Problem with 900 Xbee Module

Hi, I recently purchased a Ardu Pilot Mega Kit along with two 900 xbee modules from the store.

 

Finished soldering up the kit and everything appears to be working fine.  However, I encountered some problems when trying to use the 900 xbee modules.

 

Actually, its just one of the modules - I can't seem to connect to it.  I've tried every available baud rate on the X-CTU program as well and double checked the serial port number, all to no avail.  I keep getting an "unable to communicate with modem" error message.

 

The other module connects at the 5700 baud rate without any problem. 

 

I am using the recommended Sparkfun xbee usb board  for the above configuration.  On the IMU side, I have the recommended DIY Drones board but have not used it with the 900 modules because of the above problem.

 

Is there a problem with the module or am I doing something wrong? 

 

Thanks,

  • Hi,

     

    I'm getting the same error with the diydrones xbee 900 telemetry kit. The X-CTU program reports "unable to communicate with modem" when trying to communicate via the xbee USB dongle.

     

    Any advice on how to fix this? 

     

    Thanks,

    Phil
