Ethernet Gateway not working with Vera..



  • HI,

    This is my first time here, so bare with me if this has been discussed previously or if the question isnt that smart.

    I had working with my Vera a Serial gateway, but based on the issues I saw mentioned about its reliability, decided to build an ETHERNET GATEWAY. Using arduino UNO, W5100 Shield, and tried several radios, lately using the antena one for NRF24. The setup follows the latest news on the website, including the different pinout in the radio.

    Here is the issue: "MySensors plugin : Cannot send command - communications error" shows on my Vera. And when i hook up serial monitor to this on the computer, I keep getting the messages below over and over (seems werid), and it doesnt seem the sketch ever reaches the main loop..

    What can this be? The sketch is below

    • 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.

    • REVISION HISTORY
    • Version 1.0 - Henrik EKblad
    • Contribution by a-lurker and Anticimex,
    • Contribution by Norbert Truchsess norbert.truchsess@t-online.de
    • Contribution by Tomas Hozza thozza@gmail.com
    • 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.
