Thanks for your help in this thread!
I agree that it cannot have spent too much time trying because I begin getting this ‘error’ immediately after every 2 failed activation attempts.
Just for a little back story, I downgraded the firmware back to what it was and I am able to connect via OTAA after 2-20 attempts but I also have a decent amount of data loss (50%) sometimes while I also receive nearly 100% at other times. Not sure if this is the node or the gateway because, unfortunately, I don’t have another node to test with right now, but have some on order.
Haha, I did update the keys.
With the upgraded firmware, I would see some activation packets received by TTN but the node would never get an acknowledgement and actually connect. With the old firmware, since it is able to try continuously it will connect but I wouldn’t say it is consistent or reliable by any means.
Is this experience common with LoRa in general, or just the RisingHF products?
