I purchased two XBee Series 1 modules and have them talking to each other via an FTDI based adapter from Adafruit, and a USB adapter directly.
When running two consoles out of XCTU sending a 10 character packet separated by a 1 second delay, I am loosing between 30% and 60% of the packets. I'm running simple point to point mode, and not using API.
I know that these are not recommended for high-bw applications like streaming, but this isn't that. I'm trying to figure out why I'm loosing the packets.
Any ideas on what diagnostics I can use to see what is going on? I suspect one of the modules is faulty, but can't know for sure. Tried slower baud rates, reset module to default, etc. Also happens when i type letters directly, and not through packets.
