UM3 WiFi Connection Failure


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM3 WiFi Connection Failure

I am having trouble connecting my UM3 to my WiFi.  I go to Systems>Network>Run WiFi Setup and it creates a WiFi Network.  I connect to the created network on my phone or computer and click "Start WiFi Setup". I name the printer "UM3-5" ,  then select the my local WiFi network and enter the WiFi password. The UM3 reports "Connected". WiFi is selected on the Network Menu.

Now I go to Cura and try to Add the Printer. Today it can't seem to find the UM3 when I click refresh.  Other days it works?  Even when it's working, it seems that when I leave it off for a few days I must go through this hit or miss process of resetting up WiFi.

What am I doing wrong?

    I have the same issue for years. The Wi-Fi connection is just lost sometimes. The Wi-Fi module of UM3 seems very unstable. I don't know it is a firmware or hardware issue. But it is really troublesome to me, I can't use network to send print or check the printing status.


    A long time ago, I sent the UM3 to Ultimaker reseller to fix the issue. They said Ultimaker will fix this issue in future firmware release. But it is still not fixed yet.
