  • Just purchased qty=2 of these in anticipation of using it / them instead of the WRL-11812 (I use with a USB changer). Using a Macintosh Air (2011 version with Yosemite). When I plug into my Mac, it isn’t being seen. Can’t see it in any of the listed devices in XCTU. Looked at a devices listing (ls /dev/* using terminal) and can’t see it. Verified the XBEE radio can be seen with the 11812 first. Also, when plugging in, the (I assume power) red LED lights up and stays lit. Using the little ‘reset’ button, I can see a small led lights up momentarily. Anyone else using this with a Mac? What, if anything, did you do to get it to show up? Lastly, what is the device name you see once you’ve plugged it in? TIA for replies.

    Follow-on: Got it working. Downloaded drivers (URL http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm, 2.2.18 works fine on Yosemite) and installed. Can see the device. Just don’t see needing to install drivers much on a Mac.

No public wish lists :(
