I am posting this because it caused me a great deal of distress.
My setup went as outlined in the manual, however the next day…
On my second power-up the GF did its welcome dance and stopped, no light on the big button, nothing on the WiFi spectrum showing a GF router. nada - nothing.
My first thought, Oh God it died! Time to load it up in the cardboard coffin and ship it back to California.
The trick is the GF does not show the light after connection to the WiFi router nor does it open it’s own router connection. It is just available on your app.glowforge.com, nor did the app show “ready” next to my GF.
Duh, you have to load something to print before anything happens!
Hope this saves your major internal organs from some stress.
