Topic: Problem communicating via serial with Wifly module (Read 390 times) previous topic - next topic

After loading a sketch to my Wifly RN-XV module and opening up the serial monitor I am getting nonsense like this   " $þ?þ?÷þ #[þ¹ÿ "   in the serial monitor. What do you think the issue is? Thanks.

Just a guess, but maybe you are on the wrong baudrate? I've seen that mentioned in the forums before, I think. The default for the WiFly is 9600.

What shield are you using with your module? Just curious since I am having trouble with mine.

You were right! It was the baudrate. I changed it from 9600 to 115200. I am using this: http://www.karlssonrobotics.com/shop/rn-xv-wifly-module-wire-antenna/?gclid=CK_C2PeLwbUCFW3ZQgodHBUAtg You have to solder it to this http://www.ebay.com/itm/XBee-breakout-board-adapter-0-1-DIP-breadboard-/230860861800 because it is the xbee footprint and won't fit standard breadboards. I am also using this library for it: http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,99362.0.html

Cool. Glad it worked for you.

That XBee breakout board you linked looks like a good option. I have bad luck with soldering, but for the price I can afford to screw up a few times.

You should see my soldering. It's terrible. Probably should be illegal.
