I don't see the need for the R-Pi in the mix...


I would rather fry a Pi than a laptop and drivers on Linux are far better than Windows.

The UART adapter board will fry before your laptop. And if you're connecting it correctly, you shouldn't fry anything. Even if there is a picture with information on connections, I have gotten in the habit of verifying Vcc and GND on the router end with a multimeter. RX and TX are trivial, and I tend to not make connections with the router powered up, if I can help it. A proper header with pins and connector for the adapter cable are ideal, but.

I wasn't confident because it was the first time I had attempted something like this. I did have pins and all the right cables.

It was good fun trying to un-brick the TP-Link but ultimately I messed it up but it was only a cheap router. It gives me an excuse to buy something else, possibly an Asus AC-88U. It's router heaven around here, so much choice.

So you're absolutely positive you fried the router. Ok.

PM me your address and I'll send it to you, I would rather it was working and getting some use but having spent 3 days trying to get it going, I give up. Smile
