I’ve just activated our first "TheThings gateway (backer edition). I want to set it up in our University teaching lab to support student projects, but it would not activate on the University network (3 solid lights, 4th flashing, which incedentally is not described during the setup process). In the end, I had the bring the device home and connect over my home broadband,where it activated first time.
This suggests the device is not going to work at the university without network changes, which I am now going to have to request. I might also need permission to use it on the JANET network.
Does anyone know what information I need to provide our networking team to get this working in a corporate environment. I appreciate this is a vague question, but this is all rather new to us.
Does anyone else have experience setting up a Things Gateway in a UK university?
