XBee S2 doesnt connect after being separated for hours. Is this by design or do I need to change a parameter?

When I drive home the XBee in the car is looking for the XBee in the house. When I do short trips they seem to connect but after several hours apart they don’t? Do they stop looking after a certain period of time and can I change a parameter to look no matter how long they are apart?

What do you have them configured as? Try configuring them as a Coordinator and Router with the Watch dog timer turned off. You will then find them staying connected regardless.

Thank You so much for taking the time to answer my question. I have been driving up & down the street all day and finally figured out I needed to extend the range of my network from one side of the house to the other.

I found that your suggestions were insync with my settings so I started looking for other reasons and think distance was causing me so much pain. Also adobe walls!

Thanks again
