Hello all, new to this forum.
I am running 2 XBP24-ZBD’s on two separate USB adapter boards ( made by Parallax). I have written to both, and have set them up as 1)coordinator, and 2) router. Running X-CTU (Version 184.108.40.206). Running XP.
It appears I mistakenly updated firmware to API and not AT. So, now I can no longer communicate to computer via USB port to coordinator.
Are we supposed to be able to communicate on USB port, if in API mode???
I get loop back test 100% from router.
I get nothing from Coordinator because coordinator can not open port to computer.
Coordinator can not enter command mode
When try to read: response:
Failed to enter command mode
Unable to read Version (ATVR)
On PC Settings>>test query, I get a box that says:
" Communication with modem . OK
Modem type=Name unknown (ID=4294967248-1073741809)
Modem firmware version= "
I have tried all baud rates, I have seen on other forum Q’s others suggest giving a reset just after “write” or during the “waiting for modem reset” period. I have un-plugged the unit. I have swapped usb cables. I have swapped the USB adapter boards. All this over and over.
Any one have an Idea on this, I need help with this interface.
FOUND THE PROBLEM*********
So simple, I wonder how may people wasted an hour here:
In PC Setup>>Host Setup>>:
both buttons need to be checked: Enable API, and Use Escape Characters[ATAP=2].
NOW ALL WORKS. Too bad there is not a manual(quick start style), for X-CTU!
