I set the fuses but I'm not 100% sure I set them as you say. Do you think that having the fuses different may cause the error? I will take a look, I hope this is the error :)

I checked the fuses and I was setting them right. I didn't attached any antenna, should it be a problem? I think I'm going to give up for a while and test other parts...

Thanks

You didn't solder the antenna?  :o
Well ... don't expect any performance without the antenna

Some of them had and dome of them hadn't. But all the comparisons are in the same conditions ;)

But you're still comparing apples and oranges. RFM69HW uses a different amplifier path for the antenna than RFM69W. So RFM69HW could act completely differently without the antenna when the amplifier is not turned on.
So you should solder the antenna in any case.

Yes, I have soldered the antenna on some of them, but no luck. I will buy 2 moteinos with the module from your store and try to test my modules.

Is moteino in stock? It seems so but in the store there is a message with claims the opposite.

Thanks and best regards.

No, R3 is out of stock right now. Waiting on a overly delayed PCB order... maybe sometime next week.
