[title] Setup Terminal Emulator
[* icon_note] To set up a WiFi network (WiFi or Ethernet) connection, we must use a terminal emulation program. This is because 3D printer host programs (such as [http://www.pronterface.com/|Pronterface]) send all characters in uppercase, and your WiFi settings (SSID and password ) are case sensitive.
[* black] Windows users: [https://sourceforge.net/projects/y-a-terminal/|Download YAT here.] Install YAT using default options. If for some odd reason YAT fails to communicate with the Duet, use [http://www.pronterface.com/|Pronterface].

[* icon_caution] If you get an error, ''Sorry, could not find a PTY.'' unplug the USB, plug it back in and try again.
[* icon_note] Some users have reported issues with YAT under Windows 8 not connecting properly. if YAT does not work try pronterface to confirm the computer can talk to the Duet
