Question: Do you know if the S1s work out-of-the-box or if they require configuration as well?
Hey, I have the same modules (xbee pro s2) and I am having problems connecting through my shield using x-ctu. I can connect to either board when using the explorer board but when I put it on the shield on the arduino, nothing. the "assoc" led is flashing steadily. I checked ground, power, DIN, DOUT. DIN = pin 0, DOUT = pin 1. is there setup on the arduino that i am missing? I havent done anything yet to tell the arduino to tx and rx from pins 0 and 1.
The XBee is plugged into a shield, which is plugged into an Arduino, and you're trying to use X-CTU? Not sure that makes sense.
To set this up with S2 modules, one needs the AT Coordinator firmware loaded, and the other needs AT Router firmware.
Then three AT commands need to be sent to each module to set its destination address to be the other module (ATDH, ATDL, ATWR). The address is a 64-bit number (16 hex digits) that is on the bottom of the module, and will start with 0013A200.
Actually, you can program an XBee this way, if you have first removed the ATMega chip from the Arduino. Since you have an explorer board, it is so much simpler to program the XBees using that.
when i select coordinator or router it actually says "coordinator API" and "Router API", is that ok? I am assuming it is since there is nothing else similar. It's confusing because I thought i was specifically setting it up for AT.
Also, im not sure how exactly to do this:QuoteThen three AT commands need to be sent to each module to set its destination address to be the other module (ATDH, ATDL, ATWR). The address is a 64-bit number (16 hex digits) that is on the bottom of the module, and will start with 0013A200.
