hi I got my waspmote order just two days ago;my order number is 1001621-23/05/2012. I came across a serious problem for my waspmote/waspmote gateway;
I ordered 1 waspmote gateway and 4 waspmotes with XBee Pro; BTW I forgot to order SD card 2 GB
My computer is Windows 7 64 bits
Phase I: I charged the 4 waspmotes Li-on batteries via USB cables for 24 hours
Phase II: Following Quick Start Guide(http://www.libelium.com/development/waspmote/quickstart
) I downloaded waspmote IDE for windows and configured it settings. I can't find where I can set the 4 parameters in quick start guideLaunch the serial monitor application (manual chapters 14.2, 14.3 and 14.4) and set the next parameters:
USB port: 38000bps
1 bit stop
no parity setting
But still, when I plugged waspmote gateway in my desktop and turned on waspmote 1, my Serial Monitor received data frame showing MAC, xyz, temperature, battery like this in checklist:
Phase III: I continued to follow Quick Start Guide, and thought I could upload "hello world!" program to Waspmote 1 via waspmote gateway. But it gave me error "avrdude: tk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00 avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x51 ".
I realized I might got the same mistake like http://www.libelium.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=8817
that I should connect Waspmote directly with desktop USB;
Phase IV: I bought a new 2GB micro SD card from Bestbuy and inserted it into Waspmote 1; I unplugged waspmote gateway and connected Waspmote 1 directly with desktop USB; I used waspmote IDE to upload "hello world!" program to waspmote 1; the Serial Monitor printed out "hello world!" every 2 seconds
Phase V: I started to try Over-the-air programming. I downloaded otap libray and configured xbee.conf. Waspmote gateway is connected with my desktop USB and waspmote 1 is swiched on. I ran otap64.bat in command line to search waspmote node(-scan_nodes) but can't find any. I switched on waspmote 2,3,4 but still can't find any. The problem occured.
Phase VI: I stopped otap64.bat and closed command line window. I set Tools->Board and Tools->Serial Port in waspmote IDE correctly. I repeated Phase II with waspmote 1, but serial monitor was always empty. No mac frames,xyz, temperatures, battery data. I repeated Phase II with waspmote 2,3,4, but serial monitor was still always empty.
Phase VII: Maybe only Waspmote 1 came with a default program which shows the MAC address of the waspmote through the gateway as shown in Phase II, but waspmote 2,3,4 didn't.
so by following checklist( http://www.libelium.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=7702
) I unplugged waspmote gateway from my desktop and connected Waspmote 1 directly with desktop USB; I found wasp_start_program_full_ZB_v1.pde in waspmote IDE exmple folder, saved it, compiled it, uploaded it to Waspmote 1 successfully. Then I disconnected Waspmote 1 from my desktop and plugged waspmote gateway with my desktop USB. I set Tools->Board and Tools->Serial Port in waspmote IDE correctly. I repeated Phase II with waspmote 1, but still serial monitor was always empty. No mac frames, xyz, temperatures, battery data.
Note that I inserted my new 2GB micro SD card in waspmote 1. Waspmote 1,2,3,4 should all come with the same default program which shows the MAC address like in Phase II. I didn't modify programs in waspmote 2,3,4. Is it because waspmote gateway is broken when I tired to upload "hello world" program to waspmote 1 via waspmote gateway in Phase III?
What could be the problem? Do you think I need to send my new order back to libelium via Fedex for repair?
