First question you need to answer is why you bought mesh-network radios for point-to-point use, instead of point-to-point radios for point-to-point use.

thanx PaulS  :) ,

errr.. i just put wrong device ...
XBee 1mW Wire Antenna - Series 1 not series 2.. sorry for mistake...

so..in your opinion, can i use the tutorial i mention before ?? or do u have any suggestion  :~  please help..  =( thank you..

PaulS

No, you can't use that tutorial. That is for series 2.5 devices. Using X-CTU, read the modem configuration. Then change PAN ID, MY and DL. Set PAN ID to the same value on both XBees. Set MY on one to some value other than 0. Set DL to a different value, other than 0. On the other XBee, use the same values, but in opposite fields. MY on one should be DL on the other.

That is all that you need to set.

Which XBee shields did you get?

husnaidris

ooo..thanx for helping...

i'm using Arduino-XBee Shield (without module)

That will probably work better WITH a module attached. There are jumpers on that shield that can be moved to allow the programming of the Arduino will the shield still attached, and then moved to connect the XBee to the serial port pins.

did u mean like this module ?? i do have XBee 1mW Wire Antenna - Series 1 attach to the Arduino-XBee Shield .. is it ok ?? i think i do have that jumper on the xbee shield also... :D
