Wireless transciever with external antenne does not work.
Can someone help me with the following.
I have succesfully made a serial gateway and a servo actuator. I want to use the tranciever with external antenne. When I use the one without the external antenna:
Everything is working fine.
When I hook up the shield with external antenne , it doesn't work.
I tried to power the shield with an external powersupply and a stepdown thingy to get 3.3 v
Also the Decoupling-Capacitor is installed , but as soon as I switch the tranciever shield , from the build in antenna to external antenna , no joy.
I have tried several Arduino nano's
But all the same.
When I use my Arduino uno, it works , when I connect the external antenna shield directly on 3.3v or with stepdown on 5v or on external powersource with the stepdown regulator.
Anyone has an idea why I can not get it to work on the nano's?
Try with some different sizes/variant for the decoupling capacitor.
Try some other regulator/powersource.
okidoki, will do ,
