Xbee Mesh router / repeater with destination adress


I’m using Xbee S8 for a mesh network.

I have 1 coordinator and multiple routers.

During my application, I change the destination address of the coordinator to talk to a specific router using AT commands, while the destination address of my routers is always the coordinator one (configured once at init).

Will the routers still act as repeaters in the network even if their destination address are set to the coordinator ? Or do I have to set DH: 0 DL: FFFF when I don’t specifically need to talk to the coordinator ?


Yes by all means. A router will still act as a router and forward data on. The Destination address function only controls the data being sent via the UART.
