Q1: When we test the communication between the gateway and TTN in our office, all works fine. When we move the gateway to other location in my city, at first it appears like "connected" and a couple of hours later it ends up with like "not connected" and remains in that condition. Do you have idea if we need to make some additional configuration in the UG67 or if the TTN (free version) is blocking our gateway?
- Since you moved the gateway to other place, you can double check if gateway still has Internet access by using the ping tool in Maintenance->Ping of web GUI.
- If network status is good, you can connect gateway to TTN through TTN package forwarder. Please refer to this guide How to Connect Milesight Gateway to TTN. Sometimes Semtech UDP package forwarder is unstable.
Q2: I can't connect UG65 gateway to Milesight IoT Cloud. What's wrong?

Q7: We would like to "hard-code" the Broker Address of the MQTT Server in your LoRaWAN® Gateway. The editing should be allowed only for any Authorized Personnel using a secure "password".

Q8: We have the gateway on our roof and problems with the signal in our rooms. Do you have suggestion?
Answer: If you want to manage the sensors in the buildings instead of sensors in remote locations, it's recommended to install the gateway in the middle or nearby building instead of on the roof. You can also increase the gain of the antenna to cover better in nearby area. Here is article How to Improve LoRa Signal for your reference.
Q9: I configure Ethernet port and cellular failover in the gateway. If we move the gateway to another building in our company, should the Gateway be reconfigured to the Internet network of that building?
Answer: It depends on the network structure of your company. After moving to another building, you can check if Ethernet WAN is working fine by ping tool. If yes, then no need to change anything else in the gateway.
