Problem with ic880a or node


(Cybo12) #1

Hi everyone,

I’m an in troubles with my gateway(ic880a+Raspberry Pi), I have successfully connected my end node (rn2483+ Arduino Uno) One time successfully with OTAA and after I had :
“Join not accepted: denied
Check your coverage, keys and backend status.”

After that, I decided to switch for ABP connection and it’s was successful. I have all the time “Successful transmission” when I want to send something. But in these two options, I never receive something on my gateway (in TTN console). I have to check my several keys and so one. But my gateway has 0 packets receive again. The traffic page is blank on my gateway and on my application page. There is only my gateway in this place (sweet home campaign).

Can you help me, please?
(Sorry for my bad english)

RN2483 version: 1.03
Code: TheThingsNetwork -> TheThingsMessage -> Send

  • you see your gateway registered in your console ?

  • are you sure your home made node is working/build correctly ?

because RN2483 uses 3V3 and UNO uses 5V on the UART (need levelshifter) , also the TTN library is not for the arduino UNO but for the Arduino Leonardo.

So, maybe your gateway is working and connected to TTN (do you see other packets coming in… leave browser page open)

Yes, she is connected and uptime is good.

my code is this: https://pastebin.com/jXNCikZU
for connections:
TX ->10
RX ->11
RST ->12
3V3 -> 3V3
GND -> GND

I will search for levelshifter but it seams to be ok actually when i see serial logs.

Have you a library special for arduino UNO ? I have test RN2XX3 library with TheThingsUno - basic but i had always “Communication with RN2xx3 unsuccessful…”.

I never receive message on my gateway actually so I dont know if she’s working.

There is no other traffic at all at your (belgium) location ?
Leave your console gateway traffic window open for a longer time (if neccessary in a low traffic location an hour or so :wink:)

  • set your lora serial speed in your code lower because you use softserial !

If you don’t have other 100% working nodes its difficult to test and be sure your gateway is working 100%
(imagine you don’t connect an antenna… the gateway will show ‘connected’ to TTN but you won’t see any packets coming in - check that to, cable and antenna)

When you’re only lonely!

I understand, but it will be difficult for me to have a working node ^^". I’m going to test with levelshifter, take a long time on my console gateway traffic window and speed down my softserial :).

or order a cheap leonardo board maybe ?
