[title] Duet 2 Ethernet and Duet 2 Maestro - Enable Ethernet Connection
-[* black] ***DHCP.***If you have setup the Duet 2 Ethernet to use DHCP then when the network is enabled it will look for a DHCP server to allocate an address. Most home routers are setup to assign addresses by DHCP.
- [* black] Send the command "M552 S1" to the board.
- [* black] After about 30 seconds, the board should reply with ***Network running*** and the IP address that the Duet has been assigned.
-[* black] ***Fixed Address*** If you have used a fixed IP address in config.g then when the network is enabled the Duet 2 Ethernet will use that address. Note that if you use a fixed address, care should be taken that it does not conflict with other devices on the network.
-[* icon_caution] The Duet 2 Ethernet and Duet 2 Maestro come with a factory configured fixed address used during testing. This address will probably not work with your network and may cause conflicts. It is recommended to enable DHCP when using the [https://configurator.reprapfirmware.org/|RepRapFirmware configurator]to generate your configuration file.
+[* black] 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.
