I have a propeller WX activity board and XBee S2C unit is plugged inti XBee socket and is powered with 9V DC.
When I try to run discover hardware via propeller tool, NO propeller chip is detected.
But when I remove the XBee the Prop tool detects the prop chip.
There is no other hardware is attached to the activity board WX.
I need some help to remedy this issue. I read somewhere a solution - RTS/CTS reset ?.
but I am unable to find it.

Thank you,



  • Maybe the Xbee is plugged in the wrong way. Or something is shorted and dragging power supply down.

  • Check the WX board docs. With the XBee plugged in, the board might be expecting uploads to occur from a WX module. But there's a jumper selection available to override this automatic redirection.


  • @DigtalBob - the XBee is plugged in correctly - the association and Wx led are both lit.
    Thanks for your reply.
