Cura not connected to printer (wifi) (tired of walking by USB stick to printer)


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura not connected to printer (wifi) (tired of walking by USB stick to printer)

I have an UM5 (latest firmware) connected to Cura (4.13.1) via wifi. It worked fine for the past 4 weeks after I moved my office, but it has now stopped.

 

1. I have rebooted the router, computer, and printer.

2. I tried to connect the printer within Cura.

 

I'm not sure what to do or what to try. Can anybody give me some advice on how to get the purple smoke to work again?


Thanks,

Tim

    Sometimes it helps a lot when you give your printer a fixed IP address. Then you have also the possibility to configure the printer manually in Cura with that IP and avoid the auto detection which could fail sometimes.
