Neo, choose the blue pill, the story ends and you will wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. If you take the red one, you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Or take the purple one, or the yellow one, or the green one, or the ecru one, or the “mountain blue” one, or the “forest green” one, or the slightly-pink-but-not-too-pink-one, or the bluish-but-not-too-green-one, or, wait, Neo….where are you going?

It has changed again.
follow this guide but use ftp update wifly7-245.img instead of the one suggested for RN-XV boards
You MUST see an assigned IP address when you join the network or this will never work.
I did 10 board this way at my public library. My work wireless was too secure. I used a Sparkfun Xbee USB breakout board, TerraTerm and that was it.

I am answering myself here. I finally got my two controllers to work with the Arduino after flashing the serial motor controller firmware. What an adventure that was but the compiler ONLY worked when using the Duemilanove, not an UNO so be careful. The controllers will now work with the UNO. I followed the guidelines posted at this website: http://robotics-visionexperiments.blogspot.com/2010/10/re-programming-rob-09571-sparkfun.html
Unzip the Sparkfun files directly onto the C:/ drive to make everything easier in the command prompt arena. You may need the WinAVR compilier, but do all of the work in the Windows command prompt window and make sure your Arduino is running at 19,200 baud before doing anything else. Run the Arduino ISP program (in the “Examples” file of the Arduino software menu) first and go from there. Catch the right port number, etc…with every command prompt you cut and past from this website. You can switch the Arduino back.
Has ANYONE got this thing to work?? I have copy and pasted some of the code provided here in this forum, but the compiler gives me an error signal unless I change the coding from:
Serial.write(‘1’); // to control motor 1
It’s the apostrophe on each side of the 1 that has to be changed. I don’t even know what to call the original symbols. Anyway, I have everything downloaded, but nothing happens. No motor, no voltage out, zip. I have two of these boards and nothing seems to work. Help!
