The gateway or hub is offline. Please check power and network connections (309).

  • Problem
  • Updated 2 months ago
It's now a game of "Will it work or won't it?" when we need to use it. There's no rhyme or reason to when it'll work or not. I can try to open or close the garage and 5 seconds later I'll get no response until the app times out with "The gateway or hub is offline. Please check power and network connections (309)." all while the light is a steady green indicating that it's connected to the mothership. It appears to work as soon as I power-cycle it (even doing that doesn't always work) - Then afterwards all I get is Error 309 - Curious, I have it plugged into Port #4 on my NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 Dual Band Wi-Fi Gigabit Router (R7000) and when I look at connected devices, there doesn't appear to be anything listed on port #4 - does anyone see this listed under their "Attached Devices"?

My garage door opener is Chamberlain PD612EV

Any suggestions?

Mine worked when I left in the morning to close the door; as soon as it closed, it went into this funky state. 
I'm not a nooby when it comes to network issues, so this little device is giving more pita than other serious servers.... the worst is that there is no way to diagnose other than "have you tried to power off and on again ? No, power off and on again ?? " (Thanks "The IT Crowd" )...

Yes, they migrated to AWS and Azure and don't seem to have a frigging clue how to troubleshoot their mess. As anywhere else the "support" is a bunch of clueless, untrained monkeys.

THat's how customer support should work.... hell, no !!!! Goddamn it wasted several hours... next time this happens, I will just sit and weather the storm out without even bothering...
Yeah, I finally remembered that I own a house with a door with keylock and I have a key !!!

Thanks Terry Terry .
Update: 
Lesson learned: when the dinglebop green light is flashing, AND my network is good, then it's a server problem. This fleeb needs to talk to the server and know that the server is there so it will stop blinking the green light.
Next time it happens......... sit tight and wait. Remember to take your house keys !

I'm having the same 309 issue now. Stopped working about 3 days ago.
It has worked great for two and a half years. No problems.
Now, it just gives a 309 from the app.
I have power cycled the unit but no go.
Very frustrating - does it have a logic bomb in it to stop working after a couple years?

I have a similar problem. i get the 309 error message when my router is working fine and I have no issues otherwise. When I reboot the router today, I still have the same issue. This is getting frustrating.

I found my issue - it was an unresponsive DNS server. Fixed the DNS issue, resolved the MyQ.

MyQ hub has been working properly for about 2 years. Now I too am getting the Error 309 message. When I unplug and plug the hub back in, both blue and green lights flash (like 3X) and the green light goes off and the blue light stays on. When I look at the lights on my network switch, the light that the MyQ hub is connected to is lit green, showing that the network is noticing the device, but MyQ apparently isn't recognizing the network. Is there a way to maybe hard reset the MyQ hub? Maybe that might fix it.

Got the Chamberlain LW9000WF installed less than a week ago and it was working fine and now I keep getting this Error 309 as well. Solid green light. Tried removing and re-adding to the app but that was a mistake because now I can't even add it again. This thing is worthless. Anyone found a fix?

Having same trouble. We installed ours a month ago, and we keep getting this same message. "The gateway or hub is offline". It will work for about a week, then we get the message and we have to reset everything. Is there a fix for this???

I'll join the club too. I have two hubs and two garage door openers (separated garages). Had the MyQ installed for a week, and then I got this same error on both doors, at the same time. I unplugged the two hubs, my router and my cable modem. Plugged the modem back in, followed by the router and then the hubs. Works now but who knows for how long? Yesterday when replacing some power receptacles and light switches, I did turn off a few breakers trying to identify which circuits the recepts/switches were on. One or more  of them would have powered the router, the cable modem, and the MyQ hubs so they would have turned off, and then booted back up (probably not in the correct order). Maybe the MyQ hub didn't like losing it's connection for a few minutes, and couldn't reconnect? Has anyone else with this problem turned off their power right before the problems started?

Chamberlain garage door system is lousy and unreliable.  i made a big mistake to buy this. The battery life in the door sensor is horrible.  The system generates a 309 error every few days, and yet my entire home has huge/reliable wifi bandwidth and is configured with Samsung Smart Things, GE wifi lighting,Ring wifi doorbells  that are "ALL" UP, online and performing all of the time.

Like tjkenny, the MyQ I have is unreliable. It works approximately 75% of the time and that 25% of the time it doesn't work is when I need it (like this morning when it began to rain while walking the dog and, because I couldn't open the garage door, had to unlock the front door and the dog shook water all over the front entryway!).

I, too, have a sophisticated network with connected SmartThings, a dozen Philips Hue, Ring doorbells, three computers/iPads/iPhones, and connected audio devices. This garage door opener is the *only* device I cannot trust to work when needed.

So how the hell do I get this device to get (and stay) reliably connected?

