NanodeRF ships with Uno or Duemilanove?


I purchased a NanodeRF from the OEM store a couple weeks ago.  It seems to not have the Uno bootloader.  I can only upload from the Arduino IDE by specifying Duemilanove, and then it uploads fine via FTDI adaptor at 56700 baud. I checked the AtMega328 fuse settings, and they match the expected Duemilanove fuse settings rather than the Uno.

So unless I am interpreting this wrong, I think I don't have an Uno.  Just a heads-up to others who may be experiencing upload issues.

This doesn't matter much to me, but I am trying to debug DHCP issues (I have it working only with static ip right now), and my NanodeRF sometimes hangs, and I would like watchdog timer capability, which I guess Uno has.

But I am collecting data and logging it to EmonCMS, so things look promising.

Ah, the NanodeRF should be shipped with Uno. We have recently optained a batch of Nanodes from, these might have been loaded with Duemilanove.  

The Duemilanove, bootloader will cause issues since the reset watchdog won't work. You can try commenting out #define uno to disable the reset watchdog. You can put the uno bootloader on yourself using another arduino: If you're not happy or able to do this please get in touch via the shop and we'll send you an an Atmega with the Uno bootloader. 

Sorry again, all the best,

Thanks for the reply and offer, Glyn.

However, I loaded Uno-Optiboot and the NanodeRF has been up and logging EmonTx data to EmonCMS for 24 hours straight now, so the watchdog bit probably solved some problems.  Thus I won't need a replacement AtMega from you.

The DHCP problems remain, but it seems that is presently being studied, so I will be hoping for fixes there.
