I am having trouble getting my S1 xbee module to communicate through my xbee shield. I have 2 xbees, an Arduino Uno, an Xbee shield, and an explorer. Both of the xbee modules have updated firmware, blank sketches have been loaded to the Arduino, and they both work when paired with the explorer. My main issue is getting the xbee to connect through the shield and arduino. I have been looking online for various solutions and have seen a few but am not sure which route to take. The first is to wire
3.3V on the arduino to the vcc pin
Rx on the Arduino to Dout
Tx to Din
and GND to GND
With this approach, I am not sure if you still use the shield to do that or to use an adapter. The second approach is to remove the ATMEGA chip. I would want to know this works before doing it, of course. What would be the best way to go about getting the xbee to communicate with xctu through the xbee shield?
Thank you very much
