Topic: DKU-5 color code confusion
I've searched far and wide and looks like there's conflicting views on what wires to run to the serial port on the wgt634u.
Vcc 1 2 3 4 1: Vcc
Tx __________ 2: Tx / D-
Rx |-*--*--*--*-| 3: Rx / D+
GND |__________| 4: GND
1) Does Vcc need to be connected?
2) If (totally hypothetically... no way I did this...) someone mutilates the cell phone pop port before matching up the wire colors using http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhones-Nokia/nokia_pop_pinout.shtml then how does one match the colors up because surely these cheap ebay china things don't remain consistent. - I've tried continuity testing using the USB diagram above, but maybe the circuit needs power or something?
3) How exactly do you minicom into this thing? From what I understand you open up minicom in linux, set it to use 115200 8N1, switch from hardware to software flow control - then hold down Ctrl+C while you power cycle the router. Yes? No? I used http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/HowTo/AddASerialPort as a reference but couldn't get anything above 1V (just having the USB plugged into my laptop and the other end stripped and hanging so I could use a multimeter on the various wires)
4) Is it possible my DKU-5 is fried?
