Ultimaker Cura 4.6 messing with my laptop network


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Cura 4.6 messing with my laptop network

Good day all,


When I run Cura to slice models to print, I immediately experience network issues. This happens for Cura versions 4.6, 4.7 and 4.8. 


Upon launching Cura, I experience network issues. Issue are as listed:

1. Wifi disconnects immediately

2. Wifi connected has no connection (no internet) - youtube does not load, speed test does not work

3. Wifi network cannot search for wifi connections available

4. Wifi card deactivated and not running - needs to be manually restarted

5. Reconnecting to wifi when  Cura is running results in constant disconnection/disconnecting and connection drops


Please advice or help on any way around this? Is there any way to remove Cura's access to the network, network card or etc.

I understand that this is an isolated incident with myself, even on Reddit and other forums.


Thank you.

    I'm new here but I used cura for a while now.

    I have the same problem as Ironmen21, it is becoming quite frustrating now. Every time I open cura my internet connection becomes really unstable as described before. I tried everything but nothing has worked, not even with updates.

    Anything that I should know?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi everyone! Yesterday I had some spare time and i tried once again to resolve this problem and I think i did!

    As it was suggested before the problem was a plugin found in the marketplace. I basically disabled every plugin used to connect to a printer either via USB or Wifi since I use cura exclusively as a slicer. That did it for me, but I know some people use these features and I'm afraid I can't help. Thanks everyone.
