New user needs some clarification

Hi,

I’m just getting started with Xbee modules, and am confused by a few things.

I purchased several XB24-BWIT-004, and am trying to set up a network. I thought one had to be configured as a coordinator, but I’m not finding an AT command to set this. Does this not apply to this module?

Also, I’m getting the feeling, although it seems strange to me, that the firmware would have to be reflashed to a different version to make a module the coordinator. Is this correct?

It is a ZigBee type.
Please use x-ctu, in order to change firmware.
