greetings, from the research i have done over the last few days (noob),it seems that the arduino fio/xbee doesnt like to do the point-to-multipoint networking the xbee alone is capable of, which was my primary reason for buying them (PLEASE let me know if i am wrong about this!). so i decided to just use the Xbees alone, but that would mean a drastic reduction in the number of digital io, and the inbuilt power/battery charging capabilities, so i wanted to know if there is a way to "turn off" the arduino fio and just use its battery charger and io to feed the xbee? that way i can still use the Fio's to hold the xbees and power them but also bypass the arduino capablilities which should allow me to program their mesh networking properties and at the much higher data rate the radios are capable of. unless someone knows how to do point-to-multipoint networking "with" the fio.
any ideas? thanks!
