RF12Demo not sending all packets

Added by Rbruins almost 6 years ago

I’ve recently gotten 2 Jeenodes(v6) and a RF12M board (connected an UNO).

So basicly I’ve got 3 of them.

The problem is the following one of jeenode isn’t sending/receiving all packets
I did some debugging using the RF12Demo and found the following

Thru elimination I’ve found the following:
(UNO = COM3, JN = COM4) see screenshot
One of the JN doesn’t always send all packet using the t-command and it doesn’t seem to receive any data.
Anyone have an idea?

To show that the other one works, I’ve put in another screenshot with everything all fine.

It looks like COM4 on the JN_problems.jpg is using the 868MHz radio setting while all the the other pictures show using 433MHz. You need to be sure what type of RFM12B radio modules you are using and then set RF12Demo to use that band using the “b” command - “8b” to set 868Mhz and “4b” to set 433MHz.

Thank you,

That was just plain stupid on my part. And shows why screenshots are the way to go.

No problem, I know from personal experience that a things gets missed in all the excitement of it coming together.
