 +For wiring simply use the "Serial" port, see https://github.com/luc-github/ESP3D/wiki/Smoothieboard
 +
 +Also this project should allow one to use ESP3D with Smoothie's designed-for-Ethernet web interfaces, except now thanks to this they are wifi-compatible too: https://github.com/luc-github/smoothieware-webui-for-ESP3D If you test this and succed or fail, please report either to wolf.arthur@gmail.com so I can work on improving things. Thanks!!!

 +== Ethernet to Wifi
 +Smoothieboard v1 currently does not have a native Wifi interface. 
 +
 +However, it is possible to easily make 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.
