It indeed seems to be related to the DNS server not being set correctly by the Vodafone service. You can manually set the DNS server by using:
socket.dnsserver() #this should return empty
My colleague @Xykon can tell you more about the DNS server IP address. It has to be specific to the pycom servers (so setting 18.104.22.168 as the dns server should not work)
@Alois 125 kHz tags are quite common, but I’m not sure if it’s really standard, you may need different readers depending on the exact type of tag. You should find some types of readers on SparkFun for instance.
I didn’t know about the 134.2 kHz tags, but they’re animal identification tags, right? Found some reader modules on eBay, Amazon... they seem to have pretty low-level interfaces, though.
@troy-salt it should definitely be something you can control, though, so you can decide to which version you want to upgrade, and which devices should be upgraded.
Many past firmware versions have broken quite a few things, so you need to be able to test any new firmware on a limited set of test devices before deploying it widely.
