I have this other question in which I am trying to connect to a router using a serial connection from my Raspberry PI.
I am able to see the input from the boot loading messages using minicom but it's a little bit off; the words all appear but they are not left justified.
Also eventually when the router boots up, I get a prompt which gives me a clue as to what SoC is being used on the router,
ar7240> but when I try to type into the prompt minicom goes crazy and prints like 10 lines for every character I type.
I'm pretty sure I have the basics for baud correct as I pulled those out of the OpenWRT wiki for this specific router. I'm uncertain if the resister I'm using is the right one; it's definitely a 10k but I'm unsure if the watts are correct.
P.S. I'm pretty new to using minicom for this, but it for some reason reminds me of using Dialup BBS systems with programs like CommIT back in the day.
