    After many hours of research I am struggling to find how to connect the nRF24L01 module to my microcontroler "genie 18". I just do not know what all of the pins should connect to and how the data is to be sent into the module to be received at the other module. I am trying to transmit binary data from the genie chip where it transmits it from the transmitter and is picked up the the receiver and decoded by another genie chip.

    I am unsure of what pins tell the transceiver to be the transmitter or receiver and how to use the CE, CSN,SCK, MOSI, MISO and IRQ and how to actually send the data so i can get the same signal on the receiving end. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

    The datasheet will tell you what every pin does.
    Check page 33 for an example circuit.
    The only thing missing is the connection to your microcontroller.
    How much experience do you have with your microcontroller?

    Page 20 has signalling and info regarding the IRQ
