Hi all,

ive installed Debian on my asus wl500g, connected a usb->serial converter, used the modules to get the system, to recognize the converter (Aten pl2303 compatible)

Now, i would have hoped that this would work, but i can't send any data from the asus, via the usb->serial converter.. i have connected the other end to a normal pc, and connected with hyperterminal.
Which works fine.. but the other way around.. there can't be send anything.

Have someone had the same issue ? i really need for this one to work..

ít's a part of my final school project.

Cheers :-)

If you need a serial port, why don't you just use the UART that's built in to the board? You can get a module from sparkfun to convert the UART's TTL signal to serial. http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=449

There's a post here that talks about adding that serial port on the WL500gx, but it's pretty much the same thing with the 500g

When you say that you connected with hyperterminal what do you mean exactly? Does hyperterminal just say that's it's "connected" or do you actually receive some data in hyperterminal - like do you get a console?

Also, what are you using to try to send data from the router out the serial port? You said that you're running Debian on it - have you tried using minicom?
