Does anyone know if the nRF24L01 transceiver will work with the minimum breadboard configuration for the Mega328? I'm running two breadboarded Mega328's with internal 8Mhz clocks but I noticed the nRF24L01's are running 16Mhz clocks... having a heck of a time getting Maniabug's led_remote tutorial to run, so I'm wondering if it's the clock frequencies. Do I need to use external 16Mhz crystals on the Mega's?
Can't answer that really - but since the NRF24L01 has its own timing so it should not matter what the ATMega328 is running at.
I put mine on a simple board with ATMega328 and it was runnning a 16Mhz Crystal and it worked with the board.
I did notice that the aerial's had to face each other. If they faced Up then they did not really communicate very well at all.
So if you haven't try that - ie line of sight!
