I have two arduino boards (one arduino Uno and another one is a 100% compatible clone which has some switch and light peripherals.) And recently, I bought two Xbee series two radios (digi branded). Now, I dont have any xbee explorer or xbee breakout boards, I am just connecting relimate connectors to take the four pins from the xbees.
This is my setup:
One xbee connected to arduino Uno (2nd pin for tx and 4th pin for rx using the SoftwareSerial library) - the four pins of xbee are connected as power to 3v3 of arduino, GND to GND of arduino and tx and rx to respective pins (2nd and 4th pin).
Another xbee is connected to the clone (here I used the default tx and rx pins - 0 and 1).
Now, what I need to start a talk between the two boards wirelessly?
I tried many example programs over the Internet. But nothing is of use.
All I want to do is that, When I press a button on the clone, some character must be transmitted and displayed on the serial monitor (The arduino Uno is connected to the computer with the default tx and rx pins (this is the reason i used duplicate tx and rx for the radio on the UNO). I have been trying this for 4 days....
