By the way, I did install the FTDI drivers for Windows XP. These show up in Device Manager as the drivers for the COM port mentioned above.
I recently purchased three of these and I cannot get X-CTU to recognize them. I have tried it on two separate Windows XP machines, with the same result. When a device is plugged in to USB via an XBee Explorer, I get a red LED lit up on the Explorer board. When I start X-CTU, it shows up in the Select Com Port box as “USB Serial Port (COM4). However, when I hit the "Test / Query” button, I receive an “Info” window which states that it is unable to communicate with the modem. I have tried it with every available Baud rate and with “Enable API” on, to no avail. This is the same for all 3 XBee’s and the 2 XBee Explorer boards that I purchased from SparkFun.
Please help. I’d really like to play with these devices. Thanks.
