I solved my problem......reset everything and started over.
This is my first experience with an Xbee (S1) device. I'm working on a project which calls for 2, 1mw Xbee's with 1 usb adaptor, all Parallax brand. One Xbee will be interfaced to my laptop (USB) and the other will be mounted (soldered) on a pcb (microcontroller) to control amateur radio antennas in AZ/EL.
To get prepared for the Xbee installation, I first did some research and watched a number of Youtube tutorials, then downloaded and installed X-ctu (Next Gen). When trying to configure the first Xbee, I immediately ran into a problem whereby I was asked to insert some encryption data so, being totally confused by the Next Gen program (I hadn't viewed any tutorials that looked like Next Gen), I decided to back-track and go to the Legacy program and start over. Now I'm not able to download updates under the configuration tab.....says it's missing a configuration file. In the process, I noticed that under the Setup tab, it indicated a baud rate of 9600 and the Configuration tab drop down menu indicates a 1200 baud rate and I can't change it to 9600.
I guess I've got both of the Xbees botched up somehow.
Can someone help?
