Hello from California!
I am having nothing but trouble. I have 2 of the Kickstarter TTN Gateways. I tried them on FW 1.0.0 and they both would not connect. So I updated to 1.0.3 with the SD card (verified that they update to 1.0.3 here: http://things-gateway.local/info) When I am setting up each gateway, they usually either get stuck in LED Pattern “connecting to the internet” or “still activating”. Though I have seen every non-documented LED light pattern imaginable (blinking on LED1 only, fast blinking on LED4 with all other LEDs ON, etc) . Sometimes they get into the reboot every 5 seconds or so loop, but usually not.
I have tried pushing the pink button, holding the pink button when powering the gateway up. Holding the pink button for 5 seconds.
What is really weird is I had success at first. One of my gateways connected for about 2 minutes and showed connected in the Console.
I am trying to connect over ethernet and over wifi. I am in California so have chosen Frequency Plan: United State 915 MHz (I feel like I had slightly more success when in desperation I tried Europe 868 MHz instead to see if the problem was that something in the USA was down)
I have not had any success for about a week of trying this when I have time.
Thanks for any help you can provide (I must be missing something). Id be especially interested in knowing if there are others with TTN Kickstarter gateways in the USA that are having trouble.
P.S.: I have previous experience with a TTN Gateway working: I connected a gateway in Europe that I bought from Newark and it connected right away and worked fine. So I know it can be done.
