can I use this?
how do i connect these shield properly?
should the baudrate be 9600 or 57600 ?
Okay no worries.Don't connect the XBee while the arduino is powered up - you might fry it.I couldn't find any mention of the shield you are using in your posts, but from the pictures you posted I assume its this one: http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9976. You can switch the serial interface of the XBee to either the hardware serial interface on the Arduino, or to digital pins 2 and 3. When it connected to the hardware serial interface you will not be able to load a sketch. You can change the switch position so you can load a sketch, but make sure the Arduino is powered down when you do this.With the switch set for pins 2 and 3, you can use Software Serial to communicate with the XBee.I think you should take a look at some of the numerous tutorials that are available for getting your XBee going.http://www.cooking-hacks.com/index.php/documentation/tutorials/arduino-xbee-shieldhttp://www.electrojoystick.com/tutorial/?page_id=25http://xbeewireless.tumblr.com/
