    i plugged in the router device(xbee 2) in the bread board, connected as follows
    pin2-Dout is connected to Din pin3(for loop back test)

    It's difficult to say without more information.

    What are the scan channel (SC), Operating Channel (CH) and Operating PAN ID (OP) values for each radio?

    Also what mode is each radio operating in (AT or API)?

    What kind of output are you getting on the router XBee's pins 15 (ASSOC) and 6 (RSSI) when performing the range test?
