Serial Debug/post Monitor Port?
Posted 03 January 2006 - 10:53 PM
On most routers there is a debug serial port right out of the processor, there's only a level converter chip between it (max232) if even connected (have a router running linux with usb for €25,-!!), maby this is the same?
There's even talk of a j-tag port, used for taking complete control of a unit.
I only hope that those fuses they talk about in the article arent blown and the processor microcode is the same as the debug boxes.
Hopefully someone will have the balls to take a look...

The UART is on pins 1 and 2 of the debug port near the video port. You need a RS-232 transceiver to communicate with it that is 3 volt logic capable. A usb to serial adapter may be a good bet but you would need to verify it isn't going to shoot the wrong power levels to the port.
Progress is being made but people have lives you know....
