chat between xbees
Shouldn't it be possible to perform a simple minded chat between a pair of Xbee pros2b s (XBP24BZ7) using adafruit adapters and FTDI cables? No joy here.
I am following the tutorial in the Faludi book. All of the configuration goes fine using either AT commands or X-CTU. I promise that the parameters have been reset to factory default and only the three parameters as on pp 51-53 have been changed.
Zigbee router AT 22A7 firmware is in one device and Zigbee Coordinator firmware 20A7 is in the other.
I have used all four combinations of hyperterminal and X-CTU terminals. There is no difficulty communicating with either radio in any terminal program.
Not a bleep between them.
The green LED lamp blinks full time on each. Nothing ever from the red lamp. The radios are about 8 feet apart.
The adapters and cables have been used before and communication with the modem from the terminal package is no problem.
