The first Lorawan gateway I ever purchased (about 2 years ago) was The Things Gateway. In the past it has been totally solid. However, over time it seems it has become more problematic.
I apologize if this has been covered already. “The Things Gateway” issues are somewhat hard to search for, as the words are so commonly used.
Over the past few months I have had it connected over ethernet and it just stops working at all. This is usually resolved by power cycling. While it’s acting up I can easily access it using its local IP, but I cannot really see what’s going on.
To clarify, it’s not just showing as “not connected.” It’s actually not relaying any Lorawan traffic in either direction at all. Today it stopped working after just a few hours. I plugged in another gateway and the nodes were there and ready to go.
Thank you all for your help and unending insights!
