Arduino Nano, W5100 Ethernet, NRF24L01+, wont get or use an ip (dhcp or static)



  • Hi folks,

    after a long time of googling around I would like to ask you for your help.

    I'm using an arduino nano, a w5100 Ethernet shield and a nrf24l01+.

    The problem is that it doesnt get an ip adress via dhcp or if I configure the ip static it won't also work.

    If I upload a webserver example it is working. So the w5100 ethernet shield is working.

    Here is my sketch: (used the one from this website).

    serial Monitor output:
    0;255;3;0;9;Starting gateway (RNNGA-, 2.0.0)
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:INIT
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:RADIO:OK
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:GW MODE
    0;255;3;0;9;TSM:READY
    IP: 0.0.0.0
    0;255;3;0;9;No registration required
    0;255;3;0;9;Init complete, id=0, parent=0, distance=0, registration=1

    • DESCRIPTION
    • 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 WITH_LEDS_BLINKING in MyConfig.h
      • RX (green) - blink fast on radio message recieved. In inclusion mode will blink fast only on presentation recieved
      • TX (yellow) - blink fast on radio message transmitted. In inclusion mode will blink slowly
      • ERR (red) - fast blink on error during transmission error or recieve crc error
    • See http://www.mysensors.org/build/ethernet_gateway for wiring instructions.

    @webstor could you describe what you mean by "won't work"? Have you tried to ping it?



  • No IP via dhcp.
    If I change it to static, it isn't pingable. There isn't not even a dhcp discover / offer and so on. Tested it with wireshark.



  • To get to the point.
    The ethernetmodule isnt working with the code from mysensors and I don't know why.
    If I upload a webserver code for testing dhcp or static is working.

    And ping wont make sense if the interface isnt working at all. 😉

    Are you sure you don't take out too much juice from the Arduino? With both radio and ethernet module attached... Could you try powering the eth-module separately?



  • @hek said:

    Hi.

    I also tried use an external power supply which.
    Same result.
    The led's of the lan-port are flashing like from every other device.


  • Admin

    And you are't re-using the mac address on some other device?



  • @hek said:

    some

    nope.
    I also changed the default mac adress to another one just to make sure.

    Same.


  • Admin

    Very strange.. did you try disabling the radio just for test (MY_RADIO_NRF24) and unplugging it?



  • HI,

    I think two of my lan-shields are broken. The problem is that they aren't total broken.
    I mean, they are working sometimes, and then they dont.

    Sorry. for stealing your time.



  • The baddest part is, I have to reorder these lan shields and wait till the show up.


  • Admin

    Why did they die?
