I have been trying for over a week to get my Heltec Lorawan 32 (V2) to connect to a gateway. I did think it could be that I am too far away from the Gateway. Today I drove to just outside a place that shows one on the TTN Gateway Mapper.
I don’t know what to do next. Is there anyone in the Waikato that might be able to help talk me through it?
I have had someone check that I am entering the information from the TTN to the Arduino software and upload it. I didn’t think it was meant to be this hard
I was looking at the TTN indoor gateway as an option to do as you suggest. I don’t think anyone sells that unit here in NZ. Do you have a suggestion of an affordable gateway for testing? I did see somewhere that you can make a simple gateway which I think was using the same board I have. I think you could connect it to the TTN but not publicly
Happy to travel closer to a GW. I did check the one in Hamilton and it still seems to be up on the TTN Mapper
I use the Heltec CubeCell boards. I think for the Lora 32 V2 the LoraWAN examples are a bit different. You have to download the license key for the board to be able to use LoraWAN. I think there is an example that monitors the battery voltage.
The Heltec code normally takes the various TTN keys in MSB format.
It is unlikely that anything is wrong on the TTN side. Just make sure the settings your code match the device values in the TTN console.
It looks like in AU the TTN Community will be consolidating around AU915 from the V3 transition, with AS923 left as legacy and looking to ensure AS923 only GWs uplifted to dual mode where possible so may be worthwhile, at this point & before getting too invested in AS923, in NZ that you guys look to do the same. ?
