I have been playing around with the AT firmware mode and it works great.
However i decided to try out the API mode.
I am using XCTU and a wireless SD shield. After upgrading firmware to API mode i am unable to connect using XCTU.
One thing that i did notice was that the firmware put me into a cyclic sleep mode. I had only done the API mode to the end device and now i am unable to make any changes to the xbee module. I have been searching everywhere and it seems that everywhere tells me to get either an xbee xplorer from sparkfun (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8687) or an XBIB (http://www.digikey.ca/product-search/en/rf-if-and-rfid/rf-accessories/3539661?k=XBIB) in order to properly communicate with the module again.
Am i doing something wrong?
Baud rate 9600, everything is exactly the same except the new firmware API i put in there.
I did find this information - http://www.digi.com/support/kbase/kbaseresultdetl?id=3402#ZigBee
in order to reset to AT mode i have to either get the Xbee explorer or the XBIB. Does anyone know how i can properly use xctu with the Wireless SD shield from arduino?
I appreciate any feedback!! Please let me know!
