[* black] '''This step is for Duet 2 WiFi only!''' Use the command [[Gcode#Section_M587_Add_WiFi_host_network_to_remembered_list_or_list_remembered_networks|M587]] as shown below. The simple double quote characters are needed, but substituteneeded. Substitute the SSID and WiFi password for those of your own network.
[*
Once you press enter, wait for the 'ok' response. Send '''M587''' to get a list of remembered networks.

icon_note] Important: enterEnter the '''exact''' characters in theof your network SSID and password of your networkpassword, in the correct case, '''except''' that if your SSID contains an apostrophe then enter twocase. If you have apostrophe characters in its place. For example, if yourthe SSID or password, or you are not using YAT to communicate with the Duet and have upper and lower case letters, see the first note in the [[Gcode#Section_M587_Add_WiFi_host_network_to_remembered_list_or_list_remembered_networks|Gcode dictionary entry for M587]]. If you get an error, make sure the WiFi is '''Pete's network''' then enter "Pete''s network"in idle mode.

[* icon_note] Note: M587 saves the SSID and password to the Duet 2 Wifi. You do not need to run this command every time the board is started. M552 S1 starts the network, this command does need to be run every time the board starts (so ensure it is in config.g so it runs automatically - editing config.g will be covered later)
