I tried to install routers near the coordinator as much as I could,, but not all of them are at this situation. I have some routers connect between themselves, but not with coordinator directly.
As all my routers devices work with liPo or li-Ion batteries, when any of the router, without line-of-sight, exhausts the battery, the network breaks down.
I said that because routers have to detect coordinator in the first time it begin to work, so if battery goes down, when I change it, I have to move my device all along the network and come back.
Is there any option for maintaining the network parameters even if the coordinator isn't near enough??Could it be as simply as modify 'NW', 'JV', 'NT' or 'NO' parameters??
when I switch off the router for a long time (simulating battery breaks down), it needs some time to add again to the network.
Now, I'm going to try a nonsense. I change the 'sleep mode' to 'pin hibernate' in one router (I know it must be always awake), and let it falls asleep for an hour, then I wake it up, and try again the communication.
A router has the following characteristics: it•Must join a ZigBee PAN before it can transmit, receive, or route data•After joining, can allow routers and end devices to join the network•After joining, can assist in routing data•Cannot sleep--should be mains powered.•Can buffer RF data packets for sleeping end device children.
Hello Jack,I really need your help. I have about 9 arduino uno board, 9 xbee pro and xbee shield, i also have a USB doggle. I am trying to design a mesh network. How do i connect them to make them communicate? i got some codes. if you will like me send you the code email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks
Thank you very much. so do you have any code i can load on the arduinos board to text the communication? secondly, i think i just needed to set them on the same PAN ID? is there any other parameter i need to change? lastly, i mine suppose to use AT mode or API mode to be able to work on mesh network? Thank you very much....really appreciateI have been struggly with this for the past two months.
Hello Jack,Do you live in MI? if you do kindly send me your number email@example.com. I need to discuss with you. I live in Windsor, ON. just close to Detroit. Thanks
