    Hi there,

    Does anyone have any details for connecting a PC to the "Console" port
    of a D-Link DSL-300G+ adsl modem?

    Have tried hooking up an FCC68 4-contact/4-position connector to a DB9
    and connecting via HyperTerm, but to no effect (although not sure
    where a fault, if any, would be in the set-up). Looks like all it
    needs is Ground, RX and TX wires, although I can't find any schematics
    to find out which is TX and which is RX on the modem's connector. The
    4th pin doesn't /look/ like it does anything...

    Something went wrong when saving the config to flash, and the modem
    isn't responding to anything now - no http, telnet or ping. Was hoping
    that a flash upgrade via the console port would help matters, but I
    may have to just see about sending it back.

    Thanks muchly,

    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,

    Have you tried the D-Link support page at ?

    Are you sure that the console port *is* a serial connection? If so, you'll
    need not only to get the wiring right but also to configure with PC's serial
    port with the right baud rate etc.
