* Use [[Gcode#Section_M552_Set_IP_address_enable_disable_network_interface|M552]] S1 to turn on networking, and connect. You can specify the host network to connect to using the 'P' parameter, so long as the host network has already been stored using M587.

* If you are using a PC that is connected to both your network and to the Duet, you can bridge the two network connections on your PC, to allow other devices connected to your network to connect to the Duet. This will only work when the PC is on, though.

This is the standard setup for a Duet with a wired Ethernet port, and the set up is covered in the [guide|7|Getting Connected|stepid=20] guide. The Duet is connected by a cable directly to the network router (though you could connect the Duet to a wired to wireless access point, and then connect that wirelessly to the router's WiFi). The Duet can have its IP address set by DHCP by the router, or set a static IP address in config.g.

* Then connect to the Duet by opening a browser and going to 192.168.2.2
* If you are using a PC that is connected to both your network and to the Duet, you can bridge the two network connections on your PC, to allow other devices connected to your network to connect to the Duet. This will only work when the PC is on, though.

Note: Both the mDNS and NetBIOS name are limited to 15 characters. If you use a longer name, the mDNS name will be the first 15 characters, e.g. if the Duet name is "3DPrinterWithVeryLongName", you should still be able to connect to "3DPrinterWithVe.local".
