Nights like this one are when I wish that:
- The Glowforge also had LAN capabilities, I mean a $30 raspberry pi has it, but a $6000 machine doesn’t?
- That it wasn’t only cloud based.
I get it, I love the machine when it works, and I don’t usually have these complaints, but this is the second time in two weeks where the machine was rendered unusable because it refuses to connect to WiFi. It worked the first half of the day, but then when I went to use it again later, the GFUI said that it was offline, even though I hadn’t turned it off yet. I can’t say when exactly it happened, but it was sometime after a print and after it had gone idle. The last time it was in the morning before I could do anything with it.
Every other device that connects to my internet is working, I’m literally typing this on my iPad, but the glowforge refuses to connect. I’ve been around the forum long enough to know the basic troubleshooting such as turning it off and leaving it off and unplugged for at least 30 minutes, resetting my modem/router. I even reconnected the machine through the soft reset and setup.glowforge site, but still nothing.
I’m sure it’ll be back in the morning, this may have happened twice recently but these aren’t the only times I’ve run into this problem. Just frustrated is all, and irked that literally nothing but time will fix this problem no matter how much I wave my fists at the dang thing. Hope everyone else is having a smooth time, I know the other regulars don’t tend to have these sorts of problems, so you guys are probably definitely doing good
Anyway just thought I would vent to people who understand these issues, ya know?
