I’d love to hear from someone, anyone, that has been successful in using the NovaM with the SARA-R410M-02b chipset. I am able to “hologram send” and subsequently receive at the Hologram Dashboard. Unfortunately, traffic does not arrive at the device…
root@raspberrypi:/home/pi# hologram receive -v
INFO: Detected modem NovaM
INFO: found working port at ttyUSB1
INFO: chatscript file: /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/Hologram/Network/Modem/chatscripts/default-script
INFO: Instantiated a NovaM interface with device name of /dev/ttyUSB1
Ready to receive data on port 4010
I then attempt to send from the Dashboard with no luck. The “Logs” section shows “Socket error: timed out”. I have repeated this ad nauseum, all with the same socket timeout.
I have tried to use the Nova on an RPi0w with a 3.0A power supply; the same RPi0w with the modem connected to an external usb hub; a RPi 2B+; and a Lenovo ThinkPad. All machines experience the same results (lack of success).
My signal appears reasonable, with varying strengths between 13,99 and 29,99.
In the thought that maybe my modem was flawed, I purchased a second one and installed it on a completely separate RPi lest there be some problem (contagion) with my other three machines. I continue to experience the same results.
