Hi guys,

Asus N16
Asus RT-AC87U
DLINK DIR-820L
DLINK DIR-612
TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND
DIR-868L
Buffalo G300N
Draytek Vigor 2920n
Netgear R7000

Failed:
Xiaomi WiFi


#2

Passed:
Linksys E2000, although the DHCP lease doesn’t show the Flux on the list of connected clients.


#3

Passed:
Archer C7

It’s also a really well reviewed Router - http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-wi-fi-router/

Passed: MiktoTik RB493AH

I use the Asus RT-N66R


#7

I use Apple Airport Extreme, it works very well, the FLUX printer is in another room 10 m away with a concrete wall between.


#8

I use a Netgear C6300 wifi cable modem at 1750AC wifi. I’m betting the flux connects on G band though. Kind of a bummer, but perhaps the module can be upgraded. Someday I’ll certainly tear into this thing to see what’s what. Gotta wait for the warranty to run out though.

I use Apple Airport Express and both windows and Mac version of Studio. No wifi problems.


#10

On a somewhat related note… I’m planning to use my FLUX at work a little bit, and we have all Cisco Enterprise grade gear.

Because of the way our network is set up, I need to register the MAC address of any device that can’t authenticate manually (can’t open a web browser on it and log in). How do I find my Flux’s MAC address so that I can register it and try to connect it?


#11

I have a linksys E2000 router to which my Flux Delta connects. When I opened the router page, selected status and client table, I found “raspberrypi” with an assigned IP address. That particular entry also shows the MAC address.

I suspect that you may be able to make a similar determination if you can connect to a router prior to your office connection.


#12

I would think you’d be able to determine your printer’s MAC address from the settings page of your home router. Write it down and take it with you. Easy peasy.

@Jimustanguitar @AmnNate Yeah, you should look at your DHCP leases on your home router, and you should see it in there. Alternately, you can take a Wireshark or tcpdump trace and look for the ARP requests for the printer’s IP address.

#20

I use ASUS RT-AC56U, but always gets wrong IP address.
The correct IP should be 192.168.0.xxx, instead it gets 192.168.201.100.
Any suggestion?
