School Wifi requires Username and Password

Recommended Posts

I've tried to setup my Ultimaker 3 at my school but our wifi requires a username (student number) and a password. When I start to setup the wifi on the Ultimaker 3, it only asks for a password for the network. If I type that in, nothing really happens. It just connects forever and never leaves the connecting screen. Is there a way to sign in with the Ultimaker with a username and password?

You could talk to your IT department.  

 

When you connect with your phone or laptop the first time, it asks for your username and password on a webpage, right?  The UM3 does not know how to talk to web pages.  It isn't set up that way.  It doesn't have a web browser.

 

Usually you can provide the IT department with a MAC address and have them make an exception for that MAC address.  Or you could try to plug the UM3 into a wired network (instead of wireless).

 

Or you can just use the USB flash drive which works quite well.

    • "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.
