Feather M0 RFM60HCW (433Mhz) - can't connect to gw



  • Hi,

    I've used a setup of ESP32 + Adafruit RFM69HCW modules to do some sensor logging and it's been working fine.
    Now, I'm trying to replace one of my ESP32 nodes for a Feather M0 RFM69HCW but I can't get it working with my GW (the GW work fine with other nodes).
    I've tried 2 separate Feather nodes as well, to eliminate any HW problem.
    Any help appreciated 😐

    Here's the log output:

  • Are you using the new driver on the gateway also?



  • @Alpoy said in Feather M0 RFM60HCW (433Mhz) - can't connect to gw:

    Feather M0 RFM69HCW

    I think you only need:
    #define MY_RFM69_IRQ_PIN 3
    #define MY_RFM69_CS_PIN 8
    for M0 this is not required
    #define MY_RFM69_IRQ_NUM 3



  • @electrik Yepp, using the new driver on the feather and GW
    @alexelite yeah I just tried it to see if it made any difference, and it didn't 😉





  • You can try with #define MY_DEBUG_VERBOSE_RFM69_REGISTERS to se if radio communication is ok and mysensors library is able to communicate with the radio. You should see registers dump at startup.

    If that is ok, on the gateway you should see a "find parent request" from this node.
    This should narrow the problem to "are you transmitting and not receiving", or "you are not transmitting".

    Seems the GW receives something, here's the logs:

    NB: the GW and the feather are 20-30 cm apart so there shouldn't be any signal problem



  • I think I've narrowed it down to encryption, disabling it on the GW and the feather seems to make everything work ok. I've double checked that the key is identical but still won't work.
    Encryption works when I use the ESP32 as "client" instead of the Feather M0. I thought the AES encryption was done in the radio (rfm69) and not the microcontroller (ie. ESP32/Arduino etc.).

    Also, there's really no log message that indicates wrong encryption key or anything related to an encryption problem in the communication? 😐
