Ethernet connection to N1 printer.

Postby Deepspaceobject » Sat Jul 21, 2018 3:08 pm

Since the last firmware update and also IdeaMaker update I can no longer connect to my N1 printer via ethernet from IdeaMaker, but I can from the printer to the ethernet? It was working fine before the update.

Thank you.

How was your speeds before? It seemed common for the Ethernet to connect but not be working very well, just ok. There has been an advanced configuration setting added in the Ethernet settings so that you can slowdown the Ethernet which will actually speed up the Ethernet since the Processor in the touch screen has a bug that doesn’t handle 1Gb Ethernet speed very well. Slow it down to 100Mb and it works much better. You can read more about it here: viewtopic.php?t=8489

My guess is that is your issue and can get solved by adjusting the speed of your router and printer.

Hi Alex,
Where do I actually make the change to the Ethernet speed? there is no option to change it on the touch screen of the printer.

Thanks,

Brian

If you have the latest firmware there is a wrench in the bottom right corner of the Ethernet settings screen. That give you the options for the Ethernet. See “Added Auto Negotiation, Port Speed, Duplex Mode as advanced settings for Ethernet tuning under Ethernet setting page” a bit down on the first post of this thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8439

Hi Alex,
Many thanks it is now working fine after the Touch upgrade to 0.9.11.612.

Glad to hear it helped! Not sure about yours but our printer is now MUCH faster at 100Mbps than it ever was at 1Gbps.
