Ok. I think you are missing one thing: One of the XOs has to be connected to
an AP or with a USB-Ethernet dongle connected to your internal network. This
XO will then provide a mesh network for the others.
So try that, then see if you get a mesh circle in the neighborhood view.
After that, the other XOs should be able to connect to that mesh network. If
it doesn't work right away try rebooting the other XOs.
Keep me posted.
