I’ve just got the mBot Blue 2.4g (WiFi) model, and am trying to write a Python program that interfaces via the serial port. I’m using a Windows 7 laptop.
Connecting directly using a USB cable works fine: I can read/write via COM5 port using pySerial.
However, connecting the wireless 2.4g white USB dongle, I can’t read from any COM port (the one I can connect to is COM3, which I reckon must be connected to another serial port on my laptop).
Have I got it wrong, and connecting the wireless 2.4g USB dongle doesn’t create a COM serial port for me to use? If so, how on earth do I connect to the mBot from a Python program using the 2.4g dongle?
