I am a university student, so I brought my Bean to the university and connected it to the student residential network through ethernet. I had successfully printed with the machine a couple of times earlier on a home/personal network during the holidays, but now that I am back at my university I am having a hard time connecting to the printer interface.
Some things I noted:
- The personal network that did work didn’t let me use “kudo3d.local/”, I had to type in the IP address that was assigned to the printer by the network to get to the printer interface.
- I don’t have access to the university network’s connected devices’ IP addresses; at least not the same way I would on the personal network (by going into the router settings and finding it).
- The wireless repeater provided with the Bean is not proving to be helpful. The university requires a username and password with each device login, and the repeater, as far as I know, can’t connect to a network that needs that kind of information.
- I also thought I could use the repeater as a standalone router and have a network to use the bean with, but with no internet access. That didn’t work, but it could just be that I have no idea what I’m doing in that area.
- I knew this from the start, but the Bean itself can’t be connected to via ethernet. It was worth a shot though.
Any ideas on how I can get connected to my machine?
