I seem to be having a small problem with the Soft AP pass through mode (CE = 1, DO = 0). Although I have successfully configured the module and the module is working as a AP, it does not appear to commit the Soft AP configuration to flash with the WR command. When I reboot the XBee all the Soft AP settings are lost and I need to re-configure them via resending the required AT commands from my application.
I should point out this is a small recent change to my application, which previously operated only in STA mode. I have simply added the ability to configure CE=1 or 2 according to user requirements and issue identical set of AT commands otherwise.
When I configure CE=2 (STA mode) followed by WR, on reboot the STA settings are retained and the device joins the network automatically (just at it did previously). All well and good.
However if I set CE=1 (Soft AP mode) and issue a WR, the Soft AP comes up and works immediately following being configured - but the SoftAP settings are lost on a subsequent reboot.
For example on reboot the SSID is blank and encryption is set Open (not WPA2 as configured). As a result no Soft AP is broadcast.
Question: Should the S6B be able to commit a Soft AP pass through configuration to flash with a WR command? Does anyone else have this working? Or is it really necessary to re-configure Soft AP Pass Through mode on each reboot?
Many thanks in advance for your input.
