In this video I demonstrate how to connect a BusPirate device to the router and access the serial console with PuTTy! I also show a common mistake when connecting the cables.


Warranty Disclaimer: By opening and modifying your router you forfeit/nullify all warranties. If you break your router while modifying it like I do in my videos, then it is your own fault. Soldering on equipment is not without risks. (I haven’t managed to break my routers yet though.)
