I notice that in some nets Join process has low probability of success because RAK firmware use SF7 datarate when join, and can be much successful if use SF12. Sadly current firmware dont allow us to modify that.
Thanks Fomi, but that tutorial is for a 833 mounted in a PCIe /SPI to USB adaptor then connected to a raspi usb port. Nothing really related to the EVB board where we can mount the RAK833 with an already specific gateway HW design including the RAK634 for Wifi b/g/n and rest of components like LAN /WAN Eth ports, serials debugs etc.
Ive bough this EVB because of this design, not really interested in a raspi solution. the RAK 831 is for that more convenient and supported.
So do you have any timeframe where we can have OpenWRT with the lora module working as a TTN GW on this RAk833 /RAK634 EVB board?
I made a duplicate sd (and some backups) and stopped the Loriot gateway after booting the duplicate.
There was no uninstall.sh although they mentioned it.
I manually moved/renamed the /opt/lrt and rebooted.
The TTN gateway was easy to install with the link you provided.
I can swap the sd cards now to choose the network Loriot or TTN.
We made same testing but pls note we put the antenna in vertical position on table. The performance should be fine.pls see the snapscreen! Can we resend an antenna to you for testing again if you like?
@audorva Well, that's not too easy to answer. If you got a good rssi (singal strength) but much noise (low snr), you won't receive anything. Same if you got no noise (good snr) but the signal is too low (bad rssi). You can look at the link budget for a hint.
