Wait, I see my problem... Ethernet was turned off so I could use wifi to follow the guide.
Im an idiot it seems ok now...

Any good resources to follow to get that sorted? would like to use wifi to connect to internet simultaniously as using the mesa card. When ethernet is turned on and connected to mesa right now I cannot load a web page or pull anything from the internet or my lan. Already put in a bunch of work to patch the drivers for the usb wifi adapter im using

you missed quite a few things from the conversion doc, need to go back through it diligently and make sure its all correct. if you have wrong paths and missing or incorrect lines you will have problems. 99% of the issues of install are not setting up configs correctly.

as for the wifi, here is a good reference document on setting up both ethernet for the card and wifi:

The stuff I left out was due to not installing utilizing the automatic tool changer if im not mistaken. It all seems to be running as to be expected more or less. I can read through it again to see what else I missed.

I am noticing though that the "use this connection only for resources on its network" setting when changed greys out the "apply" button and it will not stick to the setting. Have retried setting up the network configuration for the mesa but I cant apply settings when that connection box is checked.

You are mistaken.. probe basic uses subroutines heavily and you've failed to connect your subroutines in the ini,  the hal file edits have errors,  go through it again line by line and double check your work!

Okay great thanks so much for all your input! I ended up sorting out the wifi issues tonight and I think the hal and ini are sorted for now. Waiting on a mouser order to come in with some hardware to get it plugged and tested. Still need to do the ball screw conversion on the mill.

Do the hal and ini look better?

looks better, is probe basic opening now?
if so what is on the status page? trying to determine which version of probe basic you have installed and if it is the latest master or a previous tagged version, it will determine if the post gui hal file is correct.

Yes sir everything is working okay. Even before those hal and ini file fixes it was working. A screenshot of the status window is linked below. Ive even got it running the steppers using the conversational window. Having a latency error come up so thats next step getting it working reliably. Even after the issue the gcode continues to run just fine. Project for tomorrow me.

Ok so you need to change the post gui hal file call in the ini to match what is in the configuration folder for probe basic, i think it's probe basic post gui hal, but check the sim folder and make sure it's in your current configuration.  It's for the latest version which appears you have installed.
