So I have an Xbee regulated explorer with an Xbee and I am connecting




5V - 5V

but X-CTU(old version) is not seeing the Xbee when I click test/query. It goes and then says "Action Required unable to communicate with modem." I have the right com port and I tried connecting RESET - GND on my arduino and I tryed removing the chip entirely but nothing works. Please Help. Thanks!
