Despite being tech savvy I am somewhat at a loss to finish what by all accounts is a simple step: setting up my Glowforges Wi-Fi. The process was smooth and quick up to this point in the instructions:
5: Connect to Your Glowforge Unit’s Wi-Fi
Your Glowforge is now broadcasting a special Wi-Fi channel so you can connect to it and finish setting it up. Follow the instructions on screen to connect to your Glowforge unit’s Wi-Fi.
I’m using my laptop so I simply swapped it over and told it to connect to the temporary Wi-Fi AP that I see. After that, I see nothing. I’m not prompted for anything.
I did try connecting using my phone in Airplane mode. Same thing there.
I did scan the Glowforge and only see it just running a PPP daemon and nothing else. So Im wondering what secret handshake I am missing or forgot.
I did watch the “We made a little video…” from Jan 21 and they appeared to have the same issue. Unfortunately they glossed over it with “What happened at this point was a fairly painless 4 minute process to connect the Glowforge to WIFI”. I sure wish the camera had been looking over their shoulder at this point since thats the exact issue Im stuck trying to get past.
I scanned the FAQ and looked around but I seem to be the only person who asked about this. Guess that makes me special although probably not in a good way. Can anyone help me with this last step??
