If you don't want to crack open the router to connect, you can do a mod that uses a 3.5mm (1/8") stereo jack and plug for your interconnect cable for the adapter. Only thing I suggest is that if you have multiple devices, make sure the internal side of said mod connects correctly so you can use a standard config on the external cable. Single-pair STP audio snake cable works great.
That sounds like a great idea. I do some searching on that kind of mod. Do you have any pictures for placement or the like? Thanks

I'm using the TTL Serial adapter, I'm familiar with old school serial connections on the DB9 ports but I'm not sure if this is considered JTAG or just a slightly different serial connection. Standard serial port shows gibberish when connected. I'll connect it here soon and get a capture of the output.
JTAG uses a parallel port adapter (normally), while PC serial won't work as it's 5V; TTL serial (3.3v) is needed for recovery. _________________ #NAT/SFE/CTF: limited speed w/ DD#Repeater issues#DD-WRT info: FAQ, Builds, Types, Modes, Changes, Demo#
