#21

@Gudmundur I have found the issue and created a PR for a fix to be coming in 1.2.1 default and also 1.3.0-rc.2. I also added an on-device test to ensure this does not regress in the future! https://github.com/particle-iot/device-os/pull/1841

:arrow_right: Here are some compiled binaries of that PR for Electron as a patched 1.3.0-rc.1 build that you may test. Happy to hear your results if you have time to test. Thanks!

I can confirm that the problem is fixed in the (PR1841) patched 1.3.0-rc.1 build running on Electron 2G. getAccessTechnology() returns 2 and rssi returns meaningful numbers

Thank you @BDub for the fix and for providing binaries.

1.2.1 is working perfectly for me.
However as soon as I upgrade to either 1.3.1 or 1.4.0 getAccessTechnology() returns 0 intermittently which causes the RSSI and signal quality to return -1.


#24

This issue should be fixed in fw 1.4.1rc1
Or you can disable the power saving mode.
