I just built the neat Xbee Adapter kit v1.1 and tested out connectivity using the free Realterm program on Win7.
Next installed X-CTU and allowed it to through the firewall. It was able to obtain XBee version info fine:
- Code: Select all
Modem type = XB-24B
Modem Firmware version = 22A0
Using Modem Configuration when Read is selected the following occurs:
The modem configuration file was not found. Would you like to check the web site for updates? (Recommended)
When answering yes, a dialog says "checking for updates..." followed by "Modem configuration file not found after update"
At the bottom of the window this text is displayed:
Unable to find configuration file for modem (firmware version 22A0). Use 'Download new versions' button to check the web for newer versions. Read parameters..OK
When selecting the Modem manually from the list we find XB24-B. The function sets and corresponding version numbers are lower than the firmware version.
I have tried uninstall/reinstall and also tied installing to a 2nd Win7 machine all with the same result. I also tried swapping radios.
This is my first time working with XBee. Am I missing some basic steps someplace? DIGI's KB did not seem to have anything on this.
