    I want to get data from two or more xbee to single xbee.

    How can I differentiate which xbee has send which data?

    I am not using microcontroller here.

    Thanks in advance ..........

    Let each xBee append its signature in each data packet.
    You must be processing the received data. Identify the signature to know the source.

    I think that by "not using a microcontroller" he might mean "using DIO mode".

    I can't see how you could use DIO in point to multipoint with the master outputting to the DO pins, surely you must be using the UART output at the receiving end right? If so, then it contains the source address in the output.

    also be aware that zigbee devices have two modes, "controller" and "node". to connect more than one device, one of the radios must be operating in "controller" mode
