|Hi, I've bricked my TL-WR841N version 7.2 router and need help with the whole serial recovery method.
Here is what I know :-
1.Pinout = TX RX GND VCC
2.I need a 3/4-pin header and the Nokia CA-42 cable.
3.I need something like Putty/U-boot.
Here is what I want to know :-
1. Do I need to "VCC and TX with a 10k resistor"?
2.For the 3/4-pin header, what size spacing do I need between the pins/contacts/metal thingys?
3.How do I use putty?
4.How do I know what COM port the USB is connected to?
5.Anything I don't know about this.
