I’m developing a wireless sensing application for the Gadgeteer but I’m having trouble in making it wireless. I am using an FEZ Spider Mainboard, an XBee Adapter and XBees 802.15.4 radios. (I’m trying to make it work with an XBee S1 module and a 900MHz module, both 802.15.4).
My mission is to simply send a string to another radio (a base station), but I can’t get it done. I tried the default “xbee” library first to try to send data, but I couldn’t work out how it really worked for sending simple strings. Then I tried XBeeClient, a library that’s supposedly useful for this kind of “easy” applications. However, it didn’t really work. A weird message keeps appearing in the Debug Console: “Waiting for more bytes from serial port, message length indicates more bytes comming” even though I’m not trying to receive anything.
I found out later that this library, XBeeClient, was only supposed to work with XBee modules using “ZigBee”. My modules don’t have the full ZigBee stack, though. (Well, I think so. In XCTU, Digi’s software for setting up Xbees, the modules I use are not marked as “ZigBee”).
Do you know what I can do to make this simple application work, with the hardware I have?
Thank you very much!
