[title] Check your Firmware Version
[* blue] Windows users:

By this point, your computer should be connected and talking to your Duet. You may have received a number of messages from the Duet already; it's generally safe to ignore these for now. The Duet uses 'G-codes' to communicate. See the [[Gcode|G-code dictionary here]] for a full list and description.
[* blue] If you have a '''Duet 2 Wifi''', you may find you are getting a lot of messages like ''"WiFi reported error: no known networks found"''. The default configuration turns on the WiFi, but it is not finding a network to connect to. To stop the WiFi, send '''M552 S-1''' (see [[Gcode#Section_M552_Set_IP_address_enable_disable_network_interface|M552]] in the G-code dictionary).
[*
red] AfterTo check the COM port has been configuredDuet's firmware version, send command '''M115''' to the Duet boardboard (see [[Gcode#Section_M115_Get_Firmware_Version_and_Capabilities|M115]] in the G-code dictionary).
[* yellow] The Duet will returnrespond with the firmware version being used.

[* blackicon_note] Once you know the firmware version your Duet is using, check for the latest version of the firmware in our [https://github.com/dc42/RepRapFirmware/releases/|Githubhttps://github.com/Duet3D/RepRapFirmware/releases|Github repository here]. Use the 'Latest release', not any 'pre-release', 'beta' or 'RC' version until you are familiar with Duet.
[* blackicon_note] If your Duet is using an old firmware version, we recommend upgrading. See [[Installing and Updating Firmware|Installing and Updating Firmware]] documentation.
