I am using a Xbee Pro 900 with the Xtreambee adapter which is connected to my laptop with an FTDI cable. I have the latest version of X-CTU (v 126.96.36.199) running on Windows 7.
I selected the correct COM port but I get the errror message 'Unable to connect to modem' whenever I run the Test/Query function. I tried the procedure of updating the firmware on the Xbee witth the 'Write' function but that gives me the same kind of error as well. I even tried the procedure of unbricking the Xbee but still get the 'unable to connect' error.
I checked all the soldering connections on the Xtreambee with a multimeter and they look ok. When I contacted Digi support, they told me that they had never tested the Xbee with the Xtreambee board and that my Xtreambee board was probably not configured to work with the Xbee.
Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions are welcome. I might end up getting a Sparkfun Xbee USB explorer to see if I am able to connect the Xbee with that.
how did your story end? where you able to make it work?
I have the same problem. Did anyone solve it?
