your router have DHCP?


Does it support 2.4 Ghz? 


Does ethernet work? (using an internet cable) 


And just to check, how many wifi devices are active in your area?


Thank you!

    • "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.
