I’m attempting to connect to the enterprise network of my school. But have been unsuccessful in attempting to do so. I feel like I might not have up-to-date firmware. Could someone please let me know if my firmware is up-to-date?
I have successfully printed “a gift of good measure” using my phone as a hotspot.
I’ve seen the "Connecting to Enterprise Wi-Fi (beta) and the signal strength is good. I’ll have to check the network to see if we’re running 2.4 or 5 Ghz tomorrow. I can see our open unsecure public network that requires signing into a webpage (which from what I read won’t work with Glowforge).
Okay, so that’s the issue. We’re running a 5GHz enterprise network. I can see the unsecured public network because it is 2.4Ghz, but I can’t get on it because you have to sign in on a webpage.
Does the Glowforge have the ability to get onto a 5GHz network in the future with a firmware update or is the hardware missing from the machine to do this? It sounds like I might be running my Glowforge off my phone’s hotspot for the forseeable future.
Thanks, everyone, for the help. @edward.coyle, it sounds like you’re good to go, so I’m going to close this thread. I just wanted to leave you with the steps to find the MAC address of your Glowforge, in case you need them:
Reboot your Glowforge.
Wait at least 30 seconds, or until the Printer Head stops moving.
