I'm trying to communicate with the XBee Wifi from my computer using an ad-hoc network with udp. The XBee settings are:
Network Type - IBSS Creator
Infrastructure mode - Soft AP mode
SSID - XBee Wifi
IP Protocol - UDP
DNS Address - 0.0.0.0
Destination IP Address - 255.255.255.255
Source Port - 2616
Destination Port - 2616
IP Address of gateway - 192.168.1.1
IP Address Mask - 255.255.255.0
Moduel IP Address - 192.168.1.10
API Enable - Transparent mode
Everything else is the default.
Initially, I connect the XBee to the computer. From my computer, I am able to connect to the ad-hoc network (XBee Wifi). I then send udp packets from the computer to the XBee and from the XBee to the computer; however, neither side receives the packets sent from the other side.
I then go to the XBee settings in XCTU, set the protocol to TCP and write it to the XBee; I then immediately set the protocol back to UDP and write it to the XBee. I then send udp packets, and I am now able to receive packets on both sides. Unpowering the repowering the XBee results in me not being able to receive udp packets.
My firmware version is 2024.
