I am very new to Xbee and have limited knowledge so please excuse my ignorance. I have two xbee pro s2b's and one explorer to USB as well as another explorer which has pin spacing for a bread board as well as regulating 5v down to 3.3v. The breadboard friendly explorer is made by Parallax. Both xbee's work fine on the USB explorer but I need to wire the other explorer to USB to test its application as eventually it will need to be connected to ethernet output from an ECU. When I put 5v+ and gnd on the explorer it powers up the xbee but when i wire D+ and D- from the usb cable into the D+ and D- on the explorer the computer does not recognize the xbee. The explorer regulated the D+ and D- down to 3.3v also but I still cannot work out why it is not registering?
The USB explorer has D+ and D- pins on it which I connected to the Parallax explorer and managed to get the xbee to register, so I assume the explorer works correctly just its something im missing that stops it functioning correctly
Can someone help me with this?
