The developers of Duet, and the RepRapFirmware it uses, maintain an active documentation wiki and discussion forum. It is the best place to go to learn and ask questions. Familiarize yourself with the Duet Wifi and its capabilities on their Hardware Overview page.

Please see Prerequisites for using the Duet to make sure you have everything ready to go. Your Duet Wifi is preloaded with factory test firmware. Your D300VS will NOT work until you download and install current UltiBots-supported firmware. Follow the instructions for the latest version as detailed on the forum.

Make a note of the IP address assigned to your Duet in Step 11 of the Getting Connected to the Duet Wifi, you will need it to connect to your printer later. NOTE: Duet Wifi works on 2.4GHz only and does not like hidden networks.
