WiFi? What WiFi???

Posted · WiFi? What WiFi???

hiya all,

 

am raging at the moment.  

the firmware update fails to verify every time.  I have tried to follow the instructions but the supposed interim firmware isn't even available on the USB stick even though its on it. 

 

I have tried to connect to my wifi but sits there telling me that it's creating a hotspot.  I even watched a movie waiting for it to do so but did't even spill out an error.

 

I have the bontech upgrade which is awesome but because I tried to resolve the WiFi issue by doing a factory reset, those settings are gone.  so now I am stuck, I can't access the firmware to change the E-steps per mm. (and no i didn't mess up the firmware as it was working fine and steps were adjusted ages ago. 

 

So dear friends I seek your help on this matter.

    Connect your printer with a network cable directly to a computer. If that computer is not too old the network card should be able to act as some kind of DHCP server together with the OS so your printer should be able to obtain an IP address and most important a time stamp. That time stamp will allow the firmware update to work again properly. Don't worry for future updates; Ultimaker has skipped that check again.

    As for the infinite time to set up the Wifi, I had that once on my UM3. Factory reset did not fix it so I had to recover the firmware. You can find instructions here:

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
