X-CTU changing router into a coordinator makes it unreadable.


I have an Arduino Uno and an XBee 3 ZigBee device. I am trying to create a mesh for it I have not found a guide for it I followed the DigiMesh one but, every time I change one of my devices into a Coordinator and I click the ‘Read’ button in X-CTU, It reads it very slowly and all the values are incorrect. When doing this with a Router it works fine. I am using a library to create an extra pair of TX/RX. Trying to change it back to a Router doesn’t seem to work. I am using a regulated board for the XBee from Sparkfun.


From the sounds of it, you have issues with the Library that is being used. You can find the proper manual for the XBee 3 Zigbee firmware by going to https://www.digi.com/support/productdetail?pid=5637&type=documentation

May I suggest you take the arduino out of the picture and see if you can get a network up and going? This will allow you to verify that there is an issue with the code you are working with.
