Prerequisites for using the Duet

Duet Wifi ¶ 

In order to set up and use the Duet WiFi and control it via WiFi, you will need the following equipment:

  • A network which includes a WiFi access point.
    • The DuetWifi operates at 2.4Ghz not 5 Ghz. Most Wifi networks have both these frequencies, sometimes as separate network names.
  • A computer connected to the network, with an available USB port, and a micro USB cable (supplied with the Duet).
  • A computer, tablet or smartphone with WiFi client capability (this could be the same as the previous item, or a different device).
  • A 3D printer with accessible cabling, for the Duet WiFi to control.

Duet Ethernet ¶ 

In order to set up and use the Duet Ethernet and control it via the network, you will need the following equipment:

  • A network which includes an Ethernet switch or hub with a free port. Alternatively a network cable can be used directly between a computer and the Duet Ethernet.
  • A computer connected to the network, with an available USB port, a micro USB cable (supplied with the Duet).
    • This computer could be connected to the network via Wifi or Ethernet. After the initial setup over USB then any device connected to the network that runs a compatible web browser can be used (e.g a smartphone or tablet) to control the Duet.
    • Chrome and Firefox definitely work well with DuetWebControl, Edge, IE and Safari may have problems.
  • A 3D printer with accessible cabling, for the Duet WiFi to control.
