Topic: RN-XV setup with arduino uno shield (Read 3205 times) previous topic - next topic

hey
I own an arduino uno, and for my new project I need it to be wireless, so i've decided to use the RN-XV with SMA connector (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/11047) with the xbee shield (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9976).

Now I'm wondering, do I need an XBEE explorer USB (http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8687) in order to first-configure-it? Or it is possible that all configurations will be done through the arduino uno? and if so- how? is there a special arduino code for this mode? which pins to connect?

you can use the arduino to communicate with it.
set the switch on your shield, so the usb port on arduino talks directly with the rn-xv...
then go into the serial monitor and communicate directly with it...

$$$   

then you can configure directly :)   

check out my threads on the subject :) along with some code for turning led's on and off :)

Hi,

You can use the Arduino to configure the WiFly. I tried configuring it via wifi, using the Arduino only as a power source, and it worked well.

I wrote a short guide here:

Let me know how you get on.

Hey fellas
it took me a while, but now I'm back on the project  :*
anyway I'm trying to use u'r advices, but having some difficulties to get to the rn-xv configuration.

I'm trying to configure the rn-xv via the arduino, using the xbee shield. I used your code trying to configure the wifly pins 2,3 or 11,12, but no response at all from the device.

I also tried setting the UART/D-LINE switch both ways but no response.

can u please help?
TX!
