I made the RFM96 LoRa Radio Module by adafruit communicate to each other. The next step I want to do is connect to it to a gateway, which is either the RAK7371 Developer Base or RAK2287 Concentrator Module. After connecting these gateways to The Things Network (TTN), I noticed that it doesn't get or reflect the data from the RFM96 module in the gateway. I didn't see the data I sent using the module.

After doing researches, I may have found out what might be the reason -- RFM96 LoRa Radio Module is not considered as LoRaWAN end-node as needed by the gateways.

I would like to confirm to you and hoping that someone can shed light on this matter.

Thank you!

LoRa and LoRaWAN are not the same.

What are LoRa and LoRaWAN? tells you the details: -

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank you for the clarification! Actually I already registered my RFM96 radio module to the TTN. However, I didn't see the data it sends. This what I got every time I open the serial monitor of my Arduino IDE. Starting Packet queued 1843: EV_JOINING 2122: EV_TXSTART FAILURE May I humbly ask for any insights I could take to address this? Thank you so much. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jun 8, 2022 at 2:06
