Here is my current setup:
1 Xbee Series 1 connect via USB to my computer with an Xbee Explorer.
Another Xbee connected to an Arduino Fio, battery powered.
For now, I am trying to upload a Sketch wirelessly from Arduino’s IDE to the Fio. My port is set at COM3 and my selected board is Arduino Fio.
I used Arduino’s Xbee configuration tool as explained here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardFioProgramming . It indicates that the programming was successful.
I modified the Baud rate for my COM3 Port in Device Manager to 57600 bps and configured the Xbees accordingly. I also checked the Set RTS on Close in the advanced settings.
I also updated the firmware on the Xbees (802.15.4) to 10EC, which I believe is the most recent one. I am not 100% sure this worked though. I used the X-CTU software to accomplish this task, and when I read the device, It says I am running 10EC, but anyways I believe this is fine.
Now, I am trying to send a simple sketch to my Arduino (for testing purposes, I’m trying to send the “Blink” sketch found in the examples) and I am stuck with this error:
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
The RSSI light on the Arduino Fio lights up and the TX light on the Xbee Explorer flash for a short while, then the error message appears.
I try reconfigurating the Xbees with X-CTU this time, but it says the baud rates are not the same, but I checked and the Xbee and the computers COM port are set to 57600, so I can’t see the problem here…
Can someone please shed some light on this problem? Hopefully my components are ok and it’s just a little tweak I may have forgotten…
