Does anyone have experience with using NRF24L01 with USB-TTL converter? (All my GPIO pins are already in use, that's why I need the USB converter).

I have a NRF24L01 + USB-TTL combo plugged into my PC and another combo plugged into the USB port of my RPi3b+.

I'm having trouble getting a connection over putty. My goal is to login to the RPi from my PC over long range serial connection

Found no guides to using the NRF with the USB-TTL converter. Any help is very appreciated!

You need to ask the vendor.

The NRF24L01 only supports a SPI interface.

There must be firmware on your linked module which is converting serial commands into SPI commands and vice versa. The vendor needs to give you the details of that interface.

  • I forgot to mention my goal is to login to the RPi from the PC. Would I need to write a python script for this? Or shouldn't I be able to use Putty to make a serial connection between the two NRF modules?
