WIFI works great - ethernet refuses to work


Recommended Posts

Posted · WIFI works great - ethernet refuses to work

Got the S5 bundle a coupe of weeks ago.  I'm able to get WiFi going, but I'm in the outskirts of our WiFi's signal so it's iffy.
When I try to enable the Ethernet, the little slide-button on the touchscreen goes green, then goes back off a half-second later.  No indication on what the issue is..  I verified the Ethernet is working by plugging it into my laptop so,  I'm stumped.
Is it possible to check the IP address?    My network is not using the typical usually seen with consumer stuff...  maybe that's the problem?

    Assuming your using Cura.

    Have you gone to preferences / printers / connect via network and activated it as a networked printer?


    Yes.  the problem isn't connecting - WiFi is working..    I've not been able to get the printer to enable hardwire Ethernet.
