All things pertaining to wireless and RF links

Hi, I'm connecting a Xbee Series 2 on a breakout board to an Arduino to configure it. I soldered some header pins on to the breakout board to make the connections. Ultimately, I'm going to connect the Arduino with a Raspberry Pi over Zigbee.

I run XCTU on my Mac and the software recognizes the Xbee device. I can write the PAN ID to it, though it won't let me update it to be in Coordinator API mode. It says to reset it, which I attempt to do by connecting the RST pin to ground. That doesn't work though.

How else can I attempt to manually reset the Xbee? Or am I even going about coordinating the Xbee in the correct way?
