 +===== Debricking with Serial Terminal ===== 
 +Note: The router'​s serial port uses 3.3v logic, do not connect a regular 12v serial cable to it. 
 + 
 +  - Assign your computer a static IP address(i.e. 192.168.1.2) and connect to port 4 on the router 
 +  - Open serial terminal. See [[http://​wiki.openwrt.org/​doku.php#​serial | Serial]] for pinout and specs. 
 +  - Reboot router and press Ctrl+C as soon as you see CFE messages 
 +  - At the CFE> prompt, enter '​tfptd'​ to start the tftp server 
 +  - The router is now waiting for a tfpt connection, follow the [[http://​wiki.openwrt.org/​doc/​howto/​generic.flashing.tftp#​bootloader.contains.tftp.server | tftp guide]] for more information 
 +    * Note: the router is expecting a .chk file. You must use the stock firmware or the dd-wrt initial flashing image. 
 +  - The router will reboot automatically when the process is complete
