How to set up router device to work in mesh network

Hello everyone!

Well I can see the need to public other topic about my project because I need all possible assintance.

My project is about a Wireless Network sensor, I need to read the measured of ph sensor and to transmit this information to Data Base and to show in other user interface.

Now I can read the pins state of each module and extract the value and display in the console of the Digi ESPe( this program help me with the python scripts because it pack up all library and up to Connect Port X4).

So I need to organize my network with mesh network. I have read about this configuration but the papers no say about the how configure us routers or what is the correct firware_? I have all kit ZNET 2.5 802.15.4 with 3 Xbee-PRO ans 2 Xbee-Series 2.

Please I can help with other setting if you need… but helpe with this… thanks.

first, you want to use the ZB firmware, not ZNet as ZNet is many years old and non-standard.

Second, all you need to do is define 1 node as ‘coordinator’, and any other ‘routers’ should find/join it. You probably want to set the “JV=1” setting, as that causes the router to forget an old coordinator and find a new one if the router reboots. If you don’t set this, it can be hard to ‘move’ a router from an old coordinator to a new replacement coordinator.

Also, ZNet used a default PAN (maybe 234 or 345?), where as ZB has a default of zero (0), meaning any.


You can program the modules as Coordinator/Router/End_device using X-CTU, which is available at the following link,
