I am having a gateway registered with TTN for a few days and in the meanwhile also a couple of devices running some test data. I am having trouble most of the time to see any traffic in the TTN console for my gateway and the same goes for the device data. I have been reading that in some cases issues can come up with NAT and non ideal handling of UDP traffic. Since I can I have removed that problem entirely and my GW has a public IP address now. I still have the same issue, No or only sporadic traffic and data shown on the TTN Console.
GW: Mikrotik wAP LoRa with 6.5dB Omni, EU 868 channel plan. Console shows it connected and last seen is usually around 30 sec max. over 2000 received messages.
2x TTGO LoRa32 T3 v1.6 (there are other designations for the same board), Using the lmic library example code for ABP, sending a few bytes payload every 1min on one device, every 5 min on the 2nd device. Expecting one to go over the FUP limits and the other not.
I can see the Received Messages counter on the Console for my GW clock up every time my devices send a message btw.
I can see both devices do connect to the gateway and I can see data from both devices sporadically in the console. Yesterday I have even seen the data for approx 2h coming in. As it stands right now i see no data for device 1 and only one line of data for device 2 from approx 30 min ago. The GW logs and traffic view does confirm that data was actually send.
I have tried different browsers, different computers, in Firefox I have tried private window and normal.I am at a loss here and can not figure out what is wrong here.
Any suggestions and help is appreciated.
PS: Just a word re this forum. LoRa is not exactly a beginner friendly thing to get into. Adding this somewhat obscure limitation to the forum that prevents ppl from posting here for x minutes is beyond frustrating especially if one is not familiar with this particular forum system and tried to find the “new topic” button for ever.
