Wifi Bee v2.0

Wifi Bee v2.0 is the update version of Wifi Bee v1.0. We replace transceiver module MRF24WB0MA which is SPI interface with RN-171 used UART interface. Wifi Bee v2.0 module incorporates 802.11 b/g radio, 32 bit processor, TCP/IP stack, real-time clock, crypto accelerator, power management unit and analog sensor interface. It can directly plug into the Bee sockets and use the UART port for communication. You can also use AT command for advanced configuration to meet your unique requirement.



In this section, we will use Wifi Bee to create a Web server as an sample application. Let's follow the steps below to make it work! Note: In order to configure this module, you will need an adapter or Xbee shield that lets you communicate with the module, before you can plug it and use on other modules.

Hardware Installation

Here's all the hardware needed.

Plug wifi bee into the Bee Socket of your adaptor, and connect adaptor to your computer via Mini USB cable. Before wifi bee donot connect to your network, the ASSOC indicator is in flash state.

Configure Wifi Bee

We need a serial monitor for configuring the Wifi Bee. So before configuring Wifi bee, you need perpare a serial tool. In this case, we choose usual SSCOM3.2

set wlan ssid your router's SSID
set wlan pass your router's password
And the monitor replies with current ip address and opened port. It can be easily figured out that the ip address of my Wifi Bee is and the port is 2000.

For more command, please view the Wifly Command Reference of Resource part.

Connect the TCP server and Wifi Bee

Here we select TCPUDPbg to work as an TCP client and send commands to the Wifi Bee.
