We are preparing a plan to reorganize the server infrastructure for Light gateways. We will let you know when we make progress with this and the rest of the upcoming new features and improvements that were announced on May 3rd.

Please contact us if your Light gateway is still inactive and provide us with your gateway ID and frequency region (EU, US or AU).

Please keep reporting any other issues you encounter. Thank you for your continued support. Your Crankk Team
