    No! Bootloader still works. But if you don't believe me, you can always clean NVRAM settings by Reset button.

    Yes. Bootloader is still using those port. So your Arduino device must ignore some garbage and wait till router finish booting. console=null is a kernel switch, so port will be silent only when CFE starts kernel.

    Okay, great! Then this is just what I need, thanks!

    Actually I'm using Openwrt Backfire at the moment, and I'm quite sure it works in the same way, here is the command for openwrt if someone else needs it: https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=15165

    The power supply for my wl500gx was busted so I bought a new switching 5v/2A supply. Usually on start up I think it doesn't supply enough current and all the LEDs started flickering. Turning the power on and off a couple times resolves this. However, I recently forgot the password and tried to reset the router. But I think the NVRAM values got corrupted because now there's no power or WiFi LED, and the WAN + LAN acts like a switch.

    So I'm thinking of using the serial port to unbrick it. I went to buy a PL2303 USB module. Can I just connect the headers on the module to the headers on the wl500gx and the USB end to my PC?

    yes, of course. Use of 3 wires (GND, TxD, RxD) is ok

    Thanks. I'll try once my new 5V/3A power supply and PL2303 module arrives.
