[title] Ensure Future Connectivity
[* icon_note] We need to be sure the networking is configured properly for the future.
[* blue] Navigate to config.g (which is the Duet configuration file) by clicking:
[* black] System > config.g
[* black] In the older version of DWC, click Settings > System Editor > config.g
[* blue] Check that there is a command '''M552 S1''' without a semicolon in the beginning. This sets the wifi or ethernet module to enabled.
[* blue] If you have a '''Duet 2 WiFi''' or '''Duet 3 Mini 5+ WiFi''', this is sufficient to enable networking and let your network router assign an IP address via DHCP. If you need to assign a static IP address, use '''M587''' with the '''I''' parameter when setting up the SSID in [guide|7|Step 9|stepid=10]. See [[Gcode#Section_M587_Add_WiFi_host_network_to_remembered_list_or_list_remembered_networks|M587 in the G-code dictionary]].

[* icon_note] Commands in config.g are processed from top to bottom, so a command at the bottom supersedes a command at the top of the file.
[* icon_note] This version of the config.g configuration file will be replaced in the next section of the instructions. This version will be used for now, so making these changes will enable you to access the Duet until you do replace the config.g with a version that is more tailored for your machine.
