[title] Duet 2 EthernetEthernet/Maestro and Duet 2 Maestro3 standalone - Enable Ethernet Connection
[* black] '''This step is for Duet 2 EthernetEthernet/Maestro and MaestroDuet 3 (standalone) only!''' Plug an ethernet cable into the Duet's ethernet port and connect the other end of the cable to a free ethernet port on your router/network hub.
[* icon_caution] The Duet 2 Ethernet and Duet 2 Maestro come with a factory-configured fixed IP address for testing. This is unlikely to work for you setup!
[* black] So you need to change the network settings. There are two options:
[* black] '''DHCP:''' Most home routers are setup to assign IP addresses by DHCP. Send '''M552 S0''' to disable networking, then '''M552 S1 P0.0.0.0''' to enable networking and have your router assign an IP address.
[* black] '''Fixed Address:''' You can set the Duet to use a fixed IP address. Note that if you use a fixed address, care should be taken that it does not conflict with other devices on the network. Send '''M552 S0''' to disable networking, then '''M552 S1 Px.x.x.x''' to enable networking, where "x.x.x.x" is the IP address you want to use, eg 192.168.1.15.
[* black] In both cases, after 10-30 seconds the board should reply with '''Network running''' and the IP address the Duet is using. Send '''M552''' to check the settings.
[* icon_caution] Note: these network settings are temporary! They will be lost when you restart and will have to be re-entered. Step 10 and 11 explain how to set it up permanently.
[* icon_note] '''Mac users:''' Press CRTL-A and then CRTL-D to exit screen and return to terminal. You can safely close Terminal at this point.
