I recently bought the sparkfun XBee Starter Kit and everything was going fine until I was unable to connect the xbee with the shield attached. No matter what I did, it kept telling me that no devices were found. I was able to successfully connect one xbee using the explorer module but when I use the XBee shield it gives me an error.
I was able to determine that the problem was the shield being connected during uploading. I did this by trying to upload a code using the Arduino software. I was able to upload a code without the shield but with the shield I got an error. I tried doing this for both an Uno and a Mega. I also tried another computer and got the same results.
What do I need to do to fix this? I can't just take off the shield for uploading because I need to connect the shield for the XBee software.
