HI Andre

You are most welcome to ask about Xbee setup.
I using the XBP24-ZB firmware. One Xbee is programmed as a coordinator and the other is programmed as a router.

I have found that the end devise tends to go to sleep and can be quite troublesome to get it awake again. I will post my setting for my Xbees later today.
