TTIG does not connect to TTN

My gateway is registered on V2 and V3. the lamp is solid green, indicating that it is connected to TTN, but I do not see any traffic.
Can anyone see my gateway on the network ???
thank you in advance

Again, please search the forum for information. These questions have already been asked and answered many times.

please understand us too, when we read that, “Not seen gateway status on ttn - The Things Network”, how do you want us to find our way
V2? V3 ?, works? , does not work ?
registered, but status not visible.
I read lots of topics that go in all directions

For V3 the console is reliable but that currently won’t help for TTIG.
For V2 the console unfortunately is not reliable (and won’t get fixed). This can be annoying.

The only thing that is reliable for V2 is to ‘grab the data’ from your application via one of the avalable integrations or via MQTT.

For instance you can use a Mosquitto MQTT client on your computer and subscribe to MQTT topics/messages of your TTN application. That way you can see if data is arriving in your application or not and you should be able to check by which gataways a message was received.

There possibly are easier ways. Maybe others have some better suggestion.

There is a free conference on May 28 where the V2 to V3 migration will be an important topic. Hopefully more details about when TTIG’s can be connected/migrated to V3 will be provided during the conference (see the pinned conference topic for more information).

The v2 console for gateway traffic is generally OK but the gateway status is definitely not to be relied on - if you need to check if your gateway is online, look for traffic!


I don’t have any traffic, and I don’t know what to do to get one
see screenshot with the gateway configuration views
all the tutorials for configuring the TBMH100 gateway are intended for V3 and not for V2, so I don’t see how I should do it
thanks for you hepl

First, let’s not share all your scans via DropBox to the world

Drag & drop an image if it’s an image, if it’s text, please copy & paste.

You will need to use the TTIG v2 docs to set it up on v2.

The ONLY place you will see traffic will be on the v2 gateway traffic tab.

Just leave v3 out of your mind for now.

Just build a “canary” that transmitts some infomation in regular intervals. I use a Dragino LHT65 in TTN V3 for this.

I have the same problem. Green solid led, but console shows disconnected…

Search the forum or even, maybe just maybe, read the related topic you found before adding to it for the answers.

And do not double post.


I bought a TTIG 868 gateway. I followed the procedure for connecting to my wifi network, but for 2 hours, the LED is slowly blinking Green / Red. I thought about updating the firmware, but 2h maybe too much isn’t it?

Thank you for your help.

Having connected to your local network have you then registered it in the V3 TTN? Console → Gateways → Claim Gateway (note NOT Add Gateway) - code needed is the WiFi code…

I have not yet connected my gateway to TTN, I thought that I had to first have the green LED (fixed) before doing the necessary on TTN V3 …

Essentially the first thing a TTIG does once connected to the internet is pull a configuration/setup file from a CUPS server that has embedded the configuration information you have set up in the Console…the flashing red/green suggests that is what it is trying to do… once this is done it’s is seconds/minutes to come on line and show as connected if correctly claimed :+1 :slight_smile:
