I do not have registered gateway but it says gateway already exists

Hello everyone
I have the same problem with my gateway.
It was the first gateway I configured in TTN and as it was not working I deleted it. Then, I realized what the problem was and fixed it. I was able to configure other gateways but could not reconfigure the deleted gateway.
Please, I need you to reset the EUI of this gateway: a8404118fc08ffff. I have tried to connect this gateway with the EUI a8404118fc08aaff, but it does not work.
Thanks

BTW usual convention is for ffff (or more typically fffe) to be used for the middle order bytes…if extending a MAC Addr to create an EUI…

Thank you.
I followed the wiki.dragino instructions where they recommend putting ffff at the end of the MAC address for the gateway ID.

No gateway is registered with EUI a8404118fc08ffff, so you should be able to register one with that EUI just fine.

Just remember ID is NOT EUI and vice versa!

Thank you very much. I have tried to register the device again and finally it appears connected.

Yes, I understand the difference. Thank you.

Hi, I’m trying to claim a gateway, but when I try and submit, it says that the EUI is not registered.

Claim is only for TTIG. Is your gateway a TTIG? For other gateways use ‘Add gateway’.

Hi thanks for the response. I managed to sort it out.

The problem I currently have is that Im trying to send a “hello world” message to the gateway, but the message coming across isn’t in hexdecimal format. I’m not sure how to fix it

Just responded to similar query, see response here, it may inspire:

At some point someone will come along and tell you that sending text is very inefficient. They will be incorrect. It’s HUGELY inefficient. But you are just running a test sketch for now, but something to consider changing.

Hi I’ve tried to do a Base64 decode, but didn’t help. This is the uplink message that the gateway receives, I hope this helps you identify where I am going wrong.

That’s a gateway “I received an uplink” message.

It’s NOT a device uplink message. You need to look at the application or device data. Which implies some reading of the docs would help - linked bottom-right on the console.

Gud Evening Sir I have Registered my gateway in The things network But It shows not connected so I deleted the gateway from my account and added it but it shows gateway id is already taken.How can I recover it Sir??

My Gateway EUI is B8 27 EB FF FF 34 1E 46

That is Gateway EUI (RPi build?) NOT Gateway ID - this is something you can choose based on own needs vs immutable EUI…e.g. Gateway ID = jeffsnextfantasticttngw or gwinnorthofficeblockxyz - just choose something that others may not have used/thought of gateway ID = mygateway or ttngw1 may well have been used by someone else!

Problem is not with the gateway id name sir, I have mistakenly deleted the gateway… how can I add my existing gateway again sir?

You cant

Add it again with a new Gateway ID (name)?..

Ok sir Thank you Sir

I have created again sir…Thank you so much sir for your Guidance sir
