    I have been having an issue with my Workbee where, despite putting M3 and M5 into my Gcode, I need to start and stop my router before running my code otherwise it doesn't turn on when the program is run. I have the black box connected to the IOT switching relay power and my router plugged into the normally off plug. I have had a few different tools plugged in this way. is there something else I need to add to my code or is turning the router on and off before running the only way to get it to trigger in the code?

    thanks

    Did you forget the S-word?

    For example, if $3=1000, you want M3S1000
