Weedo X40 WiFi Setup
The Weedo X40 printer is equipped with a WiFi connection via the webcam. With the WiFi connection, not only the photos/videos from the webcam can be viewed in the LAN, but gcode data can also be uploaded. A 4GB Flash is installed for this purpose, in which the data is stored.
The wireless network module supports the 802.11b/g/n standard. The WiFi connection is limited to the 2.4GHz frequency range. The module controls the AP (Access Point) and STA (Station) mode.
A smartphone, tablet or laptop with WiFi is required to establish the connection!
- Turn on the printer and search for the Wifi webcam with your SmartPhone, tablet or laptop. The name of the webcam consists of "WIFICAM" and the serial number of the printer.
- Connect your SmartPhone, Tablet, WIFI PC to the printer.
Start a browser and enter the following address in the input line: http://10.10.0.1:88/
Then you can access to the WiFi network management page.
Scan the WLAN with Network Management. Click on your network name, enter your WiFi password, and wait for a moment, WIFICAM will try to connect to the network.
- After the WLAN connection to your router has been established, the IP address is shown on the printer display.
After you have established the WLAN connection with your router, it is helpful to be able to address the printer using a suitable name. With AVM routers and many other manufacturers, you can assign a name to the dynamic IP address.
If you give the printer IP address the name "Weedo-X40", then the webcam will also work immediately with our OctoPi distribution without any changes.
If you cannot assign a name to the IP address in the router, you should assign a static IP address to the printer so that you do not have to look for the IP address every time the printer is restarted.
