Errors in wireless upload using XBees

Hi,

I'm trying to upload a sketch to an Arduino Fio under the Arduino IDE 1.6.5 using a pair of series 1 XBees, but it won't get through with an error saying

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding….


What I did follows: - updated XBee firmware to 10ef - set DH and DL value - set XBees as coordinator and end device - shorted DIO3 and RTS - Arduino Fio is connected to USB power

I'm using: Mac OS X 10.8.5 Arduino IDE 1.6.5 XCTU 6.0.0 SparkFun XBee Explorer dongle 2x series 1 wire antenna XBees w/ firmware 10ef Arduino Fio (ATMega328P 8MHz)


Does anybody know the cause?

Thanks.

  • set XBees as coordinator and end device

This does not make sense for point to point modules.

For each XBee, list the PAN ID, MY, DH, and DL values.

Here are the values.

[XBee Mac side] PAN ID: 1234 MY: 0 DH: 40D5B60F DL: 40E8D081

[XBee Fio side] PAN ID: 1234 MY: 1 DH: 40E8D081 DL: 40D5B60F
