Honestly, I think it’s best just to wait for the router tomorrow now.

That would be the easiest…

You could try your commands with /usr/bin/sudo

Something in your path is hosed up…

Do you think this could cause me grief elsewhere later on? I wonder if this is why it keeps showing my phone as being connected in Finder even though I’ve ejected it a million times.

Definitely going to just wait for the router though

If you have issues setting it up or making it work … sing out…

Success! Finally

Thanks again for everything Jack

Did you get connected via wifi?

If so, great, glad you’re up and running…


Mark the thread solved if that’s the case…

Take care

Like you, I have read that some people with M1 macs have been able to connect via USB. I was successful connecting with my xtool. Once I picked up my OMTech 80 watt, I have never connected via usb again. At the same time, I can connect to the camera on the laser via usb just fine.

So, my recommendation, do one of two things. First, connect via an Ethernet cable directly to the laser. Second, buy an inexpensive Wi-Fi range extender. Configure it to connect to your home Wi-Fi network. Hook your laser via cable to the range extender.

There are a couple of good articles on the details, but that’s the gist of it.

Sorry, I wrote all of that and must have hit post before I read the entire thread. I was basically going to recommend the router/range extender. I like the usefulness of the Wi-Fi connection. You don’t have to be plugged in and sitting right next to the machine. Good luck.
