I have a Sagem 2504 router. Following the advice from OpenWRT wiki . I managed to solder the header pins in the correct place. I've attached pics below. My soldering isn't the best, but I'm working with a gas iron that I'm not too comfortable with.



The pins from right to left are:

Code:
...................o Pwr
...................o Rx
...................o Tx
...................o Gnd


I am using this USB to serial cable:AP4GAH322B-1

I am using Minicom 2.2 on the Mac to connect to the router via serial.

These are the steps I follow:

    1.Connect cable to header pins. Pwr -> Pwr, Rx -> Tx, Tx -> Rx, Gnd -> Gnd.

    2.Open terminal on mac and type: /opt/minicom/2.2/bin/minicom -s

    3.In Minicom I've tried various baud rates. I use, but the recommendation is 9600 8N1

    4.Minicom initializes the modem, but when I press CTRL + A mincom says Offline. Nothing is displayed in the terminal.


Note that when testing I do not plug the router into the mains. I use the 3.3v header. I've tried with power though, which didn't solve my problem.

I'm at a bit of a loose end here. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong or what I'm missing?
