Giood day all

 

Why??

 

Took me 20 minutes to try and setup a wifi connections and still not successful.

 

I have five 5 Bambu CX1's and took me two minutes to setup.

 

Unhappy Ultimaker client with 2 x S5's that is now stored under my desk.

    Are they under warranty?  A lot of things can go wrong in shipping.  Perhaps the wifi antenna or something fell out and just needs to be reconnected.

     

    I'm sure you can find someone to buy the S5s.

    From experience S5 machines work much more reliably over wired ethernet with reserved IP addresses, wouldn't bother with wifi on these machines especially if you have more than one and use digital factory!

    Can confirm this. Out of  our 12 UM2C's, four have network issues. Common response from the retailer; we would have to box up the machines and send them in for repair. I suspect a common design/engineering issue. 

    Switching to Bambu Lab.

    Bambu Lab machines don't have ethernet which is annoying and I think the wifi is 2.4ghz only like Ultimaker. I am sure the wifi setup is much more straight forward on Bambu lab though!
