Xbees are possibly the coolest little wireless units since bluetooth. These things work right out of the box, talking to one another with ease. If you haven't worked with Xbees yet, it's ok, I will be discussing them in a later instructable. For now this is meant for people that have worked with the Xbee at least a little bit. Changing settings in your Xbee is vital when working in certain environments, and with specific projects. In this Instructable we will be discussing Changing the baud rate.
