Thanks, but I still have a couple left in my parts bin

RE: have not mysensors team any plans for add esp8266 ?
What you are asking for, is already working with mysensors! A gateway can have local sensors / actuators, and it doesn't need to have an NRF/RFM radio attached for working.
- Create a ESP8266 gateway without defining a radio (nrf / rfm)
- Add sensor / actuator of some kind, to the sketch, and voila..
RE: Pls help debug this...
An online logparser exists on mysensors.org, under build. It can help transform the logs to a more human readable version..
I have copied your logs from above to this logparser, where you can see that it returns NACK for the packages.. Check powersupply for the radio (both ends) capacitors etc.
Refer to the troubleshooting guide as well
RE: MySensors SenseBender GW + W5100
That setting is turning the gateway into a "client" which needs to connect to a server (which is your controller). Without this set it is running as a "server" which accepts incoming connections from other devices on the network (like your controller)
Finally some light in "my" sensors installation :)
Even though I have been around Mysensors for quite some time now, I have mainly used it as a means of collecting environmental data from the house / outside.
But finally I have come to the point that I am beginning to get a bit of LED lights implemented as well, with control from domoticz. First one was behind my TV, been running for awhile now, turning on a backlight after sunset. It even dims up/down upon activity from our chromecast
The latest addition is a shelf behind the couch, with built in LED lights, with touch based interaction. Made up of an mpr121 breakout board, an arduino with nrf24 radio, and a couple of FETs.
a video of the thing in operation is on youtube (And yes, it's recorded today, the kids are having fun with some youtube music channels on the tv with Christmas songs..)
It's all tied in to domoticz, so I can make the same light settings behind the couch, as behind the TV.

RE: Minimalist SAMD21 TQFP32 Pro Mini
You will always have the issue of USB connection, when using a native USB device, because it will re-enumerate on the USB bus whenever you reset the device.
That's also why you have to put the following code
In the setup routine of sketches with native usb devices, if you expect to catch all debug messages from the start. This behavior does not change if you have both native and a programming port.
