    I have never heard of this issue before.  Maybe the wifi circuit is completely broken.  I'd contact your reseller.  They might want to see the logs.

    Strange.. It's an official reseller a new firstly used printer. Will contact them after the local holiday is over in here, maybe I am doing something wrong though?

    Hard to say, maybe the wifi card got loose in shipping? You're not doing something wrong. It is supposed to work without any other intervention beyond the UI switch. Reseller contact is best. Sorry for the troubles, just a momentary setback.

    I just managed to contact the reseller, he said that all ultimaker printers sold in israel are without the wifi card because the frequency of the wifi interffears with military bands.. So no wifi for me ?

    You are not missing much, it's pretty flaky at the moment.

     

    Is there anyway for you to plug the ethernet into some sort of device to convert it to WiFi?

    Personally i don't use the Wifi on mine, because right now it has to many drop outs where the printer still thinks its linked to my network but cura and the app don't find it. So I'm hard wired and get no problems at all now. I would say if you can have it hard wired, if not look at Wifi Bridge Dongles, that make a wifi bridge from the ethernet port.

    Oh ok, sounds like heavy measurements. I overheard that in the past sometimes modules were removed, but didn't know it was for that reason. Out of curiosity, does it mean almost no devices have wifi? Or are just certain frequencies / Ghz not allowed?

    No we have 2.4ghz and. 5ghz wifi here, no idea why the module in s5 is not allowed here..
