Although firmware and Wifi-Server are already flashed, I had a hard time configuring Wifi.
It took me 7 hours to figure out three simple things, that could've been mentioned in the Wiki or in the config.g file:

IP address: When you want to use DHCP, change config.g to M552 P0.0.0.0 ( config.g says ;use "0" for DHCP, so I tried it for hours with M552 P0 )

Router password ( WPA/WPA2). I logged in the DuetWiFi host and got a screen where I could put the password and name the printer, but after reboot it was again in host mode. I tried different routers and had success with one where the gateway was 192.168.0.1, while I tried the other routers with 192.168.1.111 without success. Once I got it working with one router, I tried to set the other to 192.168.2.111, just to be far away from the 192.168.1.xxx used by DuetWifi.
Still not working.
Why? The other routers were invisible, so even if you see the screen where you can put the password, you can try to find typos and use capitals, reconfigure the password with no success.
IMHO, the screen should show a warning like: no router found, or gray out the password field. A simple note in the wiki: make sure your router is visible, would have saved me some time.

I'm glad I got it working, but I hope others will read this before they get a heartattack...

That's normal, naturally the printer can't communicate with your PC while its firmware is being replaced, so it closes the USB port. After 30 seconds or so you should be able to reconnect. If you upgraded to version 1.18 from an earlier one and your PC runs Windows, you should install the new device driver as mentioned in the upgrade notes.
