Sounds like the hardware setup is all wrong. OP hasn't described how "anything" is hooked up,
but the first guess is he has the RN-XV going to the same pins as the USB port on the Arduino,
so that will never ever work. Too much guessing. I hooked up my RN-XV this morning and
typed "$$$", and got back "OK" right off. Then, I typed "get e", and it displayed the complete
Sorry, you're right, I should have added more info. I am sure it is a stupid mistake.
The module I am using is Wifly RN-XV. I have it attached to my Arduino Uno R3 on pins 8 and 9 and I am using software serial in the code. I maybe going about this all wrong. But, I am using a delay and then serial.print to send "$$$" I then am using serial.read. Is this completely wrong?
I know I am a noob. My areas of expertise lay elsewhere, but I am more than capable of learning.
