Wifi

Smoothieboard v1 currently does not have a native Wifi interface.

However, it is possible to easily wake it Wifi-capable by connecting it's [/network Ethernet] interface to a simple Wifi/Ethernet bridge.

For example, [https://www.amazon.com/Extender-ProCIV-Multi-function-Wireless-N-Repeater/dp/B01G56D6A8/ref=sr_1_26?ie=UTF8&qid=1484955725&sr=8-26&keywords=wifi+ethernet+bridge this $15 Wifi/Ethernet bridge] will easily make your Smoothieboard Wifi-compatible.

For instructions, see the manual of the bridge you select.

This also generally has the advantage of being much more reliable and efficient than an “on-board” Wifi system which can be found on a few other CNC controller boards.
