Which SF and TX power should ı use?

Hello guys, ı am trying to use P2P mode and increase the range by that. My case is ; we have end nodes made with rak3172 and they are inside the metal boxes. When ı use LoRaWAN Mode in default, devices can send data to Gateway, but with P2P mode, they can’t. I don’t know how to fix this but that is the AT command that i use “AT+P2P=868000000:12:125:0:8:22”. With 12 Spreading factor and 22 dBm. I live in turkey.

Did ı do something wrong?

Hi @tortudereli

Not sure, but I think you are mixing up things here.

LoRa P2P is to communicate between two or multiple nodes, there is no protocol involved unless you implement one and the data is send unencrypted, unless you add encryption. In addition there is no node addressing, unless you implement it.

LoRaWAN is a communication protocol that covers data encryption, node addressing and many other things.

A LoRaWAN gateway might receive LoRa P2P packets, but it will disregard it because the packets are not in the correct format.
