With a number of brand new XBee Pro Series 2 modules I have found that I am completely unable to communicate with them.
The first pointer to a problem is that the modules do not connect to the (already present) coordinator when powered up in the USB dev. board.
Also the RX and TX leds on the dev. board remain on constantly (as well as the bottom signal strength indicator led).
When doing a test/query in xctu there is no communication with the module at any baud rate in non-api mode. In api mode there is some communication, however it is unable to return a valid model number or firmware version (at any baud rate).
When trying to restore defaults (or write with a typical function set XBP-24B, end-device AT 1247) default in modem configuration tab it gets to the “press reset” prompt, which by doing so does nothing. After pressing cancel I get the message:
“Getting modem type…Failed to enter command mode
Check Com Port and Baud settings and try again.
Ideas? Suggestions? Questions?
