 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

i buy  5 components last week :


-1 Arduino Uno R3
-Xbees Dual Shield (http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/bees-shield-p-672.html?cPath=132_134)
-2 RF Module Xbee Serie 2
-1 USB Explorer for Xbee (seedstudio).


I install all drivers for all.

I install X-CTU software from digi.com

____________________________________________

When i plug each module on USB explorer and make Test/Query in X-CTU, all works good.
Each Module have same config.

But when i try Test/Query each module from Xbees Dual Shield, nothing works.

I place the Xbee RF Module on Xbee1 slot, switch to Amega, and run a Test/Query.

here is a 2 screenshot of my result :



X-CTU ask me to Reset Xbee Shield for connect but when i press reset on Xbee shield, nothing happen .

After cancel, there is what's appear :



Unable to communicate with modem.

note then my pin is set like this :



i find 12 post about this problem on forum but nothing work for me smiley-sad

Anyone have a clue what is not work here for this example and what i can do?

Thanks to share if you know something

It is so much easier to use the USB explorer to configure the XBees. Then, put them (or it) on the shield on the Arduino.

Did you remove the AtMega328 chip from the Arduino (clone) before trying to configure the XBees on the shield?

Each Module have same config.
This is wrong, then. Each module needs a unique address (that the other one knows about).

That's exactly what i do :

I program each module on USB explorer and all go well and find.

Each module give me a succes communication and feedback like +++ and all on USB explorer.


So after that, i place one of module on the shield...but nothing work on it like on USB explorer.
I'am thinking first i dont need to remove arduino chip ifi just use it normaly (no programing so i keep the chip in place.

So i guest my problem is here :

For now each module be seted like this :
PC Settings

Baud :                          9600
Flow controle :              NONE
Data Bit :                     8
Parity :                        None
Stop Bits :                   1
API :                           Not enable

I never play before on all settings in Modem Config.


i try several time to READ/RESTORE/ and WRITE for restore and install last version on both.

So i'am very curious to know how i can set different adress.

Note then when i get modules first day....all be work on shield but for some reason after an update (same version)  nothing work anymore on the shield.

I'am be little confused to about RX/TX/Digital pin on the shield and amega/usb switch   but all is good
my pin is set like this :

and the switch on the shield is set to : USB.


Any solution?