I have had similar issues.  In the winter the MyQ is completely unreliable to the point I don't even bother using it.  In the summer, it is completely reliable.  In my case, it seems to be temperature related - cold weather bad, warm weather good.

Wondering if anyone from Chamberlain monitors these boards? My message was left A MONTH AGO and zero response. MyQ still doesn't work, even after a "factory reset" and new setup. Again, I'm a geek and can get just about anything working, but I think either this unit is defective, the entire series is (a new one with HomeKit support is about to debut) or it's a bad design in need of a firmware update.

Did you ever get a fix? I think I am in the exact same boat as you. Many tech gadgets that work fine and this 309 error is the only thing I can’t figure out.

Hello Team,
I have realized that the speed/duplex for chamberlain is 10Mbps half duplex. When I connect my Chamberlain to netgear switch it comes instantaneously but if I connect to another switch then the green light keeps blinking (but the interface information where chambelain is connected shows 10 mbps half duplex) and the gateway does not get an address.
Have anyone of you seen this?

It works for a few days, then it goes offline. You have to reset the gateway over again. Its totally unreliable.

Mine worked perfectly for a little over a year.  Suddenly, last week, it went offline in the afternoon.  (I used it that morning a couple times)  All I could get was a blinking green light.  I reset everything in my network even though all other items in the house were working fine with full Internet access.  Still blinking green.

I performed the hard reset and deleted everything from my account, then tried to add it back.  No luck.  Then I deleted everything again and used a different location name to re-setup everything.  It seemed to work fine again..... for a day.  Now it's offline again.  Everything else in my house still works fine.

Is my hub just broken already?  It looks like buying a replacement hub could cost me 60% of what I paid for the entire door opener kit (which included the opener, 2 remotes, keypad, battery, sensors, hub, power supply, etc.)  

I used to really talk this system up.  Now, I'm not sure what I'm going to do.  I don't want to be buying a new hub every year, just after the warranty runs out.

I have 3 gateways and have found that the ones that are outside the range of my wifi never go off line but the one inside was never reliable perhaps some interference with wifi it seems

Same issue.  Working for 2+ years and now cannot get it to work.  Error 309.  Tried everything.  Seems like a common problem that hasn't been figured out.

I was able to resolve with technical support over the phone. Some extra steps that I took before attempting to reset the gateway again:
1. Before I attempted to reset this last time, I turned off bluetooth and wifi(I turned off wireless router until I successfully reset) for every device that has connected or lists the gateway/hub as a connection point.
2. I followed the reset procedures with the phone support technician.
3. Hub and HomeKit issues resolved!

I hope this helps someone!

Every time I have a power flicker I have to manually go in and reconfigure it. It's not worth the hassle to deal with it. I'm done with liftmaster. Mi e has been offline 171 days and still can't get it to work

I have a similar problem, except I am using one MyQ hub to control two garage door openers.  This has worked fine for about a year.  Now, the app reports that one garage door is offline.   I don't see how this is possible since there is only one MyQ that controls both doors.   One of the doors still works fine through the app, so I know the MyQ is connected.  Testing the sensors on both doors works as expected (hub beeps).

i had the same problem but i have three gateways with two of them aways from my residence which never caused a problem only the one inside my residence did ,,  i have come to the conclusion that my wifii is interferring with the signal , so i have located my one gateway as far away from my router as possible and so far no more problems

Ok, so my previous post was 16 hours ago when I gave up trying to make this thing work, did a factory reset, tried and tried again, finally pulled off the power plug and went on to watch Rick and Morty instead...
Today.... after 16 hours, a good night sleep :-) .... this plumbus was powered off the entire night, I thought, what the heck, another try... plugged the power and it immediately flashed the blue, went off, then the green a few times  and the green flashed differently, ie. like when it is doing some handshake, the way it should be. Then the green light went solid green. I said, hey, it seems to be working. And it is.

The device had disappeared from my account, possibly because I factory-hard-reset it; so I went through the pairing process, hit the "Learn" button on the opener and voila, it came back to life.

How to hard reset: there is a small hole on the side where you:
- insert a paper clip and feel/hear a click.
- Hold it there, pull the power plug, wait 5-10 secs;
- release the paper click;
- wait 16 hours (this worked for me hahah) but seriously, 30 seconds should be enough;
- insert the paper clip on the reset button and press it;
- plug power on;
- hold for 20 seconds, release;
- the device is factory reset (this will require pairing again).

Ok, could be that the 16 hours was the time to really clear up everything inside the dinglebop or, most likely, what I feel, is that Liftmaster server went out again and they fixed it without telling anyone... sigh...

Anyway, I'm back in business.... with the learned lesson:
when the dinglebop green light is flashing, AND I know that my network is good, then it's a server problem.
This fleeb needs to talk to the server and know that the server is there so it will stop blinking the green light.
Next time it happens......... sit tight and wait. Remember to take your house keys !
