Not sure if that is the best place to ask this, but decided to try anyway :twisted:
I've gotten myself a couple of Xbee units (http://www.maxstream.net/products/xbee/xbee-oem-rf-module-zigbee.php) . Xbee is basically USART wireless transmiter/receiver. However I am having trouble with it's "out-of-the-box" configuration and would like to change some of the settings. (Basically I want it to transmit USART sygnals between 2 AVRs). However in order to change the settings on this unit it needs to be hooked up to the PC and "reprogrammed". MaxStream (manufacturer) also sells development kits (http://www.maxstream.net/products/xbee/dev-kit-zigbee.php) however they are on the expensive side. Especially taking into account the fact that software is free and downloadable from their website. So basically the extr 100$ or so they are charging for a programmer and some packaging (bah!).
So, long story short, my question is, does anyone have a schematic of such programmer, or knows how to set up the unit(s) for USART comm between 2 AVRs?
Thanks in advance.
