802.15.4 radio for Raspberry Pi2

Wed Apr 06, 2016 1:20 pm

Hi All,

I have a Raspberry Pi 2 which is running RASPBIAN JESSIE - 4.1.19-v7. I'm trying to use the 802.15.4 radio with it and one of the requirement is to have the header file "ieee802154_netdev.h"

When i try to install the linux headers it says the available version is "linux-headers-3.10-3-rpi"

Has anybody tried to use the 802.15.4 radio with Pi2?

Use an XBee Series 1. Series 2 is Zigbee only and unless your nodes move and NEED mesh networking, or nodes NEED to interoperate with home automation ZIgbee things (assuming the things don't hold this proprietary), use Series 1.
Nice Python library for it.

I also use the Xbee modules with the python library though I've been using the Zigbee Series 2. They work very well.
