Topic: messing with Siemens SE555, need help

hi there guys

i'm totally new to this community as well as wrt and linux itself, if that helps you out smile
so, that makes me a n00b...

anyway, couple of days ago i started messing with Siemens SE555 ( http://tinyurl.com/m33hpk ) because i have few of them laying around and would like to play with em...
so i crawled up this link http://oldwiki.openwrt.org/OpenWrtDocs( … /Hardware) and realized, huh why not give a try...
first of all i had problems with pinout, couldn't connect the damn router with pc...
anyway, the correct pinout for SE555 10 pin serial is 3:RX 5:TX 9:VCC 10:GND and i connected it to my serial port with this http://tinyurl.com/lyhd5y
okay, so far the connection works fine... i connect to the router using hyperterminal on win XP, 11520, 8, none, 1, no control.. the connection works fine and I get this when router boots up
http://www.sendspace.com/file/z32kzu
and this is when the reset button is pressed http://www.sendspace.com/file/b1yt4i

so here starts the problems... i am trying to send over to the router an already prepared openwrt package... but i can't do it... i'm following the directions from here http://tinyurl.com/lunfp8 of course, for windows xp...
the router has an manufacturer IP address 192.168.2.1, my PC has a static address in that range... tried connecting on the router with WinSCP (using 192.168.2.1:80 and FTP mode) but I always get timed out... same is with cmd line under windows, timed out.... been trying to use a switch between router and pc but still it doesn't work... especially the directions from http://tinyurl.com/lunfp8 which i thought this damn brick of wires and components would work, it doesn't... so after like almost one day in front of this brick i got to teh point i don't know what to do... and since i'm a noob to this, maybe i'm doing a noob mistake smile

so please, if anyone has a good suggestion please tell me...

thanks

greetings

PS- se555 is used in croatia, but i put on the manufacturer firmware from germany (1.30n) cos of better wlan performance
