Transmit problem



  • Today I try to test a node and sometimes I have a lot of packet wich not reach the gateway. I didn't move gateway and node. Both 1.5 (perhaps old version for gateway) master branch for node (sensebender). Sensebender sketch with FORCE_TRANSMIT_INTERVAL set to 0.
    Doesn't know wath is the problem. During the last night only 1 lost packet. Is it wifi related ?
    Currently I use default channel (76).
    And last question for the gateway, power is set to LOW by default. Why ?

    As a safety measure, because historically many people hooked up an amplified NRF-module without giving it enough juice. On a regular module the power setting doesn't matter.



  • Ok thank you. I try with another sensebender and radio from Itead. Will see in 24 hours if it's better. I change network to channel 120 too. Seems to work, but for how many time ...



  • Works fine with channel 120. No more lost packets.
