I' ve created two extended star networks, one in channel 0 and one in channel 1, and I want to extend this topology into a multi hop network, where sinks would be able to communicate with each other, and send their data.
I changed the data report, so the end nodes and the extenders send only once to sink, also I tell sink to transmit what it just received to the other sink. I guess I can do it if I change the addresses of the sinks, because both have 0x00. I changed the address of the second sink to 0x0A, but when I type the info command at sink's console, I get node id as default again (0x00).
Also, I've tried to transmit using Rail's functions, because the two networks use different channels. But I get no result.
I want to ask if it is feasible to make sinks communicate with each other, also if I can use rail's functions only for sink, using StartTx at the other sink's channel at one sink, and StartRx at the other sink's channel at the second sink. And lastly, if it is nessesary to change the addresses of the sinks for that reason.
Connect Star network supports only 1-hop.
In Connect networks there can be only one coordinator (sink in your case) and its address is fixed to 0x0000.
Calling RAIL functions from Connect applications are not supported.
Since you use 2.4GHz (Thunderboard Sense 2 supports 2.4GHz only) if you need multi-hop possibility you may want to check our Zigbee stack.
If you have Zigbee related questions it is better to open a case in the Zigbee forum.
