Hi All,

I have zig2serial,zig100 and zig110. I connect the zig110 to atmega16, ang zig100+zig2serial in PC.
I sending a data from zig110 to zig100+zig2serial. I see the indicator RX in zig2serial is blink, but i can't read the data
from my computer.
I using C# code program to reading zig2serial data.

Any solution for this problem?
Please help me.

Thanks for all.

Do you receive absolutely nothing?
There is no data to read? (serialPort.BytesToRead)

The divide and conquer tactic,
- create the most simple PC program to receive data, so you are sending data correctly (CM-5xx->PC Test code)
- cerate the most simple CM-5xx program to send data, testing that you are receiving data correctly (CM-5xx Test code->PC)

- If all works you could continue adding code step to step until it fails or your initial program works.
- If all fails, probably you should learn a little more about it, search articles, books, tutorials, examples... you may find some help at http://softwaresouls.com/softwaresouls/tag/serial-port/
- If a part fails you can focus in that part to find and fix the problem

Hope it helps :)

Thanks for your reply siempre.

I have read data from zig2serial using c#. i found my problem. the problem is switch usb2dinamyxel (rs232 switch) is bad contact. i repair it, and i found my solution.
