I have a TTIG that has been working for the past few months, and has now suddenly stopped.
The gateway was unplugged from it’s power source 12 days ago (when it was last online on TTN console), however after plugging it back in yesterday it has not returned online.
It’s current behaviour is:
flashes green with 1s period for a varying number of flashes, then goes solid green for 3ish seconds, followed by a rapid green/red flash, then starts the cycle again (green freq 1/s, solid green 3 seconds, etc…).
According to the table on https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/docs/gateways/thethingsindoor/ , this would mean it is attempting to connect to wifi for a short period of time, then somehow immediately connected to wifi and LNS backend for about 3 seconds, skipping the middle stage, then suddenly scanning WiFi networks & setting up Config AP. Surprisingly I don’t think it’s likely that this is actually what is happening…
Things I have tried so far:
Searching extensively on the forums and elsewhere. Some people reported similar behaviour at TTIG launch, but these issues were quickly fixed by backend or automatic firmware updates a long time ago. All other issues I can find are not the same and show different behaviour. Suggested fixes in those threads don’t seem to work anyway.
Resetting & reconfiguring the gateway multiple times using the set up protocol and gui
Moving the gateway with respect to the WiFi access point
Removing and re-registering the gateway on TTN console. (I did not try this until later on as I briefly read it could mess things up. Not sure if there’s any credibility to that as it seems to have had no effect to the console entry, which has relinked to the gateway information).
All documented button actions for the gateway (All three of them I could find)
Unpowering and repowering the gateway many times, with varying periods between
Just leaving it for 12 hours…
Has anyone had any similar behaviour? Is this out of my hands or am I making a very basic and silly mistake?
