Ethernet Gateway Using PCBWAY board Fifisoft57

  • Hi Everyone,

    I am trying to add a gateway to anther project and this time I am using the W5100 mini and the PCBWAY board designed by FIFIsoft57 (hopefully you see this). The code for the gateway I beleive had to be changed. PLease see my modes below any guidance would be greatly appreciated. This is the PCB MySensors Gateway Ethernet 3.0.

     * The MySensors Arduino library handles the wireless radio link and protocol
     * between your home built sensors/actuators and HA controller of choice.
     * The sensors forms a self healing radio network with optional repeaters. Each
     * repeater and gateway builds a routing tables in EEPROM which keeps track of the
     * network topology allowing messages to be routed to nodes.

     * The EthernetGateway sends data received from sensors to the ethernet link.
     * The gateway also accepts input on ethernet interface, which is then sent out to the radio network.
     * The GW code is designed for Arduino 328p / 16MHz.  ATmega168 does not have enough memory to run this program.
     * LED purposes:
     * - To use the feature, uncomment MY_DEFAULT_xxx_LED_PIN in the sketch below
     * - RX (green) - blink fast on radio message received. In inclusion mode will blink fast only on presentation received
     * - TX (yellow) - blink fast on radio message transmitted. In inclusion mode will blink slowly
     * - ERR (red) - fast blink on error during transmission error or receive crc error
     * See for wiring instructions.

    This indicates there's a communication issue with the radio module. Start your debugging there.

  • @Yveaux thanks

  • HI All.

    Still having problems and this is my first purchase from PCBway not sure if the code need to be changed for this board but I am using PCB MySensors Gateway Ethernet 3.0 developed by fifisoft57. The radios work on other projects and it is almost like the pins are not correct I traced them and they appear right but......... Has anyone used this board if so did you have any issues? I would say it is my solder job but I did 3 boards one should work.

    ANy help would be great.

  • @Yveaux

    Should have dove deeper when you fist said radio, looks like everything was taken care off except the radio power. Jumped a wire over there and bang worked.

    Thanks again for the help.
